Font Romeu ski holidays Skiing & snowboarding in Font Romeu, Pyrénées-Orientales
Font Romeu is a small ski spa resort sitting at 1800m in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France and just 10kms from the Spanish border. The resort is linked to Bolquère Pyrénées 2000, the neighbouring resort and together, they provide 43 pistes for all levels of skier and boarder. However, beginners are in for a treat as its possible to ski from the top of the mountain all the way to the village on a green run - quite rare!
Off the slopes, the apres-ski is a great mix of Iberian and south-western French influences making for lively and entertaining evenings - there are many cafes, bars and restaurants to choose plus a casino and club for late night entertainment. The village also boasts a thermal spa which is a popular retreat after a long day on the slopes.
