Oak Hall Holidays

A unique mountain principality

Andorra is an independent state, high in the mountains between France and Spain.
It has some of the most stunningly rugged scenery in Europe. Narrow valleys wind between high mountains, which soar to 2946m (9665ft).

We offer an optional excursion package on three of the days and you can also explore the stunning scenery by foot, enjoying the interesting local walks. 

An unspoilt, perfect escape

Created in the 800s to protect France, today Andorra is unspoilt and quiet. Its small size makes it easy for us to explore; this summer it is accessible to us as the perfect escape out of the busyness of life into the tranquillity of the mountains.


Staying high in the mountains

Our three-star hotel is located on the edge of the village of Arinsal, in the heart of the mountains. Hotel Sant Gothard has facilities that include an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and mini golf. The village centre, with a cable car, small supermarket and cafes etc, is 15 mins by foot. 


Exploring Andorra together

Our optional package of three excursions will give us the opportunity to discover the highlights of Andorra. Climbing by coach to the top of the Arcalis valley, with impressive views along the way, we reach the Creussans chair lift. From the top there are excellent views across Andorra and into France. We then have the option of a walk that takes us alongside the river to the interesting town of Ordino. 

Peaceful mountain villages

We will also have a day travelling through unspoilt, picturesque villages. Pal is an example of classic Andorran architecture. Standing by the church, the views of the village below are a gift for any photographer.

We also stop at Lake Engolasters, which is in a beautiful setting and is the largest lake in Andorra. There is an optional walk available for us to enjoy here.
"There are plenty of activities to do starting from the hotel on free days - walking or excursions. It was an easy walk into the village to go to the shops. It was very convenient to have the bus stop outside the hotel."

An attractive Spanish town

Another day, we cross the border into Spain to visit the interesting Catalan town of Seu d’Urgell. This town is named after its ancient and impressive Romanesque cathedral, built in the 11th to 12th centuries. It was also the site of the kayak contest in the Barcelona Olympics. Like everything in the region, this historic town is set against the backdrop of beautiful mountains.

High in the Pyrenees

On our free days, there are plenty of interesting walks or other activities on offer. You might choose to take the Arinsal cable car up higher into the mountains or a local bus to Andorra la Vella, the highest capital city in Europe. It has an impressive setting in a steep gorge and is famous for its low tax regime in the shopping centres. 

After a day by the hotel swimming pool, walking in the mountains or adventure in the towns we can enjoy a meal and spend time listening to an inspiring Bible talk.

Join us to explore this unusual and beautiful destination, high in the Pyrenees.
