Pas de la Casa Reviews
We went second year in a row to the same place. Pas de la Casa has never let us down. Small compact resort with fantastic facilities. Great food hotel Catalunya we stayed this year was fab. Great experience for whole family.
Apres Ski: 5/5
We arrived in Pas on a Sunday afternoon, which is notorious for crowds from neighbouring countries to descend to take advantage of the low duty on luxury goods. The place was gridlocked until the early evening, when the mini bus was eventually able to deliver our luggage to our hotel. Pas is not a pretty place, but the excellent skiing more than compensates. It is a vast ski area with very well cared for pistes. There are lots of lovely mountain restaurants and miles of quiet runs. There were no lift queues to worry about. The town has a good range of restaurants and bars for apres ski, and drinks prices are not excessive, with many having happy hours. Shopping is well catered for, especially perfume, tobacco and alcohol. We would definitely return.
