The reigning majority of Andorra’s ski lodgings come in the form of hotels and apartments, and thanks to lots of recent investment, many of these are contemporary, comfortable and some super fancy. But if a catered chalet’s what the heart wants, as always Andorra is only too glad to serve.
Taking care of breakfasts, afternoon teas and suppers on six days (with a day spare to explore the local restaurants), these take the legwork out of your week away – whether you’re mucking in with other guests or having the whole chalet to yourselves.
The chalets here tend to be fairly middle of the line – not basic by a long way, but not necessarily swimming in pools and spas either. For real luxury skiing, the four and five star hotels are your best bet, where hot tubs, pools, saunas and beauty treatments can almost always be found moments from your bedroom. The good news is that luxury ski holidays here don’t cost mountains – usually you can bag high-end accommodation for almost half the price you’d spend elsewhere.
Having slopes and ski lifts seconds from your door makes the week a whole lot easier, especially when paired with chalet catering. In Andorra, ski-in-and-out convenience is more commonly found in the bigger hotels. So, when you stumble across a chalet with doorstep skiing, it’s well worth staking your claim before anyone else does. Usually you’ll find chalets a few minutes’ walk of the ski lifts and resort centre.
