Spanish Pyrenees - Skiing like kings!

Baqueira and Beret. These two ski resorts are fairly unknown by English tourists but are popular with the Spanish ski fraternity and more famously with Spanish royalty.

The slopes are wide and well-groomed; a great place for my eldest daughter to learn to ski here with an English speaking local ski guide.

The resorts are small enough to find your way around easily and there didn't seem to be many queues at the lifts, always a bonus!

TIP: If you fancy a day off skiing, or you injure yourself like me, Barcelona is a few hours drive away.
