Health And Beauty In Morzine
Visiting the mountains is not just about adrenaline fuelled descents, followed by booze fuelled dancing on tables. Sometimes you just have to stop and chill out, or simply take some time to be good to yourself. Morzine has lots of ways to do this, from sports massages, spa days and pamper sessions. In this post we go through all of our recommended options for health and beauty in Morzine.
Parc des Dérêches
The Parc des Dérêches is the big building at the bottom of the valley that runs through Morzine. It is open in both summer and winter. This is Morzine's swimming pool and leisure complex and is a great space for when you fancy a change from skiing and snowboarding. Many of our guests like to visit the Parc des Dérêches on bad weather days too.
The outdoor pool is open in the summer and has a huge outdoor space to soak up the sun from. The indoor pool is open in both winter and summer and has two kiddie splash pools. The complex also has a sauna and steam room area, which is perfect for some relaxation time. A visit to the spa is reasonably priced, but is included with the multi-pass during the summer season.
La Dahu Hotel & Spa
If you haven't visited La Dahu Hotel & Spa in Morzine, you are missing out. The spa has a whole range of treatments, including massages, facials, skin treatments, body scrubs and wraps. You can also choose between a number of relaxation packages to really unwind during your holiday.
You need to book your treatments before you go to the spa, but when you book, the nice people at La Dahu will drive you to and from your accommodation, to make life even easier.
Mountain Rehab is who we call when we need to get fixed. These guys have a wide range of services from physiotherapy and sports massage. The Mountain Rehab team are super knowledgable and have been treating holiday makers and Morzine locals for a long time. They offer a mobile service and will come to your chalet or apartment, but you can also visit their treatment rooms at the Aiglon. If you want to keep up your fitness routine while on holiday, you can use their gym or attend one of their fitness or yoga classes.
