In Valle d’Aosta, Italy, they initially open the winter sports season. And you can be there! Provided you are fast and fortunate. Do you have both? Then you might book a unique Airbnb.
One where on Saturday, November 27, 2021, you take the ski lift up an hour earlier than the rest to be the first to put your signature on the freshly prepared slopes of the ski area.
In addition, you can sleep for one night in the highest Airbnb in Europe. Airbnb is not just located in a place in the mountains. We are talking about 3500 meters altitude on the southern slopes of Mont Blanc.
This getaway is called Suite Skyway Monte Bianco, and it is housed in Punta Helbronner, Europe’s highest funicular station. Need we say more? Make sure to be there on November 23 at 10:00 AM when the chickens are there. That is the moment that Airbnb goes into a rental.
Room with a view 2.0
The room itself is specially decorated for this occasion. You can expect a plush bed with warm blankets and soft pillows. And, of course, a breathtaking view of the Mont Blanc massif from the considerable room window that extends from floor to ceiling.
A simple bathroom with a sink and toilet on the ground floor. You read that right: there is no shower. It is of course just a gondola station, with no hotel facilities. There is also a heating system, but it considers outside temperatures of -5°C and -15°C. A little extra thermal underwear might not hurt.
The Ultimate Overnight Stay
Are you also longing to stand on the long slats or your board again? Then this promotion is the ultimate sleepover for you. It will cost you 190 euros for a night, but you also have something.
The stay includes a ride on the cable car of Mont Blanc Courmayeur, one hour before the official opening of the ski season. So you get the exclusive opportunity to ski down the slopes of Mont Blanc before the season officially starts.
You will also receive a return ticket for the SkyWay Monte Bianco cable car, a special dinner at Tavolo dell’infinitoat, the Punta Helbronner cable car station and breakfast the following day. But above all, a stay in a specially designed pop-up room in the funicular station Punta Helbronner with a panoramic view of Mont Blanc.
