We;ve just come back from a week's skiing in Are Sweden. The hotel Renen is in the village of Duved about 9k from Are, there is skiing in Duved but to get to the more extensive slopes of Are you have to take a ski bus (about 20 mins journey time at 30 min interval). There is no connection by ski lift. Bus stops are convenient for the hotel and free with the lift pass - which is just as well when carrying skis - nowhere to leave skis over night in Are we were told
Duved although pretty has limited facilities - not many cafes and the bus times are restrictive - going into Are in the evening meant careful planning around the bus timetable or paying the equivalent of £20 for a taxi.
So that all sounds a bit negative - on the plus side the hotel is very good we had a comfortable room and were lucky enough to find it had a small cooking area with sink and microwave which we used - Duved did have was a good supermarket. We alternated between eatng in and eating out to save a bit of money. We asked for a kettle and hairdryer and the room also had an excellent drying cabinet for wet skiwear.
Breakfast was excellent - not cooked but everything was plentiful and to a high standard. There was a bar/food available but only on selected evenings - looked a bit dingy and dull but we were told the foood was good.
The hotel would be very suitable for anyone with a car, for families or those wanting a quiet holiday - not best placed for groups wanting night life
