About Soldeu

Andorra lies at the heart of the Pyrenees, and at the heart of Andorra itself lies the village of Soldeu, forming part of the Grandvalira Ski Resort. Soldeu is ideally placed to take advantage of the winter sports for which Andorra is becoming renowned, with Grandvalira providing a total of 2000 hectares of ski area that provide 110 slopes ranging from beginner slopes to black, as well as competition slopes, thus catering for all levels of skier. There are also snowboarding routes and snowshoe trails for those seeking an alternative to skiing. The 64 lifts in Grandvalira are capable of transporting nearly 100,000 skiers per hour, ensuring that there is always easy access to the slopes.

Soldeu itself is a popular centre for visitors to the resort; it has an excellent ski school with multilingual teachers, making it ideal for the beginner, although more experienced skiers will have no difficulty reaching a slope to suit their level of skiing expertise. It is also possible to hire skidoos, take a husky ride or a flight in a helicopter. Situated at an altitude of 1800 m, the village has hotels of several classes, including a luxury five-star hotel and spa, and modern apartments are available for both long- and short-term lets. Popular with British, French and Spanish tourists, Soldeu is well supplied with shopping facilities along with a good selection of restaurants and bars, many of which offer live music.

Situated on Andorra’s main through route between Spain and France, Soldeu is easy to reach. Modern development has been sensitive, with new residential complexes constructed in traditional Pyrenees style, in natural materials such as rock, slate and wood, but with high levels of comfort. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Soldeu is also an ideal summer resort for visitors, offering walking tours, pony trekking and high-altitude swimming in spectacular lakes with crystal clear water. Good, uncrowded roads make it easy to explore the rest of Andorra, taking in its unique culture and folklore, which has developed over the nearly 1200 years since the principality was first established by Charlemagne.

A place that once visited will draw you back time and time again, Soldeu’s welcoming atmosphere and its natural attributes make it the ideal place to stay for shorter or longer periods. Whether you are a snow lover or a nature lover, Soldeu has something for everyone.
