Picks of the month: winter wonders

Winter is finally here in Barcelona… and, as we are lucky to not be part of the Game of Thrones world, we have a lot to celebrate and enjoy in the snow season, even if it never snows here! Christmas is coming and also our wishes to meet our family members and have good excuses to forget about the diet and drink how many hot chocolates our bodies can take. Anyway, all this magic could be more fantastic if you are at a mountain chalet… all made of wood… where the kids can play freely in the snowed yard, and it has a good fireplace to warm your family and to receive a chubby Santa Claus.    

Everything in this image might seem too “cliché” for some people. In the other hand, the truth is: deep inside of our hearts we love “cliches”! Especially when they include eating without feeling guilty and spending an exclusive and funny time with the ones we love. To help you leave the grumpy daily work spirit behind, we separated the most incredible winter home wonders for you to take a look and, maybe, change your Christmas destination and run to the mountains!
