WIN! A HOLIDAY WORTH £2,450
Our Christmas present to you? The chance to win a week of fun-packed, snow-filled activities in the Austrian Tyrol, courtesy of Inntravel.
Reposing on the shores Lake Achensee, where the bright waters never entirely freeze, the Tyrolean village of Pertisau offers scenic cross-country trails and downhill skiing, along with a host of other snow-based activities on the ‘quiet side of the mountain’.
We have teamed up with Inntravel to offer one lucky reader and their companion a week’s holiday at their most consistently and highly praised hotel. The Wiesenhof has belonged to the Entner family for generations and is a ‘4-star superior’ hotel. Inntravel customers rave about the warmth of the welcome (“a great balance between 'big hotel' facilities and 'small hotel' service”), the attention to detail and the excellent food – breakfast, a light lunch and dinner are included each day, as well as afternoon cakes.
Besides the skiing, there are miles of winter walking trails to be enjoyed here, plus ice skating, curling and tobogganing – or even a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow-covered valleys. But there is plenty of time to take it easy, too: admire Christmas card-worthy views from your spacious balcony, relax with a drink and a good book by the bar’s open fire, or loll around in the large, state-of-the-art spa.
