ROOM FOR LAZINESS
"Laziness: a propensity to do nothing,
distaste for work,
physical or intellectual effort. "
"From this definition, you could ask whether being on holiday simply means reaching this state of ultimate laziness.
Deciding to stay in the Vosges is like agreeing to let yourself soak up the carefree atmosphere of your surroundings and allowing yourself to rest and relax."
Like a fish in water
It’s not very widely known, but Vittel and Contrexéville are actually in the Vosges. These towns - two of the top spa towns in France - have turned their healing waters into a source of vitality for all...
"Contrexéville, the capital of the slimming industry since 1979, is best known its wellness breaks entirely devoted to the figure. People come here to engage in physical activity, learn to rebalance their diet, or enjoy treatments at the spa.
The resort also offers treatments for metabolic and digestive disorders and urinary tract problems."
"Voted France’s favourite spa resort in 2014, Vittel continues to develop its offer of ever more attractive stays.
While the resort specialises in rheumatology, its also offers treatments for urinary and digestive disorders and weight loss. Individual nutrition consultations and conferences are offered alongside spa treatments. "
When it comes to spa treatments, the resorts of Bains-les-Bains and Plombières-les-Bains are equally noteworthy.
Established 2000 years ago, the spa at Plombières-les-Bains simply oozes history, with a focus on rheumatology and the digestive system. Spa treatments are still enjoyed in the same buildings that were used all those years ago. Napoleon himself played a part in helping the town take off as a spa.Explore
In Bains-les-Bains, it’s quite a different story. The town is known for the hot spring treatments valued by the Romans for their effectiveness in lowering blood pressure. It is the only spa to offer treatment for cardiovascular conditions alongside rheumatology. Recently restored, the resort still has some remains from the Gallo-Roman era, most notably some ancient mosaics.Explore
