Hello from Savoie
After visiting Chamonix in July, I wanted so much to come back to the Alpes. Fortunately, I had a chance to do that a few days ago. What to do there when it’s not the season, you may be asking…Yes, it’s true…it’s too early for skiing and too late for bikes, BUT it’s always good time for SPA. In my plans was a relaxing citybreak in thermal centres of Evian-les-Bains and Thonon-les-Bains that are so popular around the world.
Besides this, it’s such a pleasure to wander in the mountains and enjoy amazing landscapes.
I always prefer to book an apartment when away from home, but it was a last minute trip, so I booked quickly an apartment hotel Résidence Les Thermes in Thonon-les-Bains . The studio equipped with a kitchen was very comfortable. Moreover, this hotel is just a few minutes’ walk from spa centre Valvital.
On the road between Evian-les-Bains and Thonon-les-Bains there are a lot of supermarkets where you can buy some food. If you head from Thonon-les-Bains to Evian-les-Bains, there is also a very good boulangerie to buy some croissants.
If during your trip you happen to come to Abondance, note that you can eat tasty local food in a café which is just in front of tourist office.
I was lucky to visit thermal centres in both cities Evian-les-Bains and Thonon-les-Bains. I will talk more about this in “Beauty&Style” next week.
