The Sport Hermitage & Spa is the only five-star hotel situated practically on the slopes of Andorra’s Grandvalira ski resort. Nightly fees include three hours on the water circuit, where you can soothe your ski-weary limbs in hot, warm and cold pools and open-air jacuzzis. During spring and summer, the hotel also provides easy access to Europe’s highest golf course, Soldeu Golf, located at an altitude of 2,250m (7,380ft). Onsite restaurant Koy Hermitage is the Andorran cousin of Barcelona’s Koy Shunka, the Michelin-star creation of Japanese chef Hideki Matsuhisa.

2. Hotel Naudi Boutique

This adults-only boutique is run by the third generation of Naudis, a family of prominent Andorran hoteliers. Situated 150m (500ft) from the Grandvalira gondola and 2km (1.2mi) from the Incles Valley, it’s well-appointed both for skiers during the winter and hikers throughout the spring and summer. Contemporary accommodation offers either mountain or village views. Ski storage and onsite parking are free, too.

3. Hotel Himalaia Soldeu

For no extra cost, you can join daily hiking expeditions led by expert mountain guides while staying at Hotel Himalaia, a cosy lodge on Soldeu’s main drag. Skiers, meanwhile, are just steps from the Grandvalira resort’s main lift. Cyclists are offered a menu of specially designed routes, some of which follow the punishing Tour de France and Vuelta a España courses. When not hitting the slopes or trails, chill in the Turkish bath, work out in the gym or head to the games room for pool, darts or pinball.

4. Hotel Piolets Soldeu Centre

Directly opposite the Himalaia is its slightly bigger sibling, the 118-room Hotel Piolets. It’s a popular option for families, offering competitively priced suites with both king and single beds, a padded play area for kids and a wellness centre for adults. Massages and beauty treatments are available upon request. After a day spent on the snow, call in at the bar for discounted après-ski drinks, before dining at the in-house pizza joint overlooking the slopes.

5. Hotel Les Truites

The family-run Hotel Les Truites is situated in the resort of El Pas de la Casa, a 20-minute drive south of Soldeu. Josep and his dad will do everything to make you feel at home, such as preparing your breakfast if you have an early-morning flight. Another key draw is its proximity (two minutes on foot) to an indoor sports centre, where everything from basketball to bodybuilding is on offer. Just ask one of the family members to arrange your day pass.

6. Sport Hotel Village

A comprehensive range of daily activities are offered, including hiking and 4×4 excursions for the entire clan, face painting and treasure hunts for the little ones, plus karting and igloo-building for teenagers. For an extra charge, you will also have access to the Sport Wellness Mountain Spa as well as ski guides and lessons. Grandvalira’s main gondola and all of its bars and restaurants are within a short stroll from reception.
