• Tucked away between Val d’aran and Valls d’aneau in Catalonia near the Pyrenees border of Spain and France is Baqueira Beret, a ski resort with a skiable area of 2,166 hectares divided into three regions: Bonaigua, Baquiera, and Beret. The entire resort has 152 kilometres of marked runs, five kilometres off-piste routes, and a seven-kilometre Nordic skiing circuit. With more blue, red, and black runs than green, Baqueira Beret is more suited for intermediate to daring skiers. Bonaigua is where daredevils rejoice with the highest number of black runs; Baqueira is known for its descent routes and its famous off-piste Escornacabres route; while Beret is full of gentle slopes and beginner trails.
Enjoy a 5-star respite at Hotel Val de Neu. Its posh and plush rooms provide breath-taking views of the mountains. It has an exclusive Sisley VIP Spa Treatment, the only Sisley Spa in Spain. Don’t be surprised with some Royal sightings. Baqueira Beret is the ski destination of choice for King Juan Carlos, who also has a lavish holiday home here. Some members of the Spanish royal family also whoosh down its slopes. www.hotelbaqueiravaldeneu.com
