Bargain ski vacations

Bargain Ski Vacations

Consider making Vermont the new destination for your next unforgettable ski vacation. With the abundance of natural beauty, cozy hotels and host of unique regional activities to partake in within the region, you may even find that a Vermont ski vacation could become a yearly tradition.

The skiing and outdoor sports are unparalleled in Vermont. With the volume of snow received, as well as the abundance of picturesque mountain peaks in the Green Mountain range, there are truly few other places in America better suited for skiing and snowboarding. Okemo, Stratton, Stowe Mountain and Killington are just a few of the many world-renown Vermont locations for unrivaled winter slope sports.

Of course, after a long day of physical activity, you will want to be sure that you have a luxurious suite and delicious food to come back to. The quaint inns and stately hotels are another asset of Vermont ski vacations. Prices are often very affordable, as low as $169 for a two-person room during the peak time of ski season. These hotel rooms many times have the luxurious extras you would expect from a fine establishment, such as jacuzzis, working fireplaces and WiFi. In addition, though, many of the hotels are converted from old farms and homesteads, which means that they are full of beautiful antiques and charming architectural details that you would not find at a modern chain establishment.

The hearty and delicious food can often be an unexpected highlight of ski vacation packages. Many inns offer a full bar and grill, some with local spirits. A great number of establishments offer exquisite meals that include freshly baked bread and entrees, desserts or salads using local and seasonal ingredients.

Often bed and breakfasts can be some of the best deals, because the first meal of the day is included most of the time. When you are getting up early to hit the slopes, a hearty homemade breakfast can be had quickly in house, instead of having to seek out something to eat in town before you go. This saves both time and money.

For your next ski vacation, consider the great value in Vermont’s natural landscape, cozy lodging and delicious home cooked dining.

San telmo 8

San Telmo 8.5: A Review Of Buenos Aires Apartments For Rent

San Telmo 8.5 Review

I was at first interested in renting an apartment in Palermo or Recoleta. But then I was told by someone I had just met in Berlin that when I visit Buenos Aires the place to stay is really this 8.5 apartment in San Telmo. I had previously stayed in Palermo and I did tend to agree with him that I thought that Palermo is becoming too trendy and with all the new high rises it doesn’t have that old world charm of some of the other sections of the city. So I was able to get a reservation at 8.5 in San Telmo and was very happy with my choice.

Apartment 8.5 (or Ocho Punto Cinco as it’s often referred to) is situated closely to the world-famous art district and Dorrego Square.
I found the 800 square foot apartment to be the perfect size for me. In the past the littel 40 or 50 square meter apartment of Palermo I found to be just too small. But here the large open rooms and queen master bed (as well as the smaller bed upstarirs) I found to be perfect.

The 8.5 apartment is in the beautiful French style. It has high ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors and customized stained glass. The apartment is large and airy and allow for lots of sunshine in the living room study and bedroom areas. It’s important not to forget the gorgeous spiral staircase that leads to a storage area and also a bedroom on the upper floor. The furniture is customized and you also find amongst the modern appliances.

The overall design theme and feel of the apartment is modern classical however, it still embodies old world charm that you may find throughout Buenos Aires. The 8.5 apartment has many amenities. They include a queen-size bed that has four posts, top-of-the-line bed linens and blankets, an armoire a workspace area that includes a desk where one can work or study. There are also wooden doors, beautiful hardwood floors and the master bedroom is air-conditioned. There is also a quaint kitchen nook where one can eat breakfast. I also found the antique bath tub very relaxing and a nice break from the city.

Individuals or families will also find modern appliances such as a washing machine, refrigerator, microwave, a coffeemaker and everything that you will need to make a delicious meals. There is also cleaning service once a week, so you don’t have to be worried about handling that chore yourself. Apartment 8.5 is located off of the main street, so you don’t have to worry about a lot of traffic or constantly being disturbed by noise. There are also security doors within the apartment allowing you to feel safe while in the city. I also appreciated that the doors would completely block out the noise and light so in case I wanted to take an afternoon nap, that would be easy to do.

In review, San Telmo 8.5 is perfect for individuals who plan to visit Buenos Aires and don’t want to stay in a hotel.
