The Space

Located in the town of Artíes, Val Artíes 2 is a unique holiday apartment, not at all like the traditional rustic Pyrenees mountain rental.

The stylish apartment features wood floors and high, wood-beam ceilings set off by exposed metal structures and trim to create a modern extremely attractive combination.

Val Artíes 2 is also equipped with convenient under-floor heating. The apartment is split over two levels. As you enter the house on the main floor, the open plan living room is to the left, bathed in natural light from the cluster of windows. Next to the living room is the dining room and designer kitchen.

Between the living and dining room areas is a three-sided fireplace and behind the fireplace, a study. On one side of the living room a stairway leads up to the master bedroom, and on the other side is the second bedroom.

The main bedroom on the upper level is separated from the living area with a low-level glass partition wall. The space is also draped with large red curtain to help keep the light out. There is an ensuite (email hidden) double bed and a dressing area.

The second bedroom, also quite spacious, has two beds, one 90 cm and the other 135 cm. Adjacent is a second bathroom. Both bathrooms are equipped with bathtubs.

Artíes is one of the most important towns in the Aran Valley, both in terms of architecture and tourism amenities. Artíes boasts some of the valleys best-known restaurants and pintxo (tapas) bars, and together Vielha, the most active and vibrant nightlife.
Artíes is located between Vielha and Baqueira Beret (7 km from each).

Val Artíes 2 and Val Artíes 3 are situated one above the other in the same building, making the two apartments perfect for celebrating holidays with groups of family or (website hidden) description:

The small village of Arties, with a population of 524 inhabitants, is situated at 1143 metres above sea level. It is located between the villages of Gessa and Garós, where the Valarties River meets the Garona River. Coming out of the village, the Valarties riverside, where the Montarto peak (2833 metres high) stands out, takes us to the river’s headwaters. At that point there is an entrance to the National Park of Aigúestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, as well as several lakes such as Mar, Tòrt de Rius, Rius, Restanca where there is a refuge and other small ones.

In the Old Town is worth visiting the church of Sta. María de Arties, a Romanesque construction from the 11th to 12th centuries which also has a bell tower from the 13th century.

To the North of the village, on the righ hand side of the Garona River, there is a Gothic style church from the 14th century. It is the church dedicated to San Juan de Arties which has an octagonal shape bell tower. Nowadays, it is a museum that holds temporary exhibitions.

On the outskirts of the village, it is possible to see the Arties abandoned spa, where there are still two fountains with sulphurous waters, one at 43 degrees centigrade and the other at 29 degrees centigrade.

In the centre of the village there is a school, a library, an old people’s club, a doctor’s surgery, a pharmacy, a bank, a tobacconist’s and a great deal of bars and restaurants with great atmosphere. Besides, Arties together with Vielha and Baqueira, is one of the places with best nightlife in the Valley. There is also a leisure and sports area and a zoological centre where a brown bear lives protected.

There are different types of accommodation in the village, modern houses and apartments specially designed for you to enjoy a truly unforgettable winter holiday. But if what you want is a skiing holiday, Arties is perfect as it is just 7 kms. away from the slopes of the ski resort of Baqueira Beret, about a 10 minute drive along the road C-28.

  • Simple yet spacious flat in a great location literally on the doorstep of the beach and easy access to shops and the old town- no beach or street views and small balcony looks into shared courtyard

  • This is a great apartment for 2 people, but will fit 4 with the very comfortable sleeper couch. Unfortunately it is a one bedroom and the sleeper is in the living area so if it's out and in use, there's no room to walk at all. Beautifully done, great bathroom, but NO HOOKS ANYWHERE! No hooks for wet towels in the bathroom, only outside on the small terrace (really small) and if it's raining, nothing will dry soon. If you need anything, someone will come within hours to help you (towels, pillows, etc.). This was the best service of any of the apartment rental services we used on our trip. Location was great, 10 minutes tops into the Old City. Also had a good supply of closet space and HANGERS, thank you, and not the crappy metal hangers you get from the cleaners or flimsy plastic one. WOOD! HOT WATER FOR DAYS AS WELL!

    All in all, a great stay but be warned, if you have two small kids no problem, two adults, it's just too small...

  • Super appart, idéal pour aller surfer. Balcon pour poser les planches et maximum 5 minutes à pieds de la plage en portant les planches. Quartier vivant et sympa.

  • Amazing location, nice view & amenities, can't do much better than this place for the price you pay. Would definitely recommend.

  • Great apartment 3 blocks from the beach and a 10 minute walk to Parte Vieja where all the pintxo bars are. The apartment is quite spacious with a large living room and kitchen. The terrace is great. Juan and his coworkers were quick to respond to questions and requests. Definitely recommend this apartment

  • This apartment was just perfect for our group of 7. The rooms were very nicely styled - the pictures do them no justice! We also really appreciated having 3 bathrooms and showers.

    The location was unbeatable, right in the old quarter near all the best pintxos and bars. It was also only a short walk from the ocean.

    Juanra was the best host. He was in constant communication with us. He was so accommodating and told us about the best places to see and eat. Do not hesitate in booking this place, it will only make your experience of this gorgeous city even better.

  • My friends and I had a wonderful experience at Zurriola Terrace. Pictures were accurate and overnight parking was a quick 5-10 minute walk away. The bed was comfortable, the place was tidy, and the views we're stunning. If I find myself in San Sebastian again, I will surely stay here again!

  • Had a great experience at La Perla. We were a family of 4 who was traveling through Spain and we made a stop in San Sebastian. The apartment was in a great location 200 yards from the beach. Juan and the team were great with helping us get in and getting our car situated. We would definitely recommend to others who want to visit Donostia-San Sebastian.

  • Price is low considering its peak season in San Sebastián. Small bed could barely fit my husband and I so be prepared to lay very close to each other. Otherwise it's a clean place, hot water worked well. No AC, but a fan that circulates air well. The windows all face indoor corridors and you can hear everything your neighbors do or say. Place was good enough for a few days. Overall nice and hosts were nice.

  • Great place, exactly what it looks like in the photos. Is light and airy in the day, and super quiet for a good night's sleep. Host met us at the car park and showed us around the flat, giving us some great intel on things to do in the evening! Would come back again in a heartbeat
