About this location
The Canillo Parish region
Soldeu is an enchanting village that captures many visitors seeing them returning year after year on holiday, to work and some cases set up home.
Soldeu is a perfect example of a village that has developed tourism whilst keeping strong the farming roots of the community and the mountain village atmosphere.
Several families share the village and you will see the evidence of this still today.
The Calbo, Font, Bonell,Naudi,Peretol and Maistre Familes have all contributed greatly to the development of the village and its Ski Area.
Soldeu was the second resort in the Principality of Andorra was also born of an initiative by skiing enthusiasts. Miquel Baró, Josep Torrallardona i Martí Salvans opened the first chairlift at the foot of the village of Soldeu in the area called Espiolets. It was February 1964 and the ski euphoria was spreading fast in all sectors. And so in the winter of 1981 the resort was extended to include the area called El Tarter and took the name Soldeu-El Tarter. Artificial snow cannons reach the resort in the winter of 1987 this was just shortly behind Pas de La Casa who introduced the 1st snow cannons to the country in 1986.
Soldeu El Tarter did lead Andorra and the entire Pyrenees in lift technology. In 2000 the regions first 8 seater high speed gondola lift was opened to transport skiers to the top of the mountain in greater comfort and speed.
Soldeu comes alive in the winter months as a skiing town. The skiing is part of the 193km GRANDVALIRA ski area, the largest area in the Pyrenees
The village is at 1710 metres and the top of the ski area is at 2580 metres. The gondola from the village rises to 2250 metres where the ski and board schools as well as restaurants are located.
The Soldeu El Tarter Ski/Board School is one of the largest English speaking schools in Europe. Over 450 instructors, many of which are native English speakers offer the highest and most proficient level of teaching from absolute beginner to advanced and freestyle. They are the winners of several top European awards for their high standards and excellent reputation. Whatever your level of skiing or boarding, their will be a course or class to suit you.
In the village of Soldeu there is something to suit all types and tastes.
The Sport Complex at the top end of Soldeu now offers you 4 Star quality in the Port and Sport Village and the new addition of the 5* Hermitage Hotel which really is a touch of class. The Wellness Centre (open 2006/07) is a real must for any visitor to the village to soak away the aches and pains of their week.
Soldeu also offers all levels of hotel and self catering apartment accommodation. The majority of accommodation is offered by the package tour operators but you can now find deals on line and make your own way.
Apres Ski time is a great time of the day in Soldeu. The local bars and hotels often offer live music, video shows of the days skiing and entertainment for those in need of a refreshment after a day on the mountain.
The bars of Soldeu are all very friendly places with English speaking staff that welcome new visitors and returning visitors back year after year.
Such is the friendly style of Soldeu, you are most likely to find your instructor or tour operator representative at this time of day and always more than happy to chat about the day on the mountain.
The Apres ski time buzz is superb in the village and this is just the warm up for the night life of Soldeu. Soldeu at night can be as lively or as peaceful as you want it be with bars closing around 2am.

"Superb apartment, great value, great location"
Font apartments were great. We had an apartment on the very top floor over looking the mountains. The view was tremendous and the balcony was great for chilling with a beer after a long day on the slopes. The apartment itself was spacious, clean and well equipped. It also had ski lockers on the ground floor which proved very useful and saved us having to rent them on the slopes. The location was great - 5 minutes walk to the gondola and moments away from all the bars/restaurants in Soldeu. The girls that look after the property at Andorra Travel Service were extremely helpful and friendly.
There were only a couple of minor issues.....the apartment has no lift so it can be quite an effort struggling with your case to the top floor. There were no basic essentials left for use (for example dishwasher tablets, loo roll, bin bags etc) so it would have been helpful to have a few basics left there for use. Also, there is no free wifi. You can purchase wifi vouchers from the super market next door, but it would be better if free wifi was included, as this method seems very outdated!
