Thermal cure

Gréoux would not be Gréoux without its “baths”. Thermal baths have been seducing people since the Celtic era. The Romans used these waters gushing out of the rocks by building conduits and wells. Although the ancient Roman baths are no longer visible today, their memory remains in the village legend since, upon their return from the Crusades, the Templars built the emblematic hospital-castle on the village hill with stones from the Roman baths.

Open from March to December, the Gréoux-les-Bains thermal baths treat rheumatism and respiratory tract diseases. In total, a panel of 35 treatments is provided in two departments, by attentive staff.

The thermal baths also offer a specific post breast cancer rehabilitation cure (on fixed dates) and a specific lumbago program in addition to a thermal cure. In addition, the establishment has a thermal spa dedicated to well-being as well as a beauty salon.
