The baths include a 2 ½ hour experience, covering preparation, regeneration and relaxation and where you transition from the steam room to the hot outside baths sampling different naturally heated thermal water pools.
This is a beautiful part of the Alps. If you have time spend some time driving around the local pretty villages, characterized by traditional wooden chalets and working farms, and which include numerous traditional restaurants to sample. And if that really is not enough you can also pop over to Italy, only an hour’s drive away through the Mont Blanc tunnel.
