Due to its size, it is a destination that offers a great diversity of natural landscapes:

  1. crossed by many majestic rivers
  2. the territory extends to the north in gentle hills
  3. endless plains

The mountains rise to the southwest and offer travellers a multitude of peaceful lakes and happy rivers for swimming. One of France's wonders lies in the diversity of its maritime coastline: in the north, in the North Sea, in the west on the Atlantic Ocean and in the south on the Mediterranean Sea.

A real jewel of the Atlantic coast, the Quiberon peninsula awaits you for your next health and well-being vacation. In an absolutely unique location, you will find many active leisure facilities and you can enjoy and relax in optimal conditions. On one side, Quiberon Bay invites you to swim and relax with its fine sandy beaches, while the "Wild Coast" challenges the ocean on the Atlantic coast with its rough and rugged cliffs as its name suggests.

In the Mediterranean, you can relax on the Isle of Beauty and admire the magnificent landscape between sea, sky and mountains so characteristic of Corsica. Enjoy a breathtaking view of the impressive rocky coves while walking along the shores of the Mediterranean. Stroll along small hidden sandy beaches and you won't be blamed for a long swim in the blue waters of the Mediterranean.

In reference to the Latin expression "sanitas per aqua", which means "health by water", the goal was to bring together in one center the practice of all the ancestral care of the whole world practiced for millennia , by adding hydrotherapy, including a traditional hammam, which aims to prepare the body to receive skin care (scrubs and wraps), body massages, as well as relaxation and letting go of the skin. 

It was around the year 1995 that the concept of the spa center of well-being is imported in France by the luxury hotel industry, then it is at the beginning of the years 2000 that the first "day Spa" is born. For 5 years, spa treatments are more and more requested, we can now find spa centers in the classic hotel industry, in urban centers and in rural areas, but also for a few months in the hospitality industry. open air and bed and breakfast. Some centers will offer geographical themes in correlation with the care provided.

You can find Oriental, Asian, Indian, etc. Spas. ; but the novelty is the appearance of centers keeping the authenticity of the region in which they are, we also encourage you to frequent these places which can be Spas Provencal, Normans, Alsatians, etc. The result of ancestral techniques, Spa treatments are delivered mainly by practitioners graduated in aesthetics and trained in massage, by a deep knowledge of the human body.

Most of the health spas in France offer a treatment card composed of massages (non-therapeutic wellness massages), water treatments are always present to remind you that water in all its forms (liquid or vapor) remains a a major and universal element of well-being, in the context of the preparation of the body and the skin before the care delivered ...

The essence of the Spa concept is a comprehensive and individual approach to the person. Based on traditional medicines and traditions, the spa concept considers being as a whole to achieve a balance of body and mind to achieve well-being. That's why some spa centers are working through Chinese or Indonesian treatments to reconcile your yin and yang (harmony of energies).

The health spas in France truly correspond to the aspirations of our modern societies with its procession of authenticity, homecoming and Zen philosophy.

To act simultaneously by combining massage, relaxation and beauty, is the certainty of successful spa treatments! The Spa is synonymous with letting go in a refined setting, with a health card largely inspired by world travel.

Energy harmonization as well as multi-sensory awareness are inseparable features of health spas in France.
