We feature several options in and around San Pedro. Because the ski season dictates that we are ‘low season’, it all becomes that bit more affordable yet the town never looses it’s unique atmosphere. Hotels, even at the top of the range, tend not to come with televisions, and many rooms do not even have phones. This is a place from which to banish the outside world.
