There’s nothing like an old recipe using ingredients offered by nature to take care of your health and to escape routine: fine weather, sunshine, clean air, clear waters, and plants and algae with therapeutic properties. You can depend on it. It may be at a thermal resort or a spa, by the sea or in the mountains.

There are different health and well-being programmes suitable for everyone. These relaxing moments, indispensable for restoring balance, can be undertaken in different ways.
