Spa Balneotherapy

Spa Holiday or Balneotherapy includes a spa treatment that is to say with hot springs or with fresh water and a spa hotel for your accommodation.

Spa means Sanitas per Aqua and the International Spa Association (ISPA) then defines it as places "dedicated to improving overall well-being through a variety of professional services, which encourage the renewal of mind, body and spirit”.



It is called balneotherapy as well as spa; it is a care of hydrotherapy that does not use sea water, unlike thalassotherapy. Most of the time balneotherapy centers or the spas are located on the mountains and far from the sea: in the Alps, the Pyrenees, in the forests or may be near the cities.

Considering the recent and current more interest for natural medicines, an urban balneotherapy was actually born. Spa and balneotherapy centers appear in the cities to lessen pains of working people.



Between beauty parlors and health centers, these new urban spas are quite fashionable. Take your time to select and compare spas in order to find the spa holiday which best corresponds to your budget and yearnings.
