Ready for a break after a game?
Thalassotherapy centres invite you to indulge yourself in the treatment of your choice by the seaside, whether for golfers after a game or their partners’ enjoyment while they’re busy on the links.
The region is the birthplace of thalassotherapy and has some of the finest spa centres scattered all around the coast and offers a host of natural health-giving resources: invigorating sea air, seawater, sea mud and seaweed.
Surrounded by the sea, Brittany boasts some 1,700 miles of coastline and an ideal maritime climate that comes complete with bracing breezes. Brittany has all the essential ingredients required to exploit the restorative power of the ocean for medicinal and therapeutic purposes.
Although simply breathing the marine air is invigorating, scattered around the northern, western and southern coasts of Brittany are more than a dozen top quality thalassotherapy centres that offer a wide range of treatments. Qualified therapists treat disorders, relieve stress and enhance beauty.
While traditionally, pampering pleasures were thought of as the reserve of the plus ones rather than those wearing the plus fours, things have thankfully changed. Golfers with their weary limbs and aching muscles will without a doubt appreciate the soothing benefits of a massage or a long soak in heated seawater after a gruelling day on the links. Who knows, thalassotherapy might even have a cure for three-putting!
Try the five star Hotel des Thermes situated in Saint-Malo, a 5000m² thalassotherapy spa with 80 individual hydrotherapy and physiotherapy cabins, 16 private spa cabins, six sea-water pools and over 40 years of therapeutic expertise.
Find the Dinard Novotel Thalasso in the heart of its extensive English-style gardens, just in front of the sea. Enjoy the hotel’s thalassotherapy suite and dive into the heated pool before trying out the benefits of the sauna and steam-room.
Or head to Carnac Thalasso & Spa Resort, where an increasingly lavish range of treatments and cures is offered: long-stay packages are available for fitness, slimming, active beauty, post-natal care, or there are mid-week cures such as ‘Intermède des sens’ (Interlude for the senses). Try the relaxing treatments in the ‘Absolue sensation’ cure offered at the Beauty Spa, then cross to the Marine Spa and enjoy some leisure time in the midst of a tropical garden. For your gourmet breaks, head towards one of the 4 restaurants on site, including one for health food.
For an unforgettable experience, try the Spa Marin du Val André Thalasso Resort. Inspired by the luxurious seaside palaces of the 1930’s, this new hotel will offer you some special moments of pure pleasure and well-being.
