TRAVEL: DEALS OF THE WEEK: CHRISTMAS SKIING
Sunday 05 September 1999
Seven nights cost pounds 365 per person with Top Deck (tel: 0171-370 4555), departing on 19 December. Andorra is selling well, mainly because it is affordable - it's a good place to go over New Year, too, if you are looking for a lively place to party. Canillo should be connected to the main ski field this year by lift, which will save having to take the bus. The price includes return flights, transfers and half-board at the Hotel Armany, with a special Christmas meal.
