With delicious local food, stunning vistas, and some of the best touring roads in the world, the Pyrenees mountain range on the border of Spain and France has a draw for every type of adventurer, and it's still a hidden gem.
Using the highly regarded Parador hotels, each with its own unique atmosphere and ambience, our first night stay is at Parador Argomaniz an elegant Renaissance Palace close to the Basque city of Vitoria Gasteiz. For our second, third and fourth nights we are booked into the Parador Arties deep in the Spanish Pyrenees mountains. The hotel has a swimming pool and terrace for those who wish put their feet up for a few days or for the more adventurous head off to some of the beautiful Pyrenean villages like Sort, La Seu d'Urgell or head for Andorra for some duty free shopping. Last but not least Parador Sos del Rey Catolico is located within the walls of this famous Aragon village. The elegant décor and fantastic views are not to be missed.
