Vielha is nine miles from Baqueira and is the principal town in the Val d’Aran. It has a substantial community with more than 4,000 permanent residents and offers all the facilities you would expect from a larger town. It is built around the junction of the river Garone and the river Nere.
There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants as well as large supermarkets and commercial outlets. The ice rink and swimming pool complex is also worth a visit.
Although not immediately obvious, there is an older part of the town with cobbled streets and architecture typical of the valley. Most of the tapas bars are in this area, offering great value for money. Bed and breakfast deals are a real option in Vielha, due to the amount of good quality restaurants at sensible prices.
We are proud to have our own hotel ‘Era Borda’ as one of the options with a shuttle bus to our office opposite the slopes.
We can offer a range of other accommodation through the resort agency, contact us for further details.
