High season in Aspen is moving into full swing, which means the arrival of well-heeled travelers from far and wide who are not only looking to hit the slopes, but to have some fun après ski as well. If you’ve booked a luxury villa rental in Aspen this season–or are thinking of doing so–you’ll likely want to think about where to eat and what to do when you’re not enjoying the great outdoors.
The 2010/2011 season has seen some interesting additions to the Aspen restaurant scene, in addition to the tried and true classics that every traveller to this ski heaven should try at least once.
Casa Tua Aspen
If you’ve been to Miami, you’ve likely sampled the wares at Casa Tua’s outpost in that city, which is set up in a gorgeous Mediterranean-style house, circa 1925, that is also home to a member’s only club on the upper level. Aspen’s Casa Tua has opened up in the space that once belonged to Ruth’s Chris and Guido’s, and is a sprawling 5,000 square foot, two-story mix of elegant and Aspen rustic.
The menu has definitely taken a page from the Miami original, and chef Sergio Sigalai’s kitchen will be serving food all day. Some delicious dishes you may want to sample include homemade pastas like Tagliolini with crème fraiche and caviar, a whole Branzino that is deboned at your table, and yummy Wagyu steaks served grilled. Mickey Grendene’s club and eatery will definitely be catering to the after hours crowd as well; if you’re interested in a membership the set up is similar to the Caribou Club, with a choice between short and long term options. 447 East Cooper Avenue, 970-920-7277.

Villazzo Makes a Splash in 2010 with “V” Villas, New VillaHotels & New Destinations
Looking back at 2010, Villazzo made a big hit by expanding its list of “V” Villas and VillaHotels in all of our luxury destinations. Because our team of luxury travel experts regularly visit destinations like Miami, and Saint-Tropez, we’ve been able to add a full roster of “V” Villas in all our vacation destinations. 2010 also saw the opening on our new office in Aspen. If you haven’t already familiarized yourself with our “V” Villas, new VillaHotels, and the Aspen vacation destination, please be sure to visit Villazzo.com to see what we have to offer.
2011 will see the addition of many new luxury villa rental properties in all of Villazzo’s exclusive resort destinations. We are very excited to announce that preparations are underway to launch a selection of new “V” Villas in Ibiza, which will be available for rental sometime in early January 2011. Be sure to check back at Villazzo.com for new additions to our Ibiza destination.
Also, now that the summer is over, Saint-Tropez has now returned back to being the sleepy little seaside village that endeared it to luxury travellers some 40 years ago. And although Saint-Tropez remains inactive during the winter months, preparations are already underway to make the 2011 summer season there spectacular.
Since booking luxury villas will begin in earnest at the start of 2011, now is the time to reserve your spot in Saint-Tropez.
