Brittany is just a short hop across the Channel but a relaxing spa and Thalasso break will make you feel like you’re in another world. Treat you and yours this Valentine’s day in Brittany.
Brittany, with its iodised sea air and invigorating climate, is a destination par excellence for wellness. Not only is it the birthplace of thalassotherapy, or seawater therapy, you can also take your pick from serene spas that offer a haven of luxurious tranquillity and well-earned time out. Treat yourself and your loved one to a short break in Brittany this Valentine’s day and discover a brand new you.
Beauty and luxury with a conscience
Yves Rocher is France’s godfather of plant-based beauty products and his name is synonymous with fresh, clean beauty. As you might expect, a log cabin at his eco hotel-spa, La Grée des Landes, just outside Brittany’s capital, Rennes, is not your average log cabin. Nestled under a 300-year-old cypress tree, you and your loved one have this luxurious little love nest to yourselves – with the attentive team from the maître d’ to the beauty therapist on standby for all your needs.
The Starry Night (Nuit Etoilée) package includes one night’s stay with breakfast served in the log cabin, a lunch or dinner in the Jardins Sauvages restaurant and a Sky and Earth treatment.
Brand new relaxation in 4-star style
The much anticipated Spa-Marin du Val André is now open. Val-André, known for its plush golf course, now throws open the doors of its four-star marine spa to all those looking for a relaxing retreat – with glorious sea views…
The Valentine’s (Saint Valentin) package offers three nights for the price of two in a deluxe, sea-view room and includes a relaxing modelage as well as a Jacuzzi session in their special twin treatment rooms.
Escape from it all to an island paradise
Brittany’s coast is studded with delightful little islands; the biggest is Belle Ile which translates as ‘beautiful island’ – and beautiful it is. For maximum indulgence, book you and your loved one into the Castel Clara and soak up the views that so inspired Claude Monet to paint. The Castel Clara offers a whole range of spa and thalassotherapy treatments to tailor make your own relaxing, romantic break and with coastal walks and uninterrupted views, you will come back feeling transformed.
The Saint Valentin package includes two nights’ accommodation in a sea-view room and a candlelit dinner for two including wine as well as the use of two bicycles for a day. Treatments are on option too during your stay.
