Christmas Wonderland

We, a couple, would like to drive from the UK around the 20th December and return about the 6th January to stay in a comfortable hotel, all amenities and good food in a picture perfect location. We would say the Tyrol, Bavaria or the Dolomites. We gave up skiing some 10 years ago but like the mountain ambience, with a walk out of the hotel to a small scenic town atmosphere. Since we have a car we would like to tour around and visit places of interest.
Location, good hotel, food and places of intrest most important.
Your suggestions invited.

Bavaria would be an excellent place, given the many Christmas markets. You might also consider Vienna for a few days.

Can't help with suggestion for where to stay but if you are driving in Germany or Austria in winter make sure you have winter tyres on your car. They are required by law in both countries, and are required in parts of France ad Switzerland if the road signs indicate.
A set of chains, and the knowledge of how to use them may not be a bad thing to rent either.
