Rio Hermoso

Rio Hermoso – San Martin De Los Andes, Argentina
Hidden away in a Patagonian playground of fir-studded mountains and bottle-blue lakes, this luxury lodge is all tactile wood, enormous beds, and striking tribal artefacts. Refined as they may be, interiors are no match for the startling vistas outside. The picturesque river is the star of the show: grab some blankets, curl up with a super-sized glass of wine, and spend long languid hours listening to its snow-swollen roar.

Smith extra: A bottle of Patagonian red.

Portetta

Portetta Courchevel, France
Decked out with timber beams, hand-knitted cushions, and inviting armchairs, this Courchevel bolthole is all about après-ski comfort. Pretty as a gingerbread house, this luxurious chalet is just steps from the piste. Epicurean delights aren’t forgotten here: chill out in the blue-tiled hammam, sip vin chaud by the fire, and feast on fondue and tartiflette to replace all the calories you’ve burnt on the slopes.

Smith extra: A bottle of Savoie wine.
