DREAMING OF REMOTENESS ……..Refugi L’illa, Andorra

If you would like to reset and recharge in seven of the world’s best secluded stays, then look no further. We’ll be featuring one a day. Here’s your second:

Nestled in between Spain and France in the heart of the Pyrenees, the tiny principality of Andorra is a hidden gem for those looking for a remote mountain break.

For the ultimate escape in the clouds, guarded ‘refuges’, or catered mountain huts, are located high in the mountains and are only accessible via foot (or helicopter), offering a comfortable bed for the night and a hearty meal after a day of hiking.

The refuges are completely surrounded by the spectacular Pyrenees, where guests can take in the fresh mountain air and admire the stunning views feeling completely disconnected from everyday life.

There are 27 mountain huts that are hidden along hiking routes in Andorra, four of which are catered and can be found along the Coronallacs walking trail.

These rural, yet well-equipped refuges, are the ideal cosy spot for guests to relax ahead of another day of exploring.
