The place :
Located on the Southern shore of Lake Leman, leaning on the Alps, Evian-les-Bains is a world-class tourist resort. It is a highly preferred destination for spa vacation not for thalassotherapy (which requires the use of seawater, whereas Evian is situated on a mountain), due to its ideal location between lake and mountains.
From the springs of Evian flows a mineral water with multiple healing properties. This mineral water, the mountain pure air, and the view of this meticulously well-designed and flowery town also called “the garden town” are the effective ingredients conducive to a successfully appeasing and healing moment during your thermal or health holiday in Evian.
In fact, there are in Evian a number of wellness institutes where you can benefit from various treatments, either at Evian Thermes or at the other centres of Evian Royal Resort.
One of the most interesting asset of Evian is its Casino open every day, with its table games, slot machines, a number of bars and restaurants of all types, and even a theater. Evian is also the place of multiple popular festivities such as the “Escales Musicales”, the Carnaval... Evian is most of all a highly appreciated golf destination with the Evian Masters.
