A wellness area to heal your mind, body & soul
Water world at the « Nature-Spa »
This luxurious place opens onto a vegetation wall and a rain shower, and into relaxing quietness.
Then towards the indoor pools (33 °C) with hydro-massage course and beach micro-bubbling jets: water, sensations and peaceful silence.
Outside, a natural basin filtered by plants (biotop). You can dive in or sit on the small pontoons and let their feet dangle in the water, enjoying the feeling and benefits of pure water on the skin.
Summer and winter, on the terrace of the “Pool-Family”, you can also enjoy a large pool-jacuzzi stainless steel with micro-bubbling system and heated to approx. 34 ° C.
Opposite the large indoor pool is a wooden hot water bath (36 °C), a large barrel with a fireplace awaiting those who really feel the cold for a warm and intimate moment.
The Spa also features sensory showers with varying water temperatures, a polar bath an a copper fountain of ice to stimulate the blood circulation.
Europe’s largest flotarium here on offer: a water tank filled with water and 4 tons of Epsom salt for a unique sensory experience.
Well-being is in the air in La Cheneaudière :
For your total relaxation, 5 saunas, including a Finnish sauna (+80 °C) and 1 steam room are awaiting you in the ” Nature -Spa ” wellbeing area:
- The sauna ” Sledge ” (+70 °C) refers to the wooden sleds typical of Alsace and the Vosges. It offers panoramic views through its huge glass window and allows you to relax in sleds or wooden swings.
- The sauna “Tonneau” (+75 ° C) outside, with view on the forest
- The wet heat “sanarium” (+55 ° C) ideal for children or people who can not withstand the high temperatures of saunas
- Both ” Kraxenofen ” hay saunas (+45 °C) typically offer lower back, back and neck relaxation. With its large variety of flowers, this organic hay releases coumarin, whose virtues calm the mind and stimulate the body.
The large steam – hive is a nod to the «Simples et Miel» (Plants & Honey) range of beauty products. Guests can nestle in alcoves like in the alveoli of a hive.
The kingdom of letting go : Sense, breathe, feel, listen … Let yourself go into daydreaming, take the time to take the time …
To make you feel the wonderful energy of this magical nature, terraces have been set here and there… All forms of relaxation await you: two tepidariums (heated daybeds), wrap-up beds, couches shaped like wooden barrels or outdoor suspended bed…
Absolute nature: ” Plants and Honey”, unique and authentic
The range of natural cosmetics ” Simples et Miel ” created by Mireille François .

Our treatments are elaborated with fresh produce : organic milk, organic cottage cheese, honey from the village, garden herbs, regional plants …
