There are places that simply for their surroundings are worthwhile. Undoubtedly, La Plaça is one of them. And so much more.
Surrounded by nature and history, it has everything necessary for unforgettable days, either to rest on a day of snow on the nearby slopes or a day of adventure and nature in summer.
Moreover, the personal treatment from their members (completely familiar) and the exceptional cuisine of local produce, give it a special charm.
A place worth visiting, no doubt.
The Baños de Tredos is a small hotel-spa in the centre of a lovely valley from where one reaches the Ascent of the Montarto.
This little hotel is open year round, although if what you want is peace and quiet, the best thing is to go in the winter as due to the snow it is impossible to drive to it (only on rare occasions), thus one parks the car in Salardú which is the closest village. From there, the staff of the hotel takes you by snowmobile up to the place (which is fantastic) and once there one finds nothing, just the hotel, snow and nature; along with a small spa of thermal water which I recommend.
I spent a night with my partner in this wonderful hotel in Baqueira. This is a very peaceful five star hotel very well fitted out and which never gave the sensation of being an overwhelming vacation resort. The peacefulness of all its installations is outstanding, besides the nice treatment by the staff.
Of the hotel I would point out the impressive spa it has and the great cuisine. The spa and swimming pool are lovely and the hotel offers a great amount of massages and treatments. My partner received a massage while I enjoyed the pool and she was delighted.
As far as the cuisine is concerned, the restaurant was a pleasant surprise as their specialty is Sushi and they have a person there that is a specialist in this type of cuisine. Besides, from the hotel they can offer numerous activities. We chose a day on snow bikes and “mushing” (dog sledding).
In sum, two unforgettable days and a very complete hotel which can also be enjoyed during the summer even though it is located in a ski station.
Apartahotel La Vall Blanca
Thanks to an offer from a well-known discount page, I took advantage to make an escapade for three days to the Val d´Arán, staying in this precious and comfortable motel.
We were charmed from the very first moment, by the surroundings, next to the river, with spectacular views of the mountain. Modern, functional and very well fitted out. We had a loft styled apartment made of wood with a very homely touch.
The motel has all the advantages of a hotel but with the comforts of a loft. The area is well surveilled and has its own free parking. We are considering going back again because pricewise, it was well worth it.
Breakfast was included in the price and it doesn´t let you down one bit. Very polite service at all times at our beck and call, as we went with a two month old baby and they even fitted us out with a crib.
Ideal for couples, groups, friends and families, above all if you don´t want to spend too much and have a good rest.
This small house with Alpine flavor is tremendously comfortable, the rooms are spacious and decorated in wood and one can really relax here.
It has a large hall in the ground floor which is very comfortable for socializing and the hotel is located right in the middle of the Val D'Aran, so it is tremendously easy to move around the area if you are based here.
