Andorra Ski Accommodation in Soldeu, Andorra

Description

Soldeu is a lively and friendly little village very popular with British skiers. The ambiance is relaxed, more Catalan than French in character, with great après-ski.

For its size, Soldeu is incredibly well served with busy bars, clubs and restaurants and its facilities have been greatly improved in recent years, both on and off the slopes.

The resort spreads out over 4kms in 4 distinct areas – El Tarter, Incles, Bordes d’Envalira and Soldeu village itself - connected by a regular bus service.

Access to the slopes is by modern gondola lifts from either Soldeu village or El Tarter.

This extensive, modern lift network has recently been linked to Pas de la Casa and Grau Roig by the introduction of the new Grand Valira whole area lift pass thereby greatly enhancing the ski area for intermediate and advanced skiers.

Apres

There is a good selection of bars and pubs to choose from in Soldeu and the village atmosphere is friendly and informal.

The centre of the action lies on the main road in the village and the most popular spots include Aspen, which has a traditional sports pub atmosphere with table football, pool and live music and Iceberg, which has a panoramic terrace facing the slopes.

Villager is locally acclaimed as the first spot for a drink after a day’s skiing and welcomes ski gear and goggle clad visitors. Like most of the pubs in Soldeu, it often features live music appearances and shows main sporting events on screens around the bar.

Those looking to dance into the early hours of the morning should head to Fat Albert’s Bar which is open until 3am and 4 am on the weekends. Locally known as Fatty’s, this bar is a firm favourite and the resident DJ plays everything from cheesy pop to house.


Eating out

Soldeu is home to a delicious local cuisine but the resort offers something to suit all tastes. Local specialities include the Butifarra sausage, Crema catalane which is custard based pudding with a coating of burnt caramel and Xai al forn which is oven baked shoulder of leg of lamb.

Restaurants in Soldeu are predominantly better in village than on the mountain. However the Arossera Pi de Migdia, at the top of the El Tarter gondola, is a good choice for both an easy quick and tasty lunch in the self service area but also has a highly recommended table service section. Similarly, the Riba Escorxada features a trattoria-pizzeria that boasts stunning views from the terrace.

A lot of the best restaurants are contained within the hotels. However, otherwise known as Fatty’s, Fat Albert’s has a friendly atmosphere and great food, serving up local specialities and home favourites such as steak, fish and burgers. The business enjoys its rustic and authentic setting inside a 300 year old converted bar.

For larger groups looking for a lively evening to celebrate an eventful day’s skiing, Fat Albert’s offers a buffet and live music upstairs in Fat Albert’s Bar. The Aspen on the main road of Soldeu village offers a decent selection of British pub-style food and Sol i Neu, facing the slope has a tasty snack bar as well as a local a la carte menu.



Activities

There are loads of non-skiing, action-packed activities to do such as dog sledding, skidoo-ing, snow-mobiling, quad-biking and ice scuba diving. Off the snow, there is less to do and most resort activities revolve around relaxing in the thermal spa’s and leisure centre.
