Sometimes in the morning when we wake up and are trying to work out where to go today I just pick a place on the map that jumps out at me. Today was one of those days!

What a gem of a place!

Architecturally its quite a juxtaposition with a very obviously old and new part. Both beautiful but for very different reasons.

The gardens in the centre held some amazing plants and flowers.

We also got to get up close and personal with a French spa for the first time. Its so odd!! No photos inside but some of the literature to show you how it works.

No photo description available.

UK spas are all about chilling and reading books while having treatments etc…(at least in my experience they are!) French spas are all about total health benefits. They offered courses in nutrition and posture plus under water bikes and a labyrinth of water based walk ways to move around in. No where to laze away the day but lots of activity to get the most out of your immersion in the vitality rich waters!

Seems this place was super popular and not vastly expensive to get in! Every Wednesday at 3.30 you can also pay €3 for a guided tour to see what its all about!
