A great place to spend a couple of hours and wash away all your aches and pains. Very clean and modern and value for money (€17 for 2 hours) with numerous spa features including a sulphur steam room that really clears the tubes!

We used to own a house in the Languedoc region of France and visited Les Bains on several occasions and at different times of the year. It never failed to disappoint. From relaxing in one of the many hot tubs to immersing in an icy plu.nge pool it was a great experience

These hot baths are well worth a visit, they offer good value for money, though I'd recommend bringing your own towel to keep the cost reasonable. Over the two visits I made, I found the pools wonderfully relaxing and varied in temperature and features (though I must say my second visit to the Irlando-romain bath, which was my favourite on...

So, was a bit disappointed. For two adults it cost €34 + €10 for towels and I felt a bit cheated. Clearly the building was fairly modern but after a few years use and little maintenance it is looking a bit worse for wear. For example, in the outdoor pools there were inlaid stones missing from underwater walls leaving sharp... More

We thank you for contacting us and sharing your remarks, though we are deeply concerned that you find the safety unsatisfactory.The baths are indeed modern (they opened in 2009), but because natural sulphur thermal water can damage installations, are closed twice a year for full technical revision. If anything untowards occurs when the baths are open (sharp edges in pools,... More

We spent an afternoon here, lovely warm pool with various sections with different jets to massage you, including overhead and underfoot jets. There was a separate 38 degree pool (bliss) and steam room, cold pools, hammam, an outside pool you can swim through a tunnel to get to. You can also book treatments. As we were staying at the Residence... More

The baths feature lukewarm pools, including ones outdoors, which are fine for awhile. However, even the "caldarium" -- hot tub -- had water that was only warm, not hot nor soothing and was very small. The top floor sauna, which is also small, was the only place with heat.

Really neat facility: a very attractive (WARM) main pool and main level suitable for everyone including families with children. Kids liked testing out the jets, different shower heads etc. in the main pool, along with the cold room, steam room etc etc... On the top floor is restricted to over 16 years. We also reserved treatments / massages and enjoyed... More

My wife and I travel the world in our retirement and we always try to find great hot springs. This facility is at least as good as any we have visited from New Zealand to Central America to Alaska to Turkey. The price (€17 for 2 hours) is great. One major issue for me. I like the water at 40C.... More

Its a great idea but wait till you see the 1-hr waiting lines during vacation times. Buying tickets in advance won't help go faster. Ladies sitting there unable to estimate waiting times based on their experience... ID documents necessary for children entrances and renting towels... There are more interdiction signs on the walls than signs actually setting expectations (like estimated... More

This spa is just great, very relaxing. I am not a skier but I enjoyed walking the snow trails--came back feeling all tired but exhilarated. Next day, we went to this spa and now this was the cherry on the cake, so fantastically relaxing on sore muscles. We did all the pools and saunas and caledarium and whatever-ium, and hammam....
