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.

Saturday, June 3, 2017 Good location

4 of 5
The house was in the perfect location for us as we wanted see all of the 3 main Cirques and Gedre stand at the end of the valleys to all three. We could also do good high level walking directly from the house. There are beautiful views down the valley from the front patio. The house is well equipped, but do not forget to take your own sheets, pillow cases and towels, as they are not provided. The house is stone built with very small windows, with the consequence that it is always dark and cold inside. We had to light the log burning stove in the evenings in June, even when the days were very hot. The owners were delightful and very helpful. They do not speak English, so it was a good job our understanding of French was pretty good. We enjoyed our stay very much and the evenings with the fire roaring and sitting under a blanket was very strange in June, but enjoyable and cosy.

Character house in a lovely part of the Pyrenees

4 of 5
A well renovated older style house with a pleasant terrace for sitting out, in a quiet hill top town. 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.
