Ever since its first recording by Bing Crosby in 1943, the song “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” has become a Christmas standard. Crosby’s swooning vocals and melancholic lyrics struck a chord with World War II soldiers yearning to be home for the holidays, and the song’s underlying theme about the importance of family resonated with the rest of the world, making it an inescapable Christmas classic.
Quickly becoming a Christmas classic in its own right, the Villa Roma Resort and Conference Center, located in the heart of New York’s snowcovered Catskills, understands the song’s message of family time at Christmas time. And, with a fantastic offering of December Christmas packages and a bevy of family-friendly activities, there really is no better place to bring the family together during the holidays.
“Villa Roma is the perfect holiday getaway,” resort Vice President Paul Carlucci said. “There’s something to do for the entire family, from grandma to toddlers.”
December guests of this Catskills staple will love the Villa Roma Ski Area, a winter wonderland filled with ice skating, downhill skiing, and tubing, not to mention rental equipment and a ski school for beginners. And for family members who prefer to stay indoors, the resort offers everything from luxurious spa services, unique onsite shopping, and an indoor sports complex to a game room with a video arcade, fun-filled supervised activities just for the kids, and exclusive holiday events.
However, Villa Roma’s real gift to its guests comes in the form of a package- vacation packages that is, running December 22 through December 29. Even though these packages may not come wrapped in shiny bows, they do include two meals per day and nightly entertainment and music that’s sure to have you rockin’ around the Christmas tree.
And, with rates starting at $129 per night, per adult, Carlucci says one of the best aspects of these yuletide packages is their affordability. The first child in your family under the age of 10 even stays free on all reservations of three nights or more.
The Christmas memories you’ll make with your family, however, come free, and are sure to leave you wanting to make Villa Roma Resort and Conference Center your permanent home for the holidays.
