Vielha, 9 miles from Baqueira is the principal town in the Val d'Aran and has developed into a substantial community with over 4,000 permanent inhabitants. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants as well as large supermarkets, commercial outlets, an ice rink and swimming pool complex. I stayed at Parador de Vielha that had awonderful spa and heated outdoor pool with an amazing view.

Even if that wasn’t where our wedding was it’s a great place to start. Great transport, fabulous town, Montpellier is not your average tourist destination. While most people think of Nice or Cannes or Provence as the South of France, Montpellier is far less touristy, far more real and has its own unique vibe. So fly in to Montpellier, hang about for a few days just walking around the old town, eating and drinking rosé in the square then pop into the boutiques and listening to street music. You can also base yourself here to explore these nearby treasures.

Full of museums, religious monuments, and ancient history, Girona is a wonderful tribute to Catalonia and its people.What to See/Do- Museums: Girona is home to a tragic and beautiful history, as shown out in its museums. See the Museu d’Historia dels Jueus for an overview of the Jewish community that once inhabited this town, or the Museu d’Historia de Girona set in 18th century cloisters to see the city from its Roman times until now. There is also an art museum with over 8500 pieces, and a Cinema Museum.- Banys Arabs: These Arabic bathhouses are a lovely testament to the early Muslim influence on Spain, and a great place to relax.Where to Eat- There are two restaurants with Michelin stars here, El Celler de Can Roca, and Massana.- Another local favorite is Divinum, full of delicious Catalan cuisine and local wines.10.
