Make a holiday apartment in Valle de Arán your home away from home

Holiday homes in Valle de Arán are the ideal retreat for blissful relaxation, but also invigorating outdoor activities. After all, apartments in Valle de Arán are set in a valley high in the Pyrenees, surrounded by steep slopes that are waiting to be explored by foot, bike or even car. In winter there’s a superb choice of snow sports available as the Baqueira-Beret ski station is just moments away. For the rest of the year, visitors head for holiday homes in Valle de Arán to take part in a wealth of outdoor sports, from rafting to mountain biking. Rustic in style and beautifully presented, accommodation here has all the amenities to ensure comfortable evenings after days packed with activities—and the views are simply stunning.  

Things to do

-Winter sports: The ski station at Baqueira-Beret has a fine choice of piste, suiting everyone from complete beginners to expert skiers. The school here also offers multilingual tuition and there are plenty of places to purchase and hire equipment throughout the valley. The range of activities available in winter is extensive, with alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobile trips and even specially arranged heli-skiing adventures available.

-Hiking: When the snow thaws, an awe-inspiring landscape is revealed, full of wildlife and with accessible by trails fit for casual walkers or intrepid adventure enthusiasts. Rough and ready types can test themselves on the Carros de Foc circular course, which is 55 kilometres in length, passing through the magnificent Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici Lake National Park, where hikers often spend the night.

-Sightseeing: Another way to enjoy the arresting natural scenery is to jump in the car and follow a designated route. There are five options from the valley, including the Route Bosque de Baricauba, which wends its way through atmospheric woodland. There’s also an unforgettable drive between Còth Deth Portilhon and Còth de Baretja on the border in France.  

-Outdoor fun: A mountain of activities can be enjoyed in the summer months. There are less strenuous pursuits like archery, horse trekking, wildlife watching, fishing, canoeing and pitch & putt, alongside adrenaline-pumping activities such as climbing, mountain biking, canyoning and rafting. The Valle de Arán has also been visited since Roman times for its therapeutic natural springs, with day spas ideal for a bit of pampering after a week of active tourism.  

-Eat and drink: The traditional local cuisine is satisfying and hearty, featuring dishes like wild boar stew, prepared in a special clay casserole dish. Local products include a variety of fruits and berries, garden vegetables like cabbage, and natural honey. In Tarrau there’s a dairy where visitors will be able to see Aranese cheese being made and get to know a process that dates back several hundred years.  

Weather in Valle de Arán

Valle de Arán holiday apartments are high in the Pyrenees, which means annual conditions can be broken down into two seasons. From May to October the weather is warm and often sunny. Even as late as October it’s quite normal for temperatures to peak at around 23°C by day. As winter arrives temperatures drop sharply, and snow covers much of the region. In December daily highs in Vielha e Mijaran are in the single figures and drop below zero at night.

Travel to Valle de Arán

For those reaching holiday rentals in Valle de Arán by plane there’s an array of airports on both sides of the border. In Spain the closest is Lleida-Alguaire (ILD), which sits within two hours to the south and has a few links to the UK with low-cost carriers. On the French side there’s Tarbes (LDE) and Pau (PUF), both of which handle budget flights from the UK, and also lie about two hours from the Valle de Arán area. It’s a little trickier by public transport, with no direct train, but the bus company ALSA does offer daily services to and from Barcelona.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Great spot. This condo is great. It has a very well appointed kitchen with more or less everything you need. It is quite large and very comfortably. It is well located, a 2 minute walk to the main street and a 15 minute drive to the ski area. The apartment was spotless when we arrived. The included parking space is large enough for a nine passenger van (specifically an Opel Vivaro). It is tight fit, but quite doable. Any normal car should be no problem. Would definitely stay here again.
