  • We have enjoyed our 2 hours of relaxation in the large bathroom. Everything was open and the temperature of the pools, as well as the status of each area were identified by the entrance to the top (on foot by the village). I loved the different basins and different temperatures, and I recommend strongly three Roman baths on the left for the experience, the last wake up! The view of the outdoor pool is sublime and the staff was very welcoming and we explained the operation. The only downside is the faded paintings that lack a bit of attention especially in such a beautiful place!

  • We had a good time to relax but serious refreshments are needed because the place is sorely lacking maintenance:-the Roman Trilogy: walls Flake blatantly - out of many bubble beds have been replaced by vulgar metal plates without bubbles - there seemed to be jets of water coming out of the ceiling of the torrent of outside, when we look at Some are missing, some are full of limestones and in any case they are not in working condition - swans inside collars work sometimes and sometimes not... - nozzles jaccuzzi or Assize bubble that did not have other points of improvements:-do showers common men women (most centers like the one above have shared showers) - a place supposed to be calming and relaxing , and so silent if one reads the Panel arriving, as well as repeated at each place inside... families with children do not frankly this silence and it's pretty moving, lifeguards should also police to noise - we won't tell us nothing to hospitality, nor than the time is charged, or that time is numbered , or we are told that there are baths Irish romano that for adults in extra short a lot of improvements to make it a place perfect

  • Location by a CSD staff untrained in the reception of the public which, yet, offers it access to a summer job. The facilities lack maintenance without counting those down. Suddenly the price/quality ratio is very negative compared to other aquatic centres of the same type.

  • Very nice public bath, has indoor and outdoor winter pools, with water up to 40 degrees C, a restaurant and a terrace. However, men cannot get it with regular bathing shorts (short pants style), they need the tight shorts. They can buy it from the pool shop for 17 eur. Also, kids only have access in the pool until 1PM.
  • Fun but they have strict rules about the bathing suits check the website before you come
  • It was not my favorite to strict, to many rules, everything is forbidden. I found it expensive. For me it's not for kids, mainly adults. I would not go back. I prefer the pool in Briancon, fun for kids, it has adult area, nice indoor slide. Half price, nice staff
  • This place is a SCAM, A RIP OFF, A DUMP! Don't take my word for it, here are some reasons from the top of my head: 1. Regardless of what type of shorts/etc you have, they're not ok, staff tells you "sorry you're not allowed in those. But don't worry! You can buy the correct ones from our boutique!" but no explanation why not. Worst part is they tell you this only after you paid, when you're inside and already showered and wet, so you don't have any choice but buy their swimming suit. 2. The WC doesn't have a toilet seat. In the men's room if you want to sit you have to sit directly on the wc (which is full of everyone else's urine), and you don't have anything to at least wash it with. 3. They don't allow you to bring anything inside, not even slippers (and the floor is very cold), towels, something to drink or eat (not even a small snack). Their argument might be hygiene, but read #2 and #4 4. There's no place to rest between spa pools, just some marble uncomfortable beds (and as mentioned you can't even put a towel on them, not even in the sauna, so you'll just have to sit in everyone else's sweat). 5. Some of the zones/saunas don't work or work incorrectly. For example, one of the pools was supposed to have 32 degrees hot water, but when I stepped into it I almost had a heart attack due to the water being freezing cold. 6. The hair dryers are on the walls and flow air vertically down, thus you need to stick your head on the wall so you can dry up. And much, much more. I'll never go back here again.
  • Good but expensive. Not as nice as the Nordic baths.
