Courmayeur originally developed as a tourist resort with a focus on wellness.
Towards the end of the 1600s the healing properties of the mineral waters that gushed out in the vicinity were recognized. Thus, when skiing, mountaineering, golf and cycling did not yet exist, Courmayeur became a destination above all for spa tourism. Today, not much remains of this past, overtaken by the tourist activities linked to the position at the foot of Mont Blanc. But wellness and body care continue to be important for Courmayeur’s tourist vocation, favored by a large number of spas and wellness centers.
Le terme di Pré-Saint-Didier
When it comes to wellness, spas come to mind.
Unique of their kind are the famous Terme of Pré-Saint-Didier, located a short distance from the beginning of the La Thuile valley, about 6 km by car from Courmayeur.
The sources of mineral waters have been known since Roman times for their healing properties. Today, the spa is housed in the recently restored nineteenth-century building of the Casino.
Inside, spaces have been created with whirlpools, saunas, steam baths, mud baths. These include special treatments, such as invigorating waterfalls, relaxation pools, chromotherapy rooms and panoramic relaxation rooms. Outside there is a garden with outdoor thermal pools and saunas from where you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the Mont Blanc group.
At the other end of the Aosta Valley you can also try the Terme of Saint Vincent, although not as close at hand from Courmayeur as those of Pré-Saint-Didier.
Wellness centers in Courmayeur
Various wellness centers have been built within the main hotels in the area, some of which are also open to external customers. Among these: Grand Hotel Royal and Golf, Hotel Club Mont Blanc, Hotel Gran Baita. Still others are about to open in large, newly built hotels.
Within the vast complex of the Courmayeur Sport Center there is a body care center with sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpool, solarium, face and body treatments, facial treatments, massages, etc. In addition, some spaces specially equipped with machines and exercise equipment are dedicated to gymnastics and fitness.
Still on the subject of “wellness” it is worth mentioning the “barefooting” path in Morgex. Walking barefoot on a 600 m path whose bottom is made up of different materials in terms of roughness, consistency and temperature.
The Aigle Hotel has a fitness area on the ground floor. The environment is equipped with various machines and accessories to keep fit: mats, weights, elastic bands, barbells, exercise bikes, treadmills, rowing machines, etc. It also has a sauna with its changing room. However, there is no real wellness center, with swimming pool, massages, etc. For this purpose various structures in the surrounding area can supply, with some of which we have stipulated agreements and concessions for our customers.
In 5 minutes by car from the hotel you can reach the Courmayeur Sport Center, which in addition to the various spaces for sports activities includes a large wellness center.
From the hotel, in just about 15 minutes by car you can reach the Terme of Pré-Saint-Didier. Thanks to a special agreement, our guests have the opportunity to make a reservation, which allows them to enter without queuing and to take advantage of special discounts.
An experience to try just 20 ‘from the hotel is the “barefooting” path in Morgex.
