AX-LES-THERMES


Ax-les-Thermes is a pleasant town tucked in the folds of the mountains where the road starts to head resolutely up towards Andorra. Ax has a few shops, some great spas, skiing in the season and a couple of crags that are worth a visit if you are passing through. Work on a by-pass has been on-going for several years - but appears to have stalled. If it is ever opened it should free up the town centre from the heavy summer traffic. There are three areas of interest: the Rocher de la Galline (often referred to as Sector Piscine) is in the town and only minutes from the road. On the same side of the valley is the slightly more remote (15 minutes walk-in) Sector Entreserres. On the opposite side of the valley and close to the ski area, is Sector Bonascre, which receives morning sunshine and is reached by a short downhill walk.
