The properties at La Durantie will be built around one of the top luxury spas in the Tarn and the south of France
Surrounded by trees and flowers and the winding pathways of the Château’s lush gardens, the state-of-the-art Spa at the Durantie development promises to be an oasis of calm - the perfect place to unwind and de-stress. It is also set to become one of the most luxurious spas in the south of France. The spa will occupy the château’s magnificent 18th century barn, a stone’s throw from the development’s properties, and renovated with high windows to let in plenty of light, while retaining many of the original features such as exposed beams and original stonework. From many of the treatment spaces, the sauna and workout rooms, you’ll enjoy stunning views of the countryside around, with nature walks tempting you through to the estate’s woodlands, where you can rest body and soul in secluded seating areas.In fact, ‘Eco Tree Lodges’ are also planned, where you’ll be able to commune with nature at bird level. Enormous glass doors will open out to a large sun deck with a view across a wildflower meadow, down to a natural ‘eco’ swimming pool, and beyond across the vineyards of the Tarn. Two more pools, both 20 metres, one indoor one outdoor, will be available for swimming laps or just cooling off after a workout.
The luxury spa will offer all you could need to de-stress and de-tox. Cleanse your pores in the steam room, the dry ‘Laconium’ sauna or in the ‘Mud House’. Invigorate body and mind in the alternating hot and cold waters of a ‘Kneipp Path’ therapy, or sink into the hydrotherapy pool, located on a tranquil ‘herb terrace’. Then perhaps pop into one of the four single or two double treatment rooms, or our outdoor treatment terraces, for a relaxing massage or skin treatment.
If you’re looking to tone up while here, then head for the state-of-the-art ‘techno’ gym - brimming with all the latest exercise machines. Alternatively, book a class (you’ll find everything from ‘Kettle Bells’ to ‘Zumba’ or Yoga and Pilates) in our workout studio. When you’re done, wash your worries away under the Rainforest shower, or tone up your skin at the Ice Fountain.
The spa is only a few minutes’ walk from all of the development’s properties. You access it via a tranquil winter garden with a mature olive tree. The building itself will be spacious and light, with a separate art gallery and shop featuring the latest beauty products. The spa also offers luxuriously appointed changing rooms with private cubicles, showers and even make-up areas. There will be a separate section for hair, nails and beauty treatments - all administered by trained professionals. A lounge area with a wood-burning stove will be located within the upper floor of the barn, the perfect place to relax after a workout or treatment. It too will benefit from superb views over the surrounding countryside. Or you may want to unwind in the Relaxation Room, in the seventeenth century converted barn, with exposed wood beams and stone walls, fitted with private beds encircling a huge aquarium filled with tropical fish.
