With the high season in Aspen in full swing, the area’s glorious mountains are no doubt calling to ski aficionados in need of a vacation. Even if you don’t ski there is a lot to see and do in luxurious Aspen, from great dining to shopping and spa activities, not to mention the après ski nightlife. Of course, an exclusive vacation wouldn’t be complete without the right kind of accommodation, and while Aspen boasts several great hotels nothing beats a luxury villa rental when it comes to comfort, exclusivity and privacy. If Aspen is your destination this winter, Villazzo boasts seven different luxury villa rentals to choose from including new additions VillaHotel Elisa and “V” Villa Silvia.

Aspen boasts a perfect mix of old and new, and much of the best the world has to offer. If you’re choosing Aspen for your winter break you’ll also want to book the right kind of accommodation and head to the places that make the resort town worth visiting. Après ski think about heading to local favorite Venga Venga Cantina and Tequila Bar, just one spot that draws the crowds after a day on the slopes. Of course, you can always opt for 39 Degrees at Sky, recently voted by Liftopia as one of the Top 5 Après Ski Spots in the World. Chef Shawn Lawrence serves up some of the best burgers in town while mixologist Denis Cote’s unique cocktails should be tried at least once, and they really are best sampled after a great day outdoors while surrounding a fireplace with family or friends.

Another option for some late night fun is Jimmy’s, an Aspen mainstay that was recently voted by Food and Wine Magazine as one of the Top 50 Bars in America. Why Jimmy’s? According to Food and Wine, the bar is a favorite because “surrounded by the Rocky Mountains this Aspen institution has more than 100 tequilas and mezcals, makes terrific margaritas and hosts legendary Saturday night Latin-dance parties.” Open since 1997, Jimmy’s is definitely one of those must visit spots during a stay in Aspen.

Of course, if you’re looking for a vacation that’s a little more low key your luxury villa rental offers the option of staying in and enjoying yourself in the lap of luxury and with the utmost privacy. Have a romantic dinner for two or host family and friends; with your luxury villa rental the options are really endless. Eating in or dining out, you can enjoy Aspen skiing, shopping or nightlife and then retreat to the privacy of your own luxury villa, where you can have five-star service that rivals any high end hotel. The six-bedroom VillaHotel Elisa, located 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Aspen on a deliciously private piece of land, is just one choice for your luxury Aspen vacation. If you want something a bit different think about the “V” Villa Sylvia, a gorgeous property that eschews the typical luxury lodge and cabin style for streamlined Asian-inspired lines that are every bit as exclusive as your Aspen ski vacation will be.
