“Spanish snowboarding visit”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We visited La Molina in December for a snowbaording trip and chose the Xalet Pere Carne. What can I say except "STAY HERE!!". We were treated like family and introduced to other travellers as a formality. We had delicious local meals and enjoyed wine as part of meals.

Our hosts painted a great picture of Catalan culture and hospitality and helped in every way that they could.

The rooms were clean and tidy and the place has beautiful views and is easily found by catching the bus from the train station (which we did and then used the same ticket to get to the ski slopes.

I cannot recommend this place enough. It is great value. For 36 euros you get a bed , breakfast and evening meal. The rooms are not big and the beds are bunk beds as you would expect in this type of accomodation. But the kids love it. Its fun and very friendly. The atmosphere is very sociable and I believe the overall experience is better than staying in a 3 or 4 star hotel for double the money that is less friendly and with worse food. Usually hotels in the mountains offer a buffet of 20 dishes...all bad. Here there is a set menu of home made catalan classics. 4 courses. A big bowl of soup, a salad, a stew/caserole of some sort and desert, a jug of red wine and a jug of water...all in with the price of the bed. What more can you want? Its perfect mountain food after a days skiing. Don´t expect to get chips with reheated frozen chicken nuggets etc. For that pay double and goto a hotel nearby. And leave those in the know to stay at this little gem. Pre dinner they put a projected film onto a big screen for the kids and there´s a smoking bar with tv for adults...and a lounge area with roaring fire and board games to play. Only critisism is there is no table football or satelite tv for Barca games!

A couple of years ago I stayed at the Refugi Pere Carné with some friends for a long weekend of skiing. We had a 7-bed room to ourselves, use of shared facilities, breakfast and evening meal for the bargain price of £20pp per night. The facilities are clean and warm, the beds are comfortable and the staff very friendly. There's a small bar on site and a fire to make it cosy.
I'm actually planning a big group trip back to the same place for next year.
The only downside is that the ski lifts at La Molina are a few kilometers from the refuge meaning you really need your own transport, although I understand there is a bus service. As the hotel is quite isolated evening entertainment is limited. As I said before, it's perfect no-frills accommodation for a budget ski break.

  • Liked — Value for money, friendliness
  • Disliked — Slightly isolated
