In the interests of research we tried out the 'Wellness'  spa centre.  There was the biggest hamman I have ever visited, 3 saunas (all at different temperatures), 4 jacuzzi type baths, several sorts of shower along with easy chairs and mattresses.  The views through every window are of mountains and the lake - heavenly!!!

L'Ecrin du Val Claret Hotel in Val Claret
This hotel offers day passes and they have an indoor swimming pool, gym and thermal baths. This hotel is approximately 800 metres from the apartment. Next door to the above hotel, and in the same group, is the “Residence La Ferme du Val Claret”. They offer all the beauty treatments you could want, including 2 body wraps: the algae wrap and the chocolate wrap (!). I prefer to eat my chocolate but each to their own! They do a whole range of massages including Shiatsu, plus manicures and facials.

Outdoor activities

Apart from the obvious skiing! There are miles of prepared and marked trails for walking and ski du fond.  You can also go on a  cable car or funicular, and walk at altitude - or just join your skiing friends for lunch at one of the many mountain restaurants.
There are many other activities to try eg: Horse riding, Ice Diving, Para gliding, Ice skating, Helicopter flights, Snow shoeing, Karting on ice, Dog sledding, snowmobiling etc etc

Ice Grotto

You must definitely visit this if you get a chance, it is amazing, and well worth a trip up the Funicular.
