SPAIN

• 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
