and recharge.

                A walk through a dewy meadow? A massage with hot stones? A bath with
                soothing whey? A professional fitness check? If you are looking for the
                extraordinary and want to spend a few days off the beaten track, away from
                the centres of mass tourism, you will find everything you need for your
                wellbeing here. We offer tailor-made wellness, fitness exercises for every
                need, and the healing energy of nature. Discover the fascination of our
                mountain world. We will show you the most beautiful places that are ideal
                for achieving personal wellbeing.

           Warm drops of water are trickling, dripping and crackling on your
           skin. No, you are not walking in the rain. You are lying under
           a Vichy shower and soft hands are massaging you. The tingling
           feeling on your skin is wonderful! Or maybe you would prefer
           a scented body peeling, or a foot reflexology massage? And then
           enjoy a glass of spring water. You will experience yourself with
           all your senses.

            As soon as you awaken you will get a sensation of nature. When
            you open your window, you will not only let the sun into your
            room, but also the scent of the meadows and forests. And have
            you ever taken a rose petals bath? Dream sweet dreams.
            Or relax in the sauna. A few drops of eucalyptus in the infusion
            inspire you to breathe deeply – and all of a sudden you feel
            refreshed and alive.
