Great getaways: Ski the Rockies, P&O cruise sale, Christmas gift to Venice and a Classic Collection's winter warmers
Saturday 14 December 2013
Ski the Rockies
Done Verbier and Val d'Isère – then how about Vail instead? The second-largest ski resort in the North America – after Whistler-Blackcomb – stands amid Colorado's mighty Rocky Mountains. On 22 January, depart with Delta flights from Heathrow to Denver via Detroit, for a week's catered stay at Chalet Timberline for £1,439pp, transfers included (skiamericaonline.co.uk).
P&O's sale on Caribbean cruises continues until midnight tomorrow. Examples include a 15-night trip aboard the Azura, which costs £999pp with flights to Barbados and stops in St Vincent, Dominica, Saint Lucia, Antigua, St Kitts, Grand Turk, Tortola and St Maarten. Choose from a range of departures between 10 January and 8 March (pocruises.co.uk).
If you've yet to settle on a Christmas gift for that special someone, consider a break to Venice. Cresta has one well-priced option for £149pp, including three nights' B&B at the Orion Hotel near St Mark's Square and easyJet flights from Gatwick on 20 January, when the lagoon city will be crowd-free and cloaked in wintry magic (crestaholidays.co.uk).
Classic Collection has a range of five-star mid-haul escapes to warmer climes after New Year. Examples include eight nights at Santa Cruz in Tenerife from £639pp, staying at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Mencey on 6 January. Or, there's a week in Cyprus for £569pp, staying at the Le Méridien Limassol on 5 January. Both include breakfast, transfers and flights from Gatwick (classic-collection.co.uk).
