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 bathroom, a 150 cm 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.

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.

Nuestra estancia fue perfecta, la casa es preciosa, tal cual aparece en las fotos. Esta totalmente equipada y es muy confortable con cómodos sofas, una chimenea, un rincón de despacho y la zona de comedor. Las dos habitaciones son amplias, al igual que ambos baños. Hay wifi, impresora, libros y juegos de mesa. La ubicación de la casa es muy buena y el pueblo es encantador. La atención recibida por Juan Ramon y su equipo fue excelente. Sin duda repetiremos cada año y lo recomiendo a todos los huéspedes :-)
This apartment is gorgeous! Beautifully set up and tucked away in the most picturesque village which is easily accessible for skiing at Baqueira. We had several wonderful restaurants just around the corner from the apartment and everything we needed to stay in and cook too. Thank you for the stay we had a very memorable holiday and we'll be back!
