Cartagena, Colombia

It is hard to contain our excitement for Cartagena in Colombia. The old walled quarter is a colonial gem overlooking the balmy Caribbean, brimming with color and atmosphere. Think shady plazas, delightful restaurants and boutique hotels, churches and ruined forts, which hark back to the era when pirates ruled the seas. From Cartagena fly to Miami, for lazy days on South Beach followed by late nights making the most of the city's vibrant scene.

Private houses and ski apartments

We have a number of beautiful apartments in Courchevel 1850 and Zermatt and a stunning chalet in Courchevel Le Praz that come without the full Scott Dunn chalet service. It is a fantastic, independent alternative to a staffed chalet, which will suit guests who want to eat out or who prefer more privacy on vacation. Nonetheless, Scott Dunn's resort team is only a phone call away and can stock the fridge, book restaurants for lunch, or advise you on the best runs.
