EXCEPTIONAL AUTUMNAL RETREATS, WITH FLEXJET
September 9, 2022
Autumn is a wonderful time of year for travel, with mild temperatures, fewer crowds and colourful landscapes opening up a wealth of possibilities.
Whether it’s to soak up some pre-winter sunshine or indulge in a gastronomic getaway, discover our suggestions for a memorable seasonal escape.
Piedmont, Italy</h4 >
Surrounded by rolling hills and spectacular countryside, the Piedmont region of Italy offers a full immersion in nature, with well-defined seasons. Given its reputation for excellent wine, the Slow Food movement and bountiful produce – including its world-famous white truffles – harvest time is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a visit.
Flexjet partner hotel Nordelaia takes all the region’s rustic elegance and layers on exceptional modern design and decadent amenities, adding up to a spectacular boutique bolthole. Set on a working winery and newly opened after a meticulous renovation, there are numerous opportunities to enjoy the region’s highlights both outside and in, including at the hotel’s restaurant, overseen by Michelin-starred chef Andrea Ribaldone.
The major airport for the Piedmont region is Turin Airport (LIMF), but Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport (LIMJ) offers another convenient gateway to the south.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands</h4 >
Rich in history, art and architecture, Amsterdam offers all the ingredients for a perfect autumn city escape. World-class galleries and museums provide days of indoor diversion, and a wealth of beautiful buildings, canals and gardens mean there’s no shortage of outdoor treasures to discover either, whether on foot or by bike. Amsterdam’s diverse and inventive spirit also extends to its dining opportunities, with over 20 Michelin-star restaurants.
Flexjet Owners can enjoy an extra-special stay at one of the city’s top hotels, The Dylan, courtesy of our exclusive partnership. Located on the Keizersgracht canal in a unique historic building (once the first theatre in Amsterdam), this warm and welcoming 5-star retreat is a masterclass in design, reflecting the city’s dialogue between past and present and providing every imaginable comfort for the discerning traveller.
Flexjet Owners fly in and out via Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (EHAM), which is just 9km to the southwest of the city and offers 24-hour facilities for private aviation passengers and crew.
Doha, Qatar</h4 >
For an autumn break further afield, Qatar offers a sumptuous escape with a unique blend of traditional culture and modern opulence. The capital Doha stretches around a spectacular, turquoise circular bay, and the desert beyond offers both a striking scenic contrast and the opportunity for adventure, with comfortable autumn temperatures typically in the late twenties.
The small Gulf state will have the eyes of the world on it from mid-November to mid-December, as it plays host to the FIFA World Cup 2022. The resulting investment in tourism includes a soaring fine dining scene and several top name hotel and resort openings. One to watch is The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort in Doha, stunningly located along the beachfront and sister hotel to Flexjet partner The Chedi Muscat in Oman.
With our first Gulfstream G650 now permanently based in Europe and our super-midsize Praetor 600 fleet offering category-leading range, Flexjet’s European fleet is perfectly placed to fly between Europe and the Middle East. Our Owners can fly into Qatar via Hamad International Airport (OTHH) or Doha International Airport (OTBD). Note there are requirements in place during the FIFA World Cup period (starting from the beginning of November), which limit entry to the country to those attending the tournament.
