Spa and Balneotherapy in Provence

Spas, massages, fitness and wellness centres in Provence

Balnéo en Provence

Here in Provence Côte d'Azur, the gentle pace of life is a natural gift that we are happy to share. An exceptional climate, a region bathed in sunshine almost all year round, with its feet in the Mediterranean under a blue sky.

Spa massage en Provence

Spas and balneotherapy centres are wellness and fitness and beauty treatment centres, usually run by hotels or guest houses, which offer the same facilities and treatments as thalassotherapy centres, but in more limited numbers and not always under medical supervision. They mainly use freshwater (unlike thalassotherapy, which uses seawater), which may be combined with products extracted from the sea (mud, seaweed, etc.).

Massage spa

The equipment and treatment concepts vary from spa to spa, depending on the prestige and luxury of the accommodation: heated indoor and/or outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, spas, etc.

Bains bouillonnants en Provence

Most are based on aromatherapy and/or are inspired by an oriental philosophy or technique that is both Zen and hedonistic. They combine hydrotherapy (water-based treatments) with messages of relaxation. Each spa and fitness centre has its own character and specificities, but all compete to ensure your well-being, serenity and rejuvenation.

In these spas, you'll find comfort and relaxation on the inside, as well as the pleasure of refined luxury, often accompanied by tasty food (dietetic and/or gastronomic).
