As the biggest and most visited ski resort in Spain, Baqueira-Beret's name precedes it. Located in Val d'Aran on a remote cleft in the north of the mountain range, Baqueira-Beret's slopes are suave - and rather stately. Of a morning, you can expect to ski alongside any number of the Spanish royal family (King Juan Carlos has a holiday home here). Expect long runs of all standards with exciting, off-piste variations. Plus, for the best food and wine this side of a ski lift, head to Cinco Jotas Grill for lunch and Ticolet for fine-dining.
