Balaruc, capital of well-being

The first spa resort in France, Balaruc-les-Bains is located in the Thau lagoon, an exceptional territory in many ways, on the edge of the Mediterranean.

Its thermal establishment, like the town, is anchored on the edge of the lake, facing Mont Saint Clair. Whether you come for a medical treatment or a spa stopover, over a few days, you will be welcomed in the best conditions, for a truly optimal and serene treatment experience.

By staying at Pech d'Ay, you are barely a quarter of an hour's walk or 5 minutes by bike from your spa, via the Promenade des Bains!
