The Balnéa leisure spa was built at the foot of the Peyragudes and Val Louron ski stations, on the banks of Génos-Loudenvielle Lake in the Hautes Pyrénées. With breathtaking mountain views, the experience adds to the natural hot springs experience by inviting you on a trip around the world, where you can indulge in stone and mosaic Roman baths, as well as in Native American, Inca, Japanese and even Tibetan-influenced spaces. There is something here for everyone.
At the heart of the village of Saint-Julien, along the Sègre gorge, the sulfurous hot springs of Llo have much to offer: a large outdoor swimming pool equipped with hydro-jets, benches with bubbles and jets, a toning spa with fountains and hot tubs, a relaxing spa with lounge chairs, and even music. The brick and stone-built hot spring area indoors is designed in typical mountain style.
Les Bains de Llo
In the Pyrénées Orientales, hot springs are naturally 40°C (104°F) near the village of Dorres, in Cerdagne. We know that hot springs have existed here since Roman times, but they likely have been enjoyed since before civilization itself. Outdoors, two antique baths carved out of granite blocks complement the old washhouse and the new pool. A veritable historical experience made complete by 180-degree views from the Canigou to Sierra del Cadi.
Les Bains de Dorres
This well reputed destination in the heart of Ariège, is said to have the hottest springs in the Pyrenees at77°C (170 °F)! Ax-les-Thermes is also one of the few spas in France to stay open all year. Aside from its medical facilities, the spa offers two outdoor thermal pools built on two levels, with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
Les Bains du Couloubret
At 1,150 meters (3,773 feet) above sea level in the Pyrénées Orientales, there is a vast amphitheatre made of stone, which shelters three hot and sulfurous water basins. Equipped with jacuzzis and massage jets, these outdoor baths offer calming views of the surrounding forest. Indoors, three steam rooms, two hot tubs, and various treatment rooms complete the experience.
