The Vichy Baths date to the times of The Roman conquest of what is now France when Julius Caesar discovered “Vichy” water or literally “hot cross” meaning warm water crossing their path. The story relates that Caesar’s horses, depleted of minerals from the hard pace they had kept, drank the water and became immediately stronger. A spa was established in the center of France called “Vichy” by the Romans that exists to this day.
While we recommend that you come and stay several days at our property so you can enjoy all that it has to offer, we realize that you may only be able to get away for a couple of hours of relaxation and enjoyment. We open our property to the public for day use and welcome you to explore our Vichy Baths, pools and trails. Be sure to book a Spa treatment in advance to get the entire relaxation experience.
Indulge in a relaxing massage while at Vichy Hot Springs, enjoy the Bubbly “Vichy Baths”, Beauty Baths, soak up the sun and relax by the resort pool. If you love nature take a walk through 700 acres of private reserve.
