Sitting on Andorra’s border with France, the resort town of El Pas de la Casa is one of the highest points in Europe, with an elevation of 2,408 meters (7,900 ft). During the early 20th century, there was only a single shepherd’s hut overlooking the mountain pass. Many years later, the town progressed into a world-class ski paradise, known for its fun and affordable winter sports activities.
With its altitude and position among snow-capped mountains, one might think that the nightlife at this winter sports haven is nonexistent. On the contrary, Pas de la Casa has earned a reputation as a lively party town, as well. Bars and restaurants can be found on every corner, providing weary visitors with a place to warm up after a day of traversing the slopes. In June, the French-speaking town gets in touch with its Catalan roots, by celebrating the Festival of Sant Pere.
During the peak seasons, it can be quite hard to get decent accommodation here, as the town is crowded with tourists. If you want to spend your next holiday in this mountain wonderland, here are 10 of the best Airbnb vacation rentals you should not miss.
Located at the foot of the slopes, near the town center, this property offers a stellar location, along with top-notch comfort.
