Le centre Thermal sera ouvert du 1er Avril au 9 novembre 2024.

A hydrotherapy treatment is a good time to learn how to better manage your condition on a daily basis, improve your quality of life or simply talk to other hydrotherapy patients with the same condition. The Avène Thermal Centre offers you a choice of Therapeutic Patient Education (TPE) programmes for personalised support or unit workshops to be chosen according to your needs and desires.
