Despite a recent revamp, this "groovy little ski-in, ski-out hideaway" in the French Alps has lost none of its hippie-ish charm, said Condé Nast Traveller (U.K.). Step inside the 1964 building and you'll find "trippy clashing colors of tangerine and purple" along with plenty of cow hides and egg chairs.

The exterior — with its shingled walls set at haphazard angles — is just as quirky. Because the Avoriaz resort is car-free, horse-drawn sleds and skis are the only way to get around. "Exploring it at night, all you hear is crunching and whooshing and the tinkle of sleigh bells."
