As the snow melts and the Alps begin to welcome hikers rather than skiers, it’s an ideal time to enjoy some inter-seasonal pampering. Fly in on a Geneva helicopter transfer to indulge in an ultimate day of relaxation in an alpine oasis. We’ve selected three of our favourite destinations to help you indulge your senses and heal both body and mind this spring.
Courchevel is one of the most luxurious places to relax, rejuvenate and escape the rat race and in late spring there is no better address than Aquamotion, Europe’s largest waterpark in the mountains. It’s the best environment for swimming, working out, beauty treatments and stress relief. It is located at Grandes Combes between Courchevel Village and Courchevel Moriond and offers spa treatments with Algotherm, a pioneer in marine cosmetics. Treatments include skin detoxes, and balneotherapy in whirlpool baths, Vichy showers, essential oil domes and hydrojets.
Annecy’s idyllic lakeside setting is therapy enough, but it also has some good spas with a range of treatments and is an easy day trip destination for a Geneva helicopter transfer. Les Trésoms Lake and Spa Resort is a haven of relaxation. The terrace overlooks Lake Annecy and the mountains beyond making it an ideal place to unwind. The 200 m² area has a balneotherapy pool, 11 massage stations, a Moorish-style hammam, Scandinavian sauna, 7 treatment rooms including two couples’ cabins where massages, scrubs, wraps and other treatments are provided.
Further south, Serre Chevalier is a popular family ski area. The town of Briançon is the beating heart of the resort and a recommended destination in its own right, no matter the season. The fortified old town is a wonderful place to lose yourself for a day and overflows with character and atmosphere. When it’s time to warm up, Les Grands Bains du Monêtier is a luxurious thermal resort in the close village of Le Monêtier-les-Bains. For early spring, the indoor pool has a Jacuzzi, bubble beds, underwater shower columns and spouts, as well as a steam room and musical grotto. For late spring visits, the outdoor pool is 300 m² in size and includes fountain jets, a river chute and relaxation zones. It’s Health & Beauty Institute has a menu of treatments that includes luxury scrubs, face and body treatments and hydrotherapy care.
