I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other. -Pete Seeger
We love our village of Cervinia, Italy. It has been our home for six exhilarating months of high alpine adventures. Every day, as we walk to the village for groceries, work, and doctor visits, we pass Club Med Cervinia. Because travel is our way of life, not one long vacation, we often find our kids gazing across the street as Club Med customers return to the resort for après–ski.
Understandably, platters of food and drinks waiting, with dancing yetis and beautiful people lounging in the sun, looks inviting. We decided it was time for a vacation from our deliberate life. Club Med piqued our curiosity, as we have been on the outside looking in for months, until now.
Club Med anticipated our every need and even thought of some things we never knew we needed but really enjoyed…
Food and drinks available around every corner so that the kids never utter the words, “I am hungry.”
A little taste of American cuisine to bring us home for a moment.
You had me at all-you-can-drink cappuccinos.
Full ski-pro shop on-site and wonderful Italian instructors who swept our kids off their feet.
Friends from corners of the globe we have not yet visited like New Caledonia and Mauritius that have reignited our wanderlust. There is a party every night for all ages.
Wellness facilities to renew after a long day on the slopes.
After our Club Med experience, we realized it wasn’t a break from our deliberate life but a different expression of deliberate living. It was a deliberate break and that is something we all need. Thank you, Club Med, for inviting us to your village within this village. Being on the inside looking out gave us a whole new perspective. That shift in perspective is the reason we keep traveling. Whether we go across the street or over the equator, it never gets old to see things in a different light.
