Spas: the health-bringing waters

Feel like relaxing? The canton of Vaud has several wellness centres and two magnificent spas that are among the most famous in Europe: Lavey-les-Bains, located in a magnificent setting at the foot of the mountains, has been fully renovated as a complete wellness centre; and Yverdon-les-Bains, whose the hot springs were discovered way back in Roman times and which today hosts a rehabilitation and wellness complex.

Numerous hotels and palaces in the region also provide modern wellness and rehabilitation centres right out of the top drawer. The Cinq Mondes spa at the Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne has also been named one of the most beautiful spas on the planet by Forbes.com.

They are both ideal ways to upgrade a stay in the region or take a break to regenerate after a week at work, or even to enjoy a therapeutic wellness course lasting several days.

What’s more, the big hotels in the region have facilities to help their guests relax in magnificent spas and health centres.
