Haute Cashmere Blankets for the Luxury Traveler!

If you’re thinking that airline fees are getting to be ridiculous—you’re not alone. Just when you thought that there’s nothing left to tack a fee onto… think again. Some airlines are now charging for those cheap little blankets they give you to stay warm.

But one French resort in the South of France is handing out cashmere blankets for those booking three nights at The French Riviera’s La Villa Mauresque in St. Raphael, France. That’s right you could be wrapped in luxurious cashmere as you jet off to the French Riviera also known as the Côte d'Azur.

Vacationers staying at the 19th century Mediterranean seafront luxury hotel will receive a sumptuous cashmere and wool blanket, shipped directly to their home doorstep before they leave. The complimentary offer is available for guests booking a minimum stay of three nights, prepaying for one night in advance, for arrivals now through October, 2010. To allow time for blanket delivery, prepayment is required three weeks before arrival. Keep in mind the blankets are shipped only to US addresses.
