The Thermal Spas of
Amélie-les-Bains is a little paradise for patients taking 'les soins' (the treatments). It's natural thermal spring waters (up to 62 degrees at source) are rumoured to have magical curative properties. Numerous sources flow down into the resort of Amélie-les-Bains supplying more than a million litres of thermal water per day. This natural water rich in sulphur, sodium chloride and carbonates is famed in the treatment of respiratory and rheumatic disorders. In France patients will be prescribed 'les soins' by their doctors for a realistic alternative to alleviate a wide range of adverse medical conditions. It is only recently that the spas have started offering relaxation and pampering packages into the bargain at very reasonable prices.
There are two spas presently open in Amélie-les-Bains; the thermal baths of Mondony and the Roman thermal baths.
Les Thermes du Mondony
This is the busier of the two buildings with up to 2,500 customers per day using its facilities. Open from 6 o'clock in the morning until 5 o'clock in the evening, it is a comparatively modern building providing all the standard services.
Les Thermes Romains
This spa was built upon the ancient site of the Roman baths and remains a classified building. It is the luxury version of the two spas and provides visitors with soft towels and general pampering of the highest order.
