Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline, originating in ancient India, whose goal is the attainment of a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquillity. It isn’t for the faint hearted and you can expect to push yourself as much as you feel is right for you.

Thermal Spas & CuresBains de Couloubret in Ax les Thermes

Les Bains de Couloubret

Why not treat yourself in the new thermal spa at Ax les Thermes which has top marks from our guests - and us! It costs 20€ for an adult and 16€ for a child but there are family offers available for the 2-hour session. This is 20 minutes from Chez Arran and has indoor and outdoor pools and a wide variety of jets, jacuzzi and sauna. Various kinds of massage are available with advance booking. In the height of the season, it can be worthwhile arriving at a less popular time to avoid queuing as reservation isn't possible for general baths entry.  The perfect way to relax after a mountain walk or ski.


Ussat les Bains Spa is more treatment rather than a leisure focused spa but is placed next to a beautiful park in tranquille surroundings.

L’eau d’Ussat est dite « sulfatée, calcique et magnésienne » car ce sont là les éléments chimiques qui prédominent. Elle est également silicatée et oligo-métallique en raison des nombreux oligoéléments qu’elle contient, comme le lithium. Plusieurs siècles de pratique thermale à Ussat-les-Bains ont permis de constater que cette eau est antispasmodique, sédative, équilibrante, reminéralisante et cicatrisante.

We are perfectly poised, just a 7-minute walk from the baths as a lodging for the classic French 3-week cure and we offer discounts to "curists."

We offer special 3-week deals. There is also aqua aerobics available and morning coffee/breakfast available there. During the winter it is closed and will now re-open on the 27 March 24.
