The place :
Caldea is a unique and innovative spot for spa treatments. Its architecture recalls two thousand years of multicultural influences, from Japan to Ancient Rome, and from the Arabic world to Finland.
The atmosphere of the site invites visitors to travel along the tracks of an imaginary voyage, in a quest for an authentic and relaxing stay.
Everything in Caldea seems to bring you to seek escape, as the neighbouring mountainous peaks reflect in the huge glass roofs, and climax your moments of rest here.
Relaxing and inviting, Andorra’s thermal waters await to take you away in this hidden oasis of well-being, carefully hidden in the heart of the Pyrenees! Hotels and residences :

Three restaurants will strive to answer and satisfy your culinary tastes: the Oasis, the Aquarius and the Deimos.
The city of Andorra offers a vast number of restaurants to those who wish to explore the city’s outskirts. Yet objectively, you might want to try out restaurants on the other side of the neighbouring border, in France.
This is a renowned restaurant, highly recommended by quality gastronomic guidebooks.
Its food is elaborate and sophisticated, as remarkable French and Spanish wines accompany exquisite dishes.
The restaurant’s atmosphere best befits a business meal or a more intimate rendez-vous.

Restaurant "Le Deimos"
Bar and traditional pub food. Original and friendly atmosphere, open all day. Sports and Activities :
Andorra offers a vast range of activities : archery, hiking and trekking, horseriding, mountainbiking, go-karting, rafting, hydrospeed, canoeing, ice-skating, an 18-hole golf course, winter sports.
But you might not find enough time to take part in all the activities listed above, as Andorra comprises other unbeatable assets.
The tax-free prices offered in Andorra’s numerous shops have no match elsewhere in Europe, even though certain goods are not as cheap as they used to be, namely, IT appliances.
Nonetheless, it would be a shame, and obviously sketchy, to confine Andorra’s charms to that of a giant mall. It is also a beautiful little country set in beautiful surroundings, be it in summer or in winter. The principality boasts numerous alpine skiing pistes, with choice facilities and great snow.

882 km from Paris, 190 km from Toulouse down to the Spanish border
