The Canillo region
Incredible mountain views in the wonderful Pyrenees. Valleys are glorious for summer walking, (do not miss Val d'incles). Fantastic, picturesque, and minutes from the apartment. Tax free shopping an obvious boom. Roads in the summer are great for Bikers and not too busy except through Encamp and Andorra La Vella. Located between France and Spain the mix of these two countries and their customs is intoxicating. Language, food, drink, shopping all contribute to make Andorra a fabulous place to holiday summer or winter.
In Canillo, 5 mins by car/bus or a picturesque footpath next to stable leads there, is a sports complex of which every Andorran is rightly proud. The Sports palace offers not only Olympic swimming pool, ice rink with Hockey, Discos and even Go Karting on ice. There is also a gym, outdoor tennis courts, Squash, Sauna, sun beds and a even a Pizza Express.
The next town is Encamp, here any car buffs will find the National Motor Museum showing cars from the Pinette 1885 to vehicles of the 1970's, one of Europe's largest collections of motoring heritage.
Continue on into Andorra La Vella (the capital) shop till you drop with a main street rammed with stylish fashion, electrical goods, perfumes, delicatessens etc. Remember, this country is duty free and here is a shoppers Mecca. Within 2 hours drive is Barcelona, Toulouse, Perpignan, of course Spanish and French shoppers alike come in there droves to take advantage of the savings to be made. After shopping, walking, skiing, boarding, biking or any one of the many activities you may partake, you must go to Caldea. In the heart of the capital a modern glass pyramid houses Caldea. A thermal leisure centre designed to provide all kinds of relaxation and fitness: hydro-massage, Jacuzzi, Hammam, Indian-Romanic baths, Saunas etc...
Soldeu is a small town. During winter it is very focussed on Skiing and Snowboarding. Recent ski lift additions add vast amounts of additional pistes and link into the Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig lift systems. Après ski is great but not too rowdy. OK to take kids. Skidoos can be hired, Dog sledging, Helicopter rides, Paragliding, Rattracking, Igloo building are just some of the activities. Ski school is excellent. Kindergarten facilities for non skiing and skiing children are superb. The available piste is 250 Kms, with 108 runs in total, 17 Green, 36 Blue, 34 Red and 21 Black. With 914 snow cannons you are virtually guaranteed snow throughout the season.
Summer fun is also assured. With lots of sunshine, hikers can get lift to top of mountain and walk down hill, surely the best way to walk. This also applies to mountain bikers whom can hire bikes at the top and cycle down some very extreme routes. The Huskys don't get the summer off either, at the top they are available to pull strange wheeled contraptions ("Mushing on Wheels").
At village level our apartment is across the road from a wonderful riding stables. Horse riding from your doorstep into the mountains and valleys.
Also next door to the apartment is The Piolets Park Spa Hotel. This provides all the entertainment you'd want with bars restaurants, entertainers and kids club. Additional facilities at Hotel is the swimming pool, outdoor jacuzzi, sauna steam room, gym, table tennis, internet etc..
Other side of the village is the new Sport Hotel's 5 star spa complex. This is real unadulterated luxury with what must be the finest spa facilities in Europe. Pool's, jacuzzis, warm stones, realaxation treatments etc. All this within a 400 yard stroll. Not cheap but great way to relax and unwind.

"Lovely stay - good snow, great food, even better bars!"
After narrowing down the options to choosing between Andorra and the more traditional ski area of the 'Three Valleys', I was delighted and equally surprised by all that Andorra has to offer. The slopes were relatively quiet, the snow was superb and the bars were lively and well priced.
The apartment was also fantastic. Well positioned with stunning views over the slopes, it was a real delight to be able to wake up to one of the best views in Soldeu. The Gondola is a very short walk away and the bars are equally close, but at the same time far enough away for any noise to not be an issue.
I would like to say a thanks to Garry for sorting out a few issues we had on arrival and making this a stay to remember.

"Super snow and super apartment"
A brilliant weeks skiing, excellent apartment with ample facilities. Within easy stroll to the Gondola and village pubs (and a easy stumble home!). The views of the slopes from the apartment were simply stunning.
Soldeu has exceeded all expectations with a superb range of slopes for all abilities and a brilliant ski school. Snow conditions for our week were the best we have seen.
Sun and snow in abundance!!
