The word sauna is an ancient Finnish word whose etymology is not entirely clear, but which, probably, could have been originally related to the meaning of winter dwelling. To have a sensation of greater heat, steam was produced by throwing water on stones that had already become hot on the fire.

What is a sauna used for?

The purpose of a sauna is to warm up your body. Saunas can be used in a number of ways. Some people say the best time for a sauna is after working out, while others prefer to save saunas as a relaxing experience reserved for a vacation or spa experience. Others may use them for health reasons under the supervision of a doctor.

Traits of history of the sauna

Roman and Greek bathhouses led the way to the sauna spas of today. Originally, these were intended to purify and detox the body but evolved into social meeting places.

The Turkish Hammam was a type of communal, gender-specific bathhouse built inside intricately designed buildings. These were important for social and spiritual gatherings and became an integral part of socialization for both men and women.

Native American sweat lodges are also a type of sauna, being a place to sweat, pray, and connect spiritually.


The ideal place to spend your holiday at the foot of Mont Blanc, a stone’s throw from Courmayeur and the tunnel, with the comfort of a 3-star hotel. A paradise for skiing, hiking, sport and relax, in front of the most beautiful mountain in Europe.
