The snow covered Pyrenees, very close to Loudenvielle. A short drive from here is one of the most heavenly places on earth the Balnea Centre. This beautiful spa is set in a valley in the Pyrenees. I went on a freezing day, changed into my swim stuff and lounged in the Japanese baths gazing up at the snow covered mountains outside. I could swim from the indoors to a heated pool outside, sat amongst the snow in my bikini. The spa also has a beautiful hammam and dry saunas with relaxing music. I also tried the thermal water which is said to be beneficial for skin and hair, it smelled rather eggy but afterwards I felt super soft all over. Wonderful.
