La Vall d´Aran can be found in the Catalan Pyrenees in the province of Lleida, situated not far from the French and Andorran borders. As well as being home to the popular ski resort of Baqueira/Beret, the area also has many quaint, picturesque towns plus an array of activities to enjoy, ideal for those looking to make the most of the Pyrenees Mountains.
In the summer months there are plenty of places in Vall d´Aran offering top activities. You can choose to explore the foothills of the mountains on horseback, wade into the clear waters of the Noguera Pallaresa River for some fly fishing, or let out your inner thrill-seeker with some rafting.
During the winter months the snow transforms Vall d´Aran into a bustling ski destination. Baqueira/Beret is just one of the many excellent resorts to be found here and with the largest skiable area in Spain (a massive 138km!), plus 78 ski runs and a snowboard park, it is one of the most popular winter resorts in the country.
If you´re looking for a quiet stay with that authentic Pyrenees feel, there are plenty of villages in which to relax in the peace and tranquility of the mountains. Situated just 10 minutes outside of Baqueira/Beret, Esterri d´Àneu is just one of the many lovely towns to be found in Vall d´Aran. Here you will have access to plenty of supermarkets and restaurants, as well as all of the activities on offer in this beautiful area of Catalonia.
So, if you´re looking to enjoy the best of the mountains, whether in summer or winter, renting a Catalan Pyrenees apartment in Vall d´Aran is an ideal option.
