We like to think that a skiing or mountain biking holiday in the Pyrenees is something a bit special, and so do many others who have discovered the Pyrenees Orientales. To quote a few independent reviews of us and our area-

"Unlocking a secret world" by The Daily Express.

Jeremy Wright gets an insider guide from Altitude Adventure to the little known Neiges Catalanes in the French Pyrenees... " The real beauty was in having such knowledgeable hosts. Whether pounding down the longest off-piste route in the Pyrenees at the Espace Cambre D'Aze, relaxing with a flask of hot chocolate and rum in natural hot springs, or searching for wolf tracks as we snowshoed behind the hotel, we always felt we were being let into a special, secret world." 

"High Life in the Pyrenees" by MBR Magazine.

Danny Milner reports after an April biking visit to us...." I'm guided along alpine singletrack beneath limestone bluffs the spitting image if the Dolomites or the Canadian Rockies, along precipitious terraces overhung by ochre rock formations that resemble parts of Colorado, and through pine forests scattered with huge granite boulders that remind me of Lake Tahoe. It's like a journey through the world's best singletrack, condensed into a 25km radius."

"Little Spots that Rock" by Document Snowboard.

Jonny Richards reports on Font Romeu and the Neiges Catalanes area... "If you're bored of queues, bend-over prices and hellish transfer demands of the French Alps, this historic area might just be the answer". "The friendly helpful locals are the antithesis of their alpine compatriots".  "This resort encapsulates all that is good about the Pyrenees, with deserted pistes, more sunshine than any other French ski Destination (over 3000 hrs last season) and a town centre packed with more old school charm than Nigel Havers. In tweed."
