Summer 2019

26 Finding the Finest The route to the pinnacle of Alpine luxury for the winter ski season may lie through Mallorca. It is there that you’ll find the home of Finest Holidays – Luxury Travel by Katrin Wittich, a curated collection of the world’s most luxurious, most beautiful, most jaw-dropping and awe- inspiring vacation homes that attract a global clientele of the most demanding luxury travellers. The Finest Holidays collection has been put together since the company’s founding in 2008, assembled with an expertise born from Katrin’s life-long personal passion for travel. Originally from Germany, Katrin’s personal itinerary has taken her from the Pacific Islands to the Caribbean; to every corner of Europe, and to Central and North America. She now lives in south-west Mallorca, in one of the Balearic Islands’ most renowned luxury holiday destinations. It was on the beautifully groomed slopes of Zürs and Oberlech that Katrin was introduced to Alpine winter sports. With characteristic determination she became an accomplished skier. Now she brings that focus - and deep knowledge of and passion for Alpine life - to matching her clients with the perfect luxury chalets and 5-star hotels to bring their holiday fantasies to life. That could mean a chalet with a helicopter pad and room for a big corporate group to party in Verbier. It could be a super-chic penthouse suite for a romantic escape. From the intimate to the grand, the traditional to the cutting edge; from the secluded hideaway to the place at the heart of the action, the common thread in the Finest Holidays portfolio is always extraordinary quality and world-class luxury. In Switzerland, France, and Austria, USA and Canada you’ll find the Finest Holidays collection in resorts where royals, oligarchs, The Epitome of Luxury and Hollywood stars ski and socialize. If you want the best ski accommodation - from St. Anton to Zermatt, Courchevel 1850 to Lech, Kitzbuhel to Megève - then Katrin and her dedicated team can help you find it. In an age where digital delivery is taking over, it’s Katrin’s personal expertise and experience - earned in more than 20 years in the luxury holiday business - that allows Finest Holidays to offer service and experiences that stand out: always personally tailored and discrete. Katrin’s clientele is as global as her carefully chosen collection of luxury chalets, unique villas, first-class hotels, private islands and luxury yachts. From the UK, Russia, Germany, Spain and Sweden, Latin and North America, Africa and Asia, discerning travellers come calling to Finest Holidays. In the summer, much of Katrin’s time is spent visiting the clients she places in the very best villas on Mallorca. But that personal service is there 365 days of the year. “We only work with highly trained people from the hotel business,” Katrin explains. “They help us to take care of our clients 24/7. We don’t just find accommodation, we design luxury holidays with a full concierge service. From the moment of booking, whatever a client requires we deliver - anything, at any time.” The Finest Holidays team expands in season, so nothing from a Michelin-starred dinner reservation to a balloon excursion is ever more than a call, text, or message away. | [email protected] Tel: +34 971 13 15 41 and +34 661 718 061 Jun19140 Chalet Les Anges, Zermatt Shemshak Lodge, Courchevel 1850 Chalet MB Experience, Megève Chalet Chouqui, Verbier
