Lounging in water at 32 ° C is a real parenthesis of happiness , especially when the outside temperature does not exceed 5 ° C! The program in this pool of 800 square meters combines sport and fitness . Swimming against the current in the wild river, relaxing fountains , carpet of bubbles , whirlpools , massaging jet streams relax all the muscles of our body for this divine sensation of letting go.

At sunset, nothing like a detour to the outdoor pool , open all year round, to admire the last light of day. The atmosphere is sifted and the steam which escapes from the basin gives it an almost magical atmosphere when night falls.

The outdoor pool and the magic of the evening

To multiply the invigorating effects of hot water and feelings of well-being, we cross the relaxation area for a spa session . Reserved for adults, this place of absolute zenitude includes a Roman bath (or giant jacuzzi), a hammam , two saunas , a cold water bath and a rest room . The effects of the hammam on the body are immediate: it opens the pores of the skin, it frees the respiratory tract, it soothes muscle pain and eliminates tension. The alternation of the hammam, saunas and cold water baths promotes blood circulation and tones the skin. All these benefits echo and the sensations amplify the pleasure. We come out relaxed and calm.
