Landes thermalisme - Campagne France 2019

The Landes and Dax, the top spa destinations in France

In Nouvelle-Aquitaine, it's impossible to talk about thermal cures without mentioning the Landes, which also happens to be the leading spa department in France.

With 5 spa resorts, each with its unique style, there's plenty to choose from in the Landes between thermal cures, mini-spas and fitness breaks. All these health stays promise a moment of intense relaxation that will have lasting effects. A wide range of locations and establishments sit ready to meet your expectations: the Le Splendid Hôtel and Spa in Dax, Maison Guérard in Eugénie-les-Bains to mention just a couple.

Situated less than half an hour from the ocean and on the edge of the forest, near the Chalosse region, Dax remains the spearhead for thermal cures in the Landes. The first spa complex was built here in 1894. Clemenceau, Sarah Bernhardt, Sacha Guitry and celebrities from all walks of life contributed to giving a prestigious touch to thermalism in Dax. Every year this welcoming town hosts many fêtes and festivals that really bring this land of gentleness and well-being to life.

But what's so special about “Grand Dax” that it's become a land of well-being? The secret lies in the reputation of its fertile soil, extremely rich in Pelloid (thermal mud) and the curative virtues of its waters: the two combined make this resort the leading spa destination in France.
