After skiing or hiking, in both summer and winter, the sulphurous waters are the ideal way to relax and recuperate.
Ideal after a day of strenuous effort, as well as for skin problems and rheumatism, the virtues of the thermal springs have been recognised for centuries—the waters were known and sought-after even in Roman times.
Les bains de Dorres
Built outdoors, among the trees, with a sumptuous view of the peaks of the Eastern Pyrenees, the Bains de Dorres hot spring baths offer nature lovers a moment of pure rest and relaxation. Whatever the weather, the water is always at 38 °C in the two outdoor pools, soothing tired muscled even when the ambient air drops below freezing in winter. The warm feeling persists long after you finally decide to dry off!
A hot bath in a granite pool
The two outdoor baths (one old, one new) are complemented by two antique baths carved into granite blocks. They are sheltered by a small building closed-in on three sides. After a day of hiking or skiing at the local resorts, a one-hour bath in the Dorres thermal springs will sooth away the aches and pains of the most hardened of athletes.
The Bains de Llo
Nestled between the mountains and the river, the Bains de Llo offer lots of facilities for your well being, including a sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, and individual treatments.
