A guest room at Val di Luce Spa Resort in Italy

Less than two hours from Florence (or 15 minutes by helicopter, if you prefer to make a grand entrance), Abetone ski resort dates back to the 1930s. It is located between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, and while it may be low-key, it offers a sophisticated retreat at the Val di Luce Spa Resort. Rustic and chic, this lodging surprises with its urbane décor and eye-catching glass pyramid, which houses the swimming pool — ideal for stargazing. The VDL Spa also boasts an alpine sauna, steam baths and indulgent massages. All of the guest rooms open onto balconies, and the gorgeous white-on-white dining room features Tuscan cuisine and a Champagne cellar. For skiers, there are more than 20 lifts, dozens of excellent runs, plenty of beginner slopes and multilingual ski schools.
