Taking a spa treatment in the Landes means filling up on good energy and taking advantage of the benefits of the mud and hot water, known for their therapeutic effects since ancient times. Here is a small overview of the Landes spa towns to discover during your camping holiday!
40 km from the Eurosol campsite, on the banks of the Adour river, Grand Dax (Dax and Saint-Paul-lès-Dax), is the first spa town in Europe, known since Roman times. The quality of its thermal water, its mud with medicinal virtues called “Peloide” and its thermal treatments have made it THE destination par excellence for people taking the waters. The symbol of the spa, the Hot Fountain, or Nèhe spring, named after a Celtic water goddess, was built at the beginning of the 19th century on the site of the old Roman baths in the centre of Dax. Renowned since antiquity for its therapeutic properties, the water rises from the ground at a temperature of 64 degrees between the arches of the Tuscan-inspired portico.
45 minutes from the Eurosol campsite, on the banks of the Adour, the charming spa village of Préchacq-les-Bains attracts many curists and visitors. Located about ten kilometres from Dax, facing the forest, the resort has no less than five naturally hot springs, rich in sulphur and calcium. Rheumatism and respiratory tract ailments are treated there, thanks in particular to a vegetal-mineral mud deposited by the Adour floods.
In just a few years, the small Landes resort of Saubusse has reinvented thermalism. Located 45 km from the campsite, this former trading port on the Adour is now a very soothing spa destination, appreciated for its “Zen” and family atmosphere. The thermal waters of the spa village are particularly effective in treating rheumatological and phlebological ailments. Try the Landes massage, the speciality of Saubusse!
Nestled in a very natural setting, at the crossroads of the Landes, the Gers and the Béarn, Eugénie-les-Bains is a spa resort that appeals to lovers of sport, history, heritage and gastronomy, thanks in particular to the talents of the starred chef Michel Guérard. If you didn’t know it yet, Eugénie-les-Bains is THE Landes village that invented slimming through care, nature and…food! As for the thermal baths, they treat arthritis and rheumatism, as well as urinary and digestive problems.
