Make a holiday apartment in Broto your home away from home

For world-class winter sport and unspoiled mountain landscapes, Broto holiday apartments are ideal. Whether you’re here for adrenaline-pumping action or simply to see the soaring peaks, canyons and waterfalls close by, holiday homes in Broto will provide a charming and suitably rustic base. They are in a handsome traditional style, often capable of accommodating large parties of ten or more, and many date back several centuries. The views are astounding too, ensuring you’ll return from your break at an apartment in Broto feeling perfectly refreshed.

Things to do

-Winter sport. There are several ski resorts within a fairly short drive of Broto – among the closest are Cerler, Formigal and Astun. Panticosa-Los Lagos is 35 kilometres away, and set in the upper Tena Valley. It has more than 30 kilometres of marked pistes, with slopes that are generally weighted towards novice and intermediate skiers. There’s a modern lift system here, as well as comprehensive facilities that include a “snow garden” for children.

-Adventure tourism. Summer means fun-packed sports like rafting, kayaking, canyoning, climbing, mountain biking and hiking. No fewer than 30 hiking routes are accessible from the town, all providing unforgettable views of mountain scenery. Seasoned mountaineers can scale local peaks, while casual walkers can visit beautiful Romanesque hermitages.

-Natural scenery. Broto is on the boundary of the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, which is part of a UNESCO Biosphere reserve. When it comes to landscapes, the highlights are the four spectacular canyons. Most accessible are the Ordesa Valley and Anisclo Canyon, which have a depth of more than a kilometre. There are also walkable karst ledges, called “fajas”, which afford inspiring panoramas for those who can handle heights.

-Jaca. This city is to the southwest and offers much for historical enthusiasts to discover. The citadel here is from the 1500s and one of the few in Spain to be left intact. Features like the bastion and moat have hardly been altered in half a millennium. The cathedral was the first major Romanesque building in Aragon, and also features some 17th Century Baroque additions.

-Gastronomy. In this upland area lamb has long played an important part in local food culture. The classic preparation is to roast it on a spit with nothing more complicated than salt and garlic. Freshwater fish such as trout is also popular, and often grilled. Migas is another rustic staple, that involves the crumbs of leftover bread simmered with olive oil, bacon, paprika, onion and cured sausage.

Weather in Broto

Broto is in an inland mountainous region, so the climate here has both continental and upland characteristics. In essence it means a wide gap between summer highs, which tend to be warm, and winter lows, which are usually cold, with lots of snow. On a summer trip to a holiday rental in Broto you’ll enjoy sunny weather, with temperatures in the mid-20s. Spring and autumn weather is milder and damper, while the winter season lasts from December to April and involves regular snowfall.

Travel to Broto

Broto is about the same distance from several international airports. Lleid-Alguaire (ILD) in Catalonia, Zaragoza (ZAZ) and Pau (PUF) are all more or less two hours away by car and all served by flights from cities in the UK. Perhaps the most convenient route to a holiday apartment in Broto is from Zaragoza to the south, as the terrain is a little less hilly and you can simply join the A-23 and follow it for the whole journey. In terms of pure distance, Pau is closest, across the border in France, but the trip would entail crossing the Pyrenees.

Very clean and spacious with all amenities that you would need. Parking is below the apartment in a secure garage. Stunning view from the front of the property to the mountains opposite. Lydia, the owner, had sent directions and phone number, we found it quite easily, we had driven from Bilbao Airport, approx. 3 1/2 hour drive. Lydia met us at the apartment and showed us around and how to use the equipment and also where the local shops/bars were. We stayed at the property for 10 days and it felt like home, we had used it as a base for hiking, of which there are plenty of trails in the local area. We found the locals to be extremely friendly and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we would recommend the property to anyone wanting to stay in the area

Several popular river swimming spots are nearby and canyonning and white water rafting are available. The house is also ideally located to reach all points of the Ordesa National Park, with superb walks and views.
