Thermal Spa at La Roche-Posay

La Roche-Posay is the leading European centre and spa town for the treatment of skin related problems, such as eczema. This was brought about by recognition of the unusual healing qualities of the natural spring water that is freely available in the town centre.

Napoleon in fact built his first hospital here in 1701 as the water was found to be extremely beneficial to healing the burns of his soldiers. Thermal baths are located on the high street in La Roche-Posay and there are many clinics and spa centres providing skin cures with special treatments of 3 weeks duration.

The region of Vienne boasts several golf courses including one actually located in La Roche-Posay (Golf du Connétable) and the town's racecourse attracts approximately 17,000 racegoers every year (Hippodrome de la Gatiniere).

Cherry Lodge is ideally situated as a base for touring this beautiful part of France. Whether strolling the elegant streets of La Roche-Posay, well furnished with restaurants and cafes which play a very welcoming host to visitors from all over Europe, or perhaps exploring the wine growing areas of the Loire with its many Chateaux and of course the fine distilleries of Cognac; there truly is something for every type of holidaymaker.
