If you don't want to stay right in Baqueira-Beret or if you find that area a bit too expensive or crowded for your taste, there are a few small villages around this ski area that you can stay at instead - Arties and Viehla.
A post-skiing tradition in Spain is to get tapas at a local bar where you pick your own tapas from a smorgasbord of offerings and then pay for each item you eat. Hotspots are the renowned Urtau Tapas Bar. My favorite tapas has to be this: Gulas - baby eels that taste like fish noodles! We also had some Après-ski at Dry Snow one of the world's top 50 cocktail bars located within the very trendy boutique hotel, Parador de Arties.
Paradores is a Spanish government-owned luxury boutique hotel chain that blends modern facilities with traditional regional touches in their decor and architecture and the cuisine available on their dining menu.
