Eat

The tast­ing menus at warm and wel­com­ing Casa Irene of­fers culi­nary tours of the re­gion. The restau­rant’s small but sump­tu­ous se­lec­tion changes with the sea­sons. Past favourites have in­cluded roast pi­geon with cream of ar­ti­chokes and baked tur­bot with win­ter veg­eta­bles. Try the home­made wal­nut liqueur as a di­ges­tif. It’s best to make a book­ing. hotel­ca­sairene.com

Stay

Lo­ca­tion is every­thing when it comes to ski ac­com­mo­da­tion, and you’ll find the cool and con­tem­po­rary (yet cosy) fives­tar Ho­tel Val de Neu just 45 me­tres from the ski lift. Book the Neo Royal suite for amaz­ing moun­tain views and free-flow­ing hot choco­late and chur­ros. Af­ter a tough day on the slopes, re­lax in the frothy out­door jacuzzi, take a swim in the pool or slip into your fluffy robe and head to the spa. Cheese con­nois­seurs will love La Fon­due restau­rant. The main lounge has sprawl­ing so­fas in front of crackling log fires.

For­get gluh­wein. The well-heeled Spa­niards at Baque­ira Beret pre­fer their après-ski beverages cold, sparkling and served in flutes. And where bet­ter to im­bibe bub­bles than the hip and hap­pen­ing Moët Win­ter Lounge. baque­ira.es
