Saint-Vincent is located in the eastern Aosta Valley, in a good position to reach the Val d'Ayas and the Valtournenche: this city is famous and frequented especially for its Casino, one of the largest gambling halls in Europe, but also its hot springs are a precious attraction.
Compared to the thermal baths of Pré-Saint-Didier, the thermal baths of Saint-Vincent have a more recent history: the spring, discovered in 1770, was called Fons Salutis for its particular healing properties indicated for digestive disorders and skin care, from beauty treatments to therapies to relieve ailments such as psoriasis and dermatitis.
In 2007, next to the original spa, a modern spa was added: located in a dominant position overlooking the valley and the amphitheater of the surrounding mountains, you can spend relaxing moments in a very suggestive panorama.
In the SPA there are three indoor and 2 outdoor pools, each with different proposals of whirlpool and water jets, as well as 2 saunas, three whirlpools and a relaxation area on the panoramic terrace, open all year round depending on weather conditions.
