Accommodation in Baqueira Beret

There is no accommodation at Beret or Bonaigua, so you either stay in the resort of Baqueira or in one of the lower villages. Baqueira 1500 and Baqueira 1700 both offer a good selection of hotels and there is cheaper accommodation nearby in Val d’Aran villages if you have a car.

Where to stay in Baqueira Beret

Baqueira 1500 and Baqueira 1700

The main Baqueira village is Baqueira 1500. This includes the original ski station and the newer suburb of Ruda. The Baqueira bubble lift stops at both and it’s easy to walk between them, so it does not matter much which part of 1500 you stay in.

Baqueira 1700 is a long walk (or a short car/taxi journey) up the mountain from Baqueira 1500, so it’s effectively a separate village. The main part of it is Tanau which has its lift, Esquiros. Below Tanau is the Royal Pleta – the exclusive suburb where the King of Spain stays.

Overall Baqueira 1700 is slightly more attractive with better views and fewer bars and restaurants than 1500, but they are both typical purpose-built, high-altitude resorts that prioritise convenience over charm.

Val d’Aran Villages

There is no shortage of charm, however, in the 30 or so Val d’Aran villages that stretch from Baqueira to the French border. They vary hugely in size, but most have strict building controls, so although there are modern developments they tend to blend in seamlessly with the old stone and slate houses.

At the heart of many of the villages is a Romanesque church dating back to the Middle Ages. Arties, about 15 to 20 minutes’ drive from the Baqueira lifts, is probably the most scenic, with stunning mountain views in all directions, a pretty church (inside and outside), atmospheric bridges crossing the river Garonne and 30 bars and restaurants tucked away in its narrow streets, including some very good ones like the Tauèrna Urtau tapas bar and restaurant (tel:+34 973640926).

Val d’Aneu

On the other side of the ski resort beyond Bonaigua is the Val d’Aneu, where there are more Pyrenean mountain villages. These are similar to the Val d’Aran villages but tend to be less developed, except for the ones closest to the resort.

Accommodation in Baqueira Beret

Hotels in Baqueira tend to be less expensive than in the major Alpine ski resorts, so you can often go up one star for the same price.
