Holiday Type / Family Christmas Breaks

Whether you’re seeking that elusive white Christmas or can’t wait to escape the snow and head to warmer climates, our luxury family Christmas breaks are designed to provide you with the greatest luxury of all, time with your loved ones. Some destinations are just better at Christmas; in these places there is an infectious feeling of festive cheer that permeates the air at this time of year. Think ice skating beside the tree at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, or sipping mulled wine as you stroll through European Christmas markets.

For those families seeking guaranteed snowfall, Christmas amongst snow-capped mountains and days spent skiing the slopes are the place to be. In Lapland, children will love waking up to a fresh dusting outside every morning and once you cut down and decorate your own tree for your chalet, have a woodland breakfast with Santa and take them on a guided tour of the elves’ workshop they’ll wish it was Christmas every day. If the harsh chill of winter has you looking further afield for your festive celebrations, escape the cold and catch some winter sun on a secluded beach in the Caribbean, or make the most of this time together and go off-grid on an island in the Indian Ocean.
