editor’s letter… q&a with francis ford coppola

This month, on stage in our New York office, I interviewed the amazing Francis Ford Coppola – director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, but also a real life force and embracer of all its delights. He owns vineyards and cannabis businesses, runs a literary magazine guest designed by people such as David Lynch, and is behind a portfolio of hotels in Belize and Guatemala – as well as Palazzo Margherita in Italy – known for local engagement, sustainability and being gorgeous. Eighty years old, sharp as a tack and fasting on the day I met him, he is also the most vibrant and uplifting of tonics. Here’s a taste of our conversation. MS: ‘I spent the weekend, not exploring the streets of New York but rewatching many of your movies.…

SOPHIE DAHL Globetrotter, p120 ‘Every year I feel compelled to remove myself from the dourness of January in the UK. My most successful escapes have been to Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. Not only is it on a private island, but it’s self-sustaining, producing its own drinking water and using a waste-composting system.’ Sophie is a model-turned-author THOMASINA MIERS Country pubs, p126 ‘I recently stayed at Fustic House on Barbados, a former sugar plantation that was revamped by the artist and set designer Oliver Messel in the 1960s and 1970s. Every archway and view of the sea seemed to be framed by creepers, plants and turquoise shutters.’ Thomasina is a chef, restaurateur and TV presenter KELSEY MERRITT The Philippines, p76 ‘Last winter, I headed to Costa Rica with 15 friends. We spent time at the…

the stays

December sees two splashy but very different openings in increasingly smart Val d’Isère: the 41-room Mademoiselle, designed with medieval maximalism and a 12,917-square-foot spa by the same group behind the Grimm-grandiose Les Airelles Courchevel; and the rough wood-and-stone Le Refuge de Solaise, now France’s highest hotel, with 34 rooms in a retired cable-car station elevated at around 8,370ft. Across the Vanoise National Park in Méribel, Le Coucou is a whimsical first Alpine foray from Maison Pariente, also responsible for St Tropez’s sun-bleached Hôtel Lou Pinet. Paris-New York interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch has fused mid-century style and Savoyard kitsch in the 55 pattern-carpeted rooms and the spa, where a statement pool is surrounded by white archways and teal coves. A similar playfulness can be spied through the portholes of the new…

the trends

Val Thorens in the French Alps is now home to cute Berto, the ski world’s first driverless shuttle bus, which offers a free hop-on service around Europe’s highest resort. The 15-passenger vehicle runs on electricity, fitting for a season that’s all about post-Greta Thunberg environmentalism. Ski areas are looking for fresh ways to be eco-friendly – adrenalin-fuelled Laax in Switzerland is aiming to be the world’s greenest resort, with a zero-waste policy and using 100 per cent renewable energy, a scheme also followed by little Finnish retreat Pyhä and the linked Savoyard district of Les Sybelles. Low-impact tours will continue to grow in popularity, including ski-and-sail trips, with Kraken Travel’s boat rides through Norway’s Lofoten archipelago and the Lyngen Alps set to be in high demand. Cat-skiing, that great Canadian…

the hotspots

Serious freeriders have long kept quiet about the Monterosa expanse in Italy’s Aosta Valley, with its swathes of steep, virgin off-piste terrain and arguably the best heli-skiing in the Alps. But a light has been shone on its low-key hub of Champoluc by the opening of CampZero adventure resort, with its ice-climbing walls, where the on-site helipad is just about offset by a vegetable garden and Tesla charging stations. For a more classic stay, few areas have remained as true to themselves as Austria’s Lech, a postcard-pretty place where most of the key hotels are owned by hard-skiing local families and the ‘Resort full’ sign is legendary. Take the Arlberg, helmed by the Schneider clan for 63 years and renovated this season, with slick rooms and a new spa floor…
