Pré Saint Didier thermal spa
Close to the lovely town of Courmayeur and less than an hour from Chamonix through the Mont Blanc Tunnel into Italy are the thermal baths of Pré Saint Didier, the perfect day trip in winter or summer. The springs here have been known and enjoyed since Roman times and people have been coming here to “take the waters” for medicinal purposes since the 1600s. The current building dates back 1834 and has been a major attraction in the area for over 150 years.
Enjoy a whole complex which includes 3 outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor saunas, a Turkish bath, relaxation rooms with chromotherapy and aromatherapy and a veranda with a panoramic view of Mont Blanc. All the outdoor pools command incredible mountain views and there is nothing more magical than lying in the warm thermal waters in winter, surrounded by snow on the ground and snow-capped peaks! And of course it’s equally as spectacular in the summer, sunbathing on loungers whilst taking in the scenery.
The naturally heated waters have a temperature which fluctatuates slightly between 36°C and 37°C and they are said to have many wonderful properties – detoxifying, anti-stress, toning, relaxing and anti-inflammatory to help you keep a good physical condition.
The price of entrance includes the use of bathrobe, towel, flip flops and a lovely buffet with healthy snacks of fruit and vegetables, bread, breadsticks, infusions and fruit juices – so all you need to bring is your swimsuit and you really can spend all day there if you want to! Extra treatments such as massages can be booked for an additional fee.
All year round, you can book a Chamonix All Year day trip to the spas of Pré Saint Didier. In winter, combine skiing in Courmayeur with a spa pamper session in the evening or take a summer trip across the border to indulge in an Italian wine and cheese tour before relaxing at the spa in the afternoon. All day trip prices include transport and tunnel pass, and ensure that you can really relax while we do all the organising.
Please note that children under the age of 14 are not allowed in the spa centre.
