Located further down the Val D’Aran, about 6km from the lift station and Baqueira, Casa Irene sits at 1500m in one of the more picturesque and traditional villages that make up the Aran Valley. Surrounded by traditional stone clad houses and historic churches, the village square with tapas bars and local drinking bars is only a short walk away. The complimentary shuttle service (Monday – Saturday) takes you to and from the lifts, thus avoiding the need for taxis or the local bus, a very welcomed service.

The hotel restaurant is famous all around the valley for its refined simplicity and use of the excellent local produce. Breakfast, afternoon snacks and delightful evening dinners are all served in here, the restaurant is also open to outside guests. However, due to the proximity to so many good local restaurants we would suggest B&B, allowing you to enjoy all the delights of the area.
For such a traditional local hotel the spa will surprise you; an indoor pool, a Jacuzzi, steam rooms, saunas and massage facilities. A lovely treat for when you return from a good days skiing.
The Casa Irene is a lovely and very affordable hotel for all kinds of holiday goers. Families and couples will love the hospitality, attention to detail and the service offered, as well as the proximity to the local village amenities.
