Ski Holidays in Font Romeu
Font-Romeu is part of the Catalan Pyrenees and is justly proud of its delightful climate, its traditions and its surroundings.
This authentic village does host a modern and panoramic ski resort and it has two centres with Font-Romeu at 1650m and Pyenees 2000 at........, you guessed it, 2,000m
As you wind your way up in to Font Romeu, do look out for the Heliodysée which is the helix shaped building covered in glass - it is a research station looking into solar power and how to extract energy from the sun. With 2,750 hours of sunshine each year, the decision was taken that this was an ideal location for research. Visits can be arranged - see the Doing More tab and select Tourist information.
Font-Romeu is stunning and is surrounded by towering peaks that rise to 2900 meters - it claims to be the sunniest in France......but there are a few that claim that!
The train station at Font Romeu is just 3km from the ski resort and the best option is to take the Friday evening train from Paris. The train leaves circa 21.45 and you will wake up in the morning to find yourself in the Pyrenees.
Change trains at Latour de Carol and just 75 minutes later, you will be in Font Romeu - approx 09.45 on Saturday.
This is a great option to be able to ski for 7 days.
Getting to Paris on the Friday can either be by Eurostar or fly - as many UK airports offer a Paris service.
