One of Europe’s most peculiar countries, Andorra is a microstate neatly nestled between France and Spain, best known for its vibrant ski culture, beautiful scenery, great wine, and its much lower taxes—when compared to its neighbors. Andorra is fast becoming one of the trendiest tech hubs, with many digital nomads flocking to the country to take up residence either as self-employed entrepreneurs or passive residents.
Andorra is one of the safest and most peaceful countries in the world. As tiny as it is, there are tons of attractions and a year-round roster of cultural activities—not to mention, excellent internet connectivity and exemplary safety. Given that most of the coworking spaces are located in its capital, Andorra la Vella would be the best option for a remote worker and digital nomad—but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider living in other parishes. In fact, given the size of the country, with the exception of Pas de la Casa, you can get to Andorra la Vella from most of the other parishes in as little as fifteen to twenty minutes.
Andorra la Vella
Andorra la Vella is one of the seven parishes that make up Andorra. Situated at a height of 1,050 meters, Andorra la Vella is the European city with the highest altitude. It has beautiful landscapes and is easily accessible by bus from either Toulouse or Barcelona. As it has no airport of its own, you will need to fly into one of these cities first to get to Andorra. Stroll along Andorra la Vella’s main commercial area Avinguda Carlemany, lined with a plethora of shops and hotels, not to mention Illa Carlemany, Andorra’s largest shopping mall complete with supermarket, tons of eating places ranging from country-centric cuisine to different kinds of fast foods, and numerous shops that stock some of the world’s most well-known brands.
Excellent amenities are available throughout Illa for remote workers, allowing you to connect from its numerous hotspots while exploring the parish and its outdoors. For the remote worker, Andorra de Vella has coworking spaces including Ingeni, Smart Executive Centers, Andorra Work Center. Prices vary from hourly to monthly but Ingeni is highly rated and offers their daily pass at 25 Euros. All coworking spaces have options that include a desk, private and virtual offices, as well as meeting and conference rooms.
When you’re ready to explore, visit the Casa de la Vall, a historic building built in the 1580s that today houses the Andorran parliament. For nature lovers, Andorra la Vella boasts the Parc Central, designed by the architect Daniel Gelabert Fontova. It’s an all-purpose meeting point to relax, chat, play sports, enjoy cultural activities, or just meet up with friends. Seize the opportunity to try some escudella, Andorra’s national dish. If you’re adventurous, try cargols a la lluna or oven-roasted snails, eaten with aioli sauce. For dining specifics, El Crosto comes highly recommended for its Mediterranean ambiance. Other options include the highly rated Plat’in, Versailles, Taverna Lapurdi, La Conxita, as well as the pricier but delectable Eximi.
One of Andorra’s parishes, Encamp lies to the northeast of Andorra de Vella and has lots to offer outdoorsy digital nomads. Situated on the Valira d’Orient river, it’s a favorite with hikers and snowboarders during winter months. There are no coworking spaces here, but digital nomads can commute to Andorra la Vella. The Hive Five CoWorking is particularly accessible and has a terrace that can hold up to 60 people.
While staying in Encamps, visit Lake Engolasters’ crystal clear waters surrounded by breathtaking greenery, or hike up to Port d’Envalira, the mountain with the highest road in the Pyrenees. You also have two excellent museum choices in Encamp: the Museo Etnografico Casa Cristo and the Museo Nacional de l’Automobil. Great food awaits at the well-regarded Borda Vella, located in a 17th-century restored house or borda.
The smallest parish of Andorra is Escaldes-Engordany, and you cannot come to Andorra without experiencing its world-class spa Caldea-Inuu, known for its healing thermal waters. Like the rest of Andorra, options for coworking are mostly restricted to Andorra de Vella but Escaldes is a short walk from Andorra la Vella anyway, so this should not be an obstacle to Escaldes lovers.
If you love the arts, consider the Centro de Arte in Escaldes-Engordany which houses a collection of Romanesque art and temporary exhibitions. One of the best restaurants here is El Cachirulo, which offers a variety of Mediterranean, European, Catalan, and Spanish dishes, although it is somewhat pricy.
La Massana is one of the most vibrant parishes in Andorra and home to a large concentration of expats and digital nomads. With numerous internet-ready cafes and hotels scattered throughout, not to mention its close proximity to the skiing and biking resort Vallnord, which offers more than 40 kilometers of track and 29 circuits. Unlike Andorra la Vella, it has very few options for coworking spaces, but there is an abundance of internet-ready cafes like Grupetta Cafe , Mon Bohemi, and Creperia Fred Oh!
Ordino is located about six kilometers from Andorra la Vella and is made up of the villages of La Cortinada, Ansalonga, Llorts, Sornas, and Ordino, which are all tranquil areas that offer serenity and space for anyone considering where to live. For the remote worker, the choices for coworking spaces in Ordino are limited, though cafes and hotels in the area abound with good internet connectivity and designated hotspots.
Ordino offers the remote worker several places to visit. One could be a stiff climb to the Coll d’Ordino where the determined climber is rewarded with great views at the top. Make it a point to visit the Museo de la Miniatura de Ordino, which showcases artwork in miniature. Ordino’s food choices will take you to the moderately priced Vertical, located along the Carrer Major Casa Jep de Tor. The menu offers ample variety with Mediterranean, Japanese Fusion, European and Catalan choices available. The Hotel Coma Restaurant offers a more traditional Catalan menu. You can sample local artisan butifarra sausages as you enjoy your breakfast at the hotel’s Restaurant Cal Ventura.
