Carnac, in the south of Brittany: the land of the Korrigans, megaliths and hydrangeas in the windows. But this is also the land of the ocean and thalassotherapy. It’s a question of exposure: you cannot cross this area without becoming “tanked up” by the forces surrounding it: the same which whip the sails of ships, disperse the scent of the mimosas and brighten up women’s complexions.
Thalassotherapy at Carnac draws on these natural forces at their source and restores them to your body. Benefiting from both rain and sun, you will be offered a warm welcome by the beaches, the legendary figures of the forest of BrocÃ©liande and the 365 islands of the Gulf of Morbihan. Going away: it’s a bit like letting go…
Thalassotherapy at Carnac is known as one of the best in France for the quality of its treatments. At the institute, a sunny spot that is harmoniously arranged in a semicircle around the solarium, all treatment rooms are bathed in natural light.
The heated seawater swimming pool invites you to relax, take part in aquafitness and enjoy the sunlight. The magnificent hammam will bathe you in its moist vapours and an atmosphere devoted to relaxation and beauty. At the 200mÂ² gym body building equipment awaits: bicycles, rowing machines, step, treadmill … for greater fitness and muscle strength.
