We have just returned from our stay in the Tuc Blanc in Baqueira and we had a great time. The hotel is excellent and the food just as good. The breakfasts are the best we have ever had in a ski hotel. The hotel is situated just over the road from the gondola but beware there are a lot of steps to get there - not great first thing in the morning and you can ski back to the gondola at the end of the day.
This was our first ski trip to Baqueira - usually skiing in France - the resort gave us a good relaxing skiing holiday - none of the runs were very challenging lots of wide blues and some good reds, which made it a nice cruising holiday!! The slopes were not very busy until Saturday when all the local kids ski schools and the locals hit the slopes!!
Mountain restaurants are not particularly great - mostly fast food - but after the breakfast in the Tuc Blanc a baguette or toasted sandwich was all that was needed.
The village was okay - don't expect the kind of shops, bars and restaurants etc you would get in Val D'Isere
Overall, this was a really nice relaxed skiing holiday - great hotel,good skiing and the weather was not too bad - three really good sunny days - the others were okay. We would recommend the Tuc Blanc and Baqueira to anyone wanting a holiday in a good hotel with some good skiing.
Try it for a change - you will be pleasantly surprised!!!
