Baqueira is an urban complex situated at 1500 metres above sea level, with a population of 94 inhabitants permanently living there. It was created as the ski resort of Baqueira-Beret opened and the need for full services to the area arose. There is no hospital but there is an emergency and casualty unit for skiers. There are also some high quality restaurants.
Since its opening on December 6th 1964, Baqueira-Beret has become one of the best ski resorts in the Pyrenees and one with the best and most quantity of snow due to be facing North. According to this year’s figures (2011), it offers its visitors 120 kms. of sign-posted and prepared ski slopes, 14 kms. of itineraries, 7 kms. of cross-country track, snowpark, slalom stadium, 33 ski lifts and 546 artificial snow cannons. And they improve their facilities year after year.
According to ski experts, Baqueira-Beret has in the surrounding area some of the most sought-after off-piste skiing spaces. Many enthusiasts travel from all over Europe to enjoy this possibility and the after-ski services in Baqueira.
Apart from this off-piste space, there are two other large skiing areas. Firstly, Beret (at 2100 metres above sea level), which can be reached by a road that leaves the C-28 as we come out of the town centre. This area is recommended for ski beginners.
Secondly, the area called Bonaigua which is perfect for the ski experts. In order to be able to access this area of Baqueira-Beret we can go from Baqueira to the highest point of Bonaigua-Peülla, or go from the town called Esterri d’Àneu, on the other side of the mountain pass, if we are coming from Sort.
During the summer season Baqueira-Beret also offers great possibilities and facilities for those who want to enjoy the countryside, walking or on a bike.
Both, Baqueira as well as the housing developments of Val de Ruda and Baqueira 1700, have different types of accommodation, modern houses and apartments specially designed for you to enjoy a truly unforgettable winter holiday. If what you want is a proper skiing holiday, this is an exceptional place as it is so close to the ski resort of Baqueira-Beret.

C'est la troisième fois que nous passons un séjour dans un appartement géré par Juanra et comme d'habitude la qualité du service et de l'appartement étaient au RDV.
We had a great stay in this apartment and Juan was very helpful and responsive to our request.
The apartment is very well situated in the old district but that makes it very noisy at night... All night long. You better be out partying as well!
We also found the flat quite dark which may be a good thing when it is hot outside? But in April, that wasn't ideal.
But we had a good stay and San Sebastian is a fantastic!
Casa esta presiosa.
Nos gustaria estar in esas apartamentos.
Excellent location. You literally fall out into central area of shops, bakeries, restaurants and bars. Modern, clean, quiet flat containing all the necessities. Flat was excellent in terms of value, location, cleanliness and function. Apartment is one of many in the portfolio of organisation but response to queries was immediate and sincere effort made to fix any issues. Would we stay here again? Absolutely.
Potential negatives: parking lot is a 10 minute walk away. However, car and contents were safely looked after.
This is a fantastic apartment. The service was slick.
Apartment was great but wifi did not work during stay.
Les photos de l'intérieur de l'appartement sont fidèles mais Juan a oublié de préciser que l'appartement se trouve sous un bar restaurant bruyant de 9h00 à 2h00 du matin le samedi. De plus le local permettant de stocker les frigos et les bouteilles du bar touche le sejour de l'appartement et un monte charge bruyant fonctionne régulièrement. Nous ne pouvons pas vous conseiller cet appartement, nous sommes d'ailleurs en litige avec Juan pour obtenir un dédommagement pour nous avoir caché des choses lors de la location. Les chambres donnent en rez de chaussée sous une passerelle menant au bar, les clients jettent leurs cigarettes devant vos portes fenêtres. Nous sommes à votre disposition si vous souhaitez des photos.

Apto limpio, bien equipado, moderno y confortable muy cerca de los remontes.
Fantastic clean, modern apartment, right in the heart of the city. We loved staying here, the apartment had everything you could need and was easy to get to all the major sights in San Sebastian from the apartment. Juan was very helpful and prompt with his replies. Thanks Juan for a great stay, highly recommend this apartment to anyone.
