A Collett’s Winter Holiday

Welcome to Collett’s in winter

In Winter, Collett’s is in the heart of the Dolomites. Corvara, Badia & Arabba are nestled under some of the world’s most majestic peaks. We offer 3 catered chalets, 2 hotels, a B&B and self-catering apartments. This is the perfect springboard for inspirational days out on snowshoes and some of the best skiing in the world.

Collett’s is about the personal touch. Our painstakingly-recruited hosts set us apart from the rest. They don’t wear uniforms or sell excursions. They will make you feel welcome, well-looked-after and well informed. Each evening over a pre-dinner drink they are on hand to help you plan your days, whether you choose to join our daily skiing or snowshoeing itineraries or you opt to self-guide.

Here at our UK office, you can communicate with people who have lived in our resorts and know our winter holidays intimately. Their key aim is to make the booking process pleasurable and plain-sailing right from your initial enquiry.

Skiing & Snowshoeing

Our winter holidays are for snowshoers and skiers. Snowshoers and walkers can explore a magical winter paradise on a labyrinth of woodland and riverside tracks. Higher up, they can venture on to waymarked trails that traverse remote snowfields and experience the rocky reaches of the mountains themselves. Meanwhile, on a skiing holiday in the Dolomites, you can explore one of the largest, prettiest and most queue-less ski networks in the world with the celebrated 28km Sella Ronda at its heart. We have 1220kms of piste, which is known as Dolomiti Superski and it comprises 12 separate ski areas, each one a comprehensive winter resort in its own right.

Winter Mountain Holidays with a difference

We are a small, independent and ABTA bonded holiday specialist offering summer and winter holidays in Europe’s most majestic mountains. These holidays come with an ever-present human touch, which aims to make a Collett’s holiday a complete pleasure, from your initial enquiry right through to the end of an unforgettable stay.

For hillwalkers and summer alpine enthusiasts, visit our summer homepage for walking holidays in the Austrian Alps, the Italian Dolomites, the Picos de Europa and the Pyrenees and read about a unique and flexible holiday formula.

Our winter holidays in the Italian Dolomites will captivate skiers and snowshoers. We are at the heart of Italy’s largest, prettiest and most modern ski network, whilst for snowshoeing and winter walking, a real winter wonderland unfolds away from the ski pistes. Our accommodation options are varied. We offer catered chalets in Corvara and Badia, self catering in Arabba, Badia & Corvara – and two exquisite winter hotels, one in Badia, the other in Corvara. There is also an option of half board accommodation in Arabba, which we call hosted apartments, whereby you can mix the independence of apartment accommodation with the sociable conviviality of dining with other guests.

Also, our amazing winter ski safaris offer a guided form of hut to hut skiing, exposing you to the hidden jewels of Dolomiti Superski. You can join a group safari or create your own private ski safari by mustering up a group of 8-14 people. We also offer deluxe and gourmet ski safaris.

Other specialist holiday packages with Collett’s include walking in Andalucia in Spring and Autumn when the sub-tropical climate of mountainous southern Spain is ideal for walkers, whilst from late June to late September, you can do self guided walking itineraries from hut to hut in the Dolomites. Finally, each September, you can join us for a week of sensational high level walking on the celebrated GR11 in the Pyrenees.

Our outstanding reputation has its foundations in our love and extensive knowledge of our destinations. This has been nurtured in many different ways, often by the special friendships and mutual respect we share with local people. We also pride ourselves on our hospitality; it is unassuming, warm and un-interfering – yet ever-present and attentive to detail. In the mountains, our painstakingly-recruited hosts set us apart from the rest. They don’t wear uniforms or sell excursions. In their friendly way, they are simply on hand to pass on their knowledge, provide outstanding food and ensure you get the best from your time in the mountains, whatever your interests or ambitions.

Meanwhile, at our office in the market town of Saffron Walden, another small team of people also dedicates itself to the complete success of your holiday. Most of this team have lived in our destinations and we can therefore help you make the best choices on every aspect of your stay. We make the booking process easy and pleasurable so that you feel in safe hands and uplifted by your conversations with us, whether they take place over the telephone or via email.

The most common request from the guests who stay with us year after year is to keep it small and personal. Their wish is our command. We hope to see you in the mountains soon.
