So we’re officially in “Chrimbo Limbo” as my friends like to call it. We’re kind of done with all the excessive eating of Christmas, wishing we hadn’t quite had that last mince pie, and looking forward to the freshness of the New Year to come with all its possibilities… but we’re not really sure what to do with the time in-between. Next up on the horizon, before the New Year resolutions kick in, it’s this time of year that I’m thinking about New Year’s Eve. Back in the day (way back!) it was all about being at the best party, the best club, and huge FOMO. There was such a pressure to be ‘doing something’ but these days, all we feel like doing is escaping with our nearest and dearest! I’ve been looking at Portopiccolo as somewhere I put on my bucket list of places to visit and then spotted that they have gone all festive for the season and are hosting a sparkling looking New Year’s Eve!
The resort has been open for about a year and is built into the site of an old quarry with amazing views of the sea from almost everywhere it seems. It’s really easy to get to also as it’s only around 15 minutes from Trieste, which is also somewhere I’d love to visit. The luxury Starwood Hotel (I’m sure I have a loyalty card for Starwood Hotels kicking about somewhere) at its heart is called the Falisia and the new year package includes accommodation with buffet breakfast, welcome Drink plus New Year’s Eve gala dinner and after party with live DJ!
The venue for the party itself has spectacular looking views to the sea…I can’t think of anything better to be looking at as that clock strikes midnight! There’s a mouth-watering menu paired with incredible wines from the local area put together by Executive Chef Roberto Dal Seno. The price isn’t bad at all as the packages start at €409 per night for a double room inclusive of the New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner.
Now all I need to do is check flight availability and persuade the family, and get shopping for a dress!
