Aix-les-BainsFrance

A spa town in the heart of the Alps, Aix-les-Bains combines the charm of the mountains with relaxation and well-being.

Located on the shores of Lake Bourget, against a mountain setting, the well-known Riviera of the Alps is full of natural riches, starting with the hot springs it is famous for. A holiday in Aix-les-Bains promises to rejuvenate you!

“Oh lake! "As Lamartine exclaimed before Lake Bourget in his most famous poem, visitors will echo his cry from the heart when admiring the largest natural lake of glacial origin in France. Whether it's for a romantic walk, a swim, a cruise or a water sports session, everyone can find their own way to enjoy the waters of Lake Bourget. And if water sports aren’t for you, the mountain and all it offers is just outside Aix-les-Bains.

As the name suggests, thermal baths represent the other activity that flows from the springs. In a natural setting perfect for rest and contemplation, in the Belle Époque, the upper classes frequented Aix-les-Bains to take the waters. This success is not out-of-date these days and tourists continue to flock to enjoy regenerating thermal treatments.

Surrounded by this natural beauty, culture also has its presence. Many shows, concerts, exhibitions and other cultural events are organised in the city, whether in the Grand Circle Casino, with its Italian theatre that is over 100 years old, the Congress Centre or the Verdure Theatre. Set in an ancient Gallo-Roman temple, the Lapidaire Museum specialises in archaeology and includes a collection of statues and ancient relics.

Located between Chambéry and Annecy, Aix-les-Bains benefits from a large road network, while the motorway A41 runs along the city. Only 3 miles to the south, Chambéry-Savoie airport provides flights to major UK cities. The city also has a train station, in particular including a TGV line to reach Paris. If driving by car is not for you, the 20 or so bus routes and cycle tracks are good alternatives.

Between aquatic delights and joys of the mountains, the destination of Aix-les-Bains certainly knows how to provide a variety of pleasures!
