Ah, Mr Bond . . . we’ve been expecting you!
Be stirred not shaken on a 007-style adventure, as SkiWeekends.com flies you to the finest resorts in the Alps for a wild weekend of snowsports and 007 fun
It’s not just diehard fans of James Bond who are looking forward to the return of Daniel Craig as 007 in Skyfall this month. Many of us secretly envy the daredevil, hedonistic lifestyle of the playboy superspy. When he’s not enjoying the thrills of skiing down mountainsides, he’s living the high life in the best restaurants and casinos.
Thankfully, this year you too can experience the Bond viveur with your very own weekend away of adventure and VIP treatment . . . and, thankfully, none of the Bond baddies!
Skiweekends.com offers fully protected, ready-made ski weekends to Europe’s top resorts that include flights, transfers and accommodation – all at prices that won’t require Miss Moneypenny to requisition Her Majesty’s millions!
In fact, there are no hidden extras. All prices include four nights’ accommodation, with B&B and half-board options, flights and airport taxes, return airport transfers by private coach, mini-bus or train and the services of a friendly skiweekends.com representative in most resorts.
You can choose from a range of carefully selected, quality hotels in Courchevel, Val d’Isere, Chamonix, Courmayeur, Saas-Fee, St Anton and Zermatt. And getting to your dream destination has never been easier. With departures now from 15 airports all over the UK, flying British Airways, easyJet, Swiss or Aer Lingus, and many resorts just one to two hours transfer away, travel time has been reduced significantly – meaning you can spend the very best part of your long weekend simply enjoying adrenaline–fuelled snowsports on majestic Alpine mountains.
From just £259 for three days on the slopes, you can be stirred not shaken by a ski weekend to remember. If all the fun and derring-do seems simply too attractive and you’re looking to stay longer, a full-week ski holiday can start from just £239.
Even if you’re not quite as skillful at 007 on the slopes – and, let’s face it, who could be? – there are plenty of slopes and runs at SkiWeekends.com’ resorts to suit absolute beginners, not to mention schools where you can learn the basics in a weekend. And that means in a ski area such as the 3 valleys, you can be up and exploring the green runs in no time at all.
Accommodation is suitably luxurious for a 00-agent. In Reberty, for example, Chalet Anthony and Cleopatra are twin chalets with flat screen TVs and hot tub facilities. Each has a lounge, a balcony with fantastic views and a dining room. If you’d like to throw a Bond-style soiree, a separating door between the chalets can be opened to allow both to be used by a group of up to 16 guests. The chalets are also superbly situated just 50m from the piste, which means you can ski almost to your door. The nearest bar-restaurant is just 100m away, while the fabulous L’Ours Blanc restaurant is close by. Should you require space for the Aston Martin, there is also off-road parking! Prices start from £520 for a standard weekend in mid -December.
What’s more, for Bond Girls – and Boys! – many of SkiWeekend.com’ resorts boast luxurious and pampering spas, where you can enjoy rejuvenating massages and relaxing beauty therapies.
And let’s not forget the famous après ski – after all, there's nothing more rewarding for the hard-playing superspy after a day on the slopes than fine food, great company and a couple of vodka-martinis by a roaring open fire.
