If Christmas leaves you cold, swap the family bickering for fireside flickering with this collection of beautiful remote properties
November 2017: Looking to escape the commerciality of Christmas and its gaudy tinsel trimmings? The newly-launched OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS has the answer: a handpicked collection of remote and stylish properties in some of the most beautiful and isolated locations across the world. Sufficiently remote that only the most special of Christmas visitors will find you – and your chimney – on his annual festive rounds…
Life is luxuriously slow with OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS – a far cry from the frenzied festivities of Christmas at home. Spanning North and South America, Europe and Asia, OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS champions slow and sustainable travel in remote destinations. Be it country, mountain or sea, these undiscovered getaways offer an antidote to Yuletide mayhem – kayak uninhabited coastlines, hike in the hills, fish for your own supper, ride across farmland or simply lie back and enjoy the perfect solitude of a deserted beach. From reclaimed fishing huts in ecologically significant nature reserves to contemporary mountain cabins in vast national parks, OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS offers the ultimate silent night!
Chosen for their sustainable and low impact effect on the environment, each property’s aesthetics also reflect the desire to showcase high impact design and outstanding architecture. Luckily ‘going green’ doesn’t mean ditching the creature comforts: from Egyptian cotton bed linen and coffee machines to beauty therapists, swimming pools, kayaks, bikes and horses to rent, OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS redefines the concept of luxury. Fewer possessions, more experiences – an opportunity to strip away the noise, reconnect with nature and have fun with friends and family. The true spirit of Christmas.
Co-founders Sina Murphy Chan and Flavia Kämpf Spahr comment: “Christmas is not only the time of year when we give to others, but also a time for peace and rest. Our hideaways offer the perfect setting for this.”
