Reason No. 1 It’s closer than you think for a day trip!
Yes, everyone’s heard of La Roche-Posay, but have you ever been there?
Around an hour’s drive away from Poitiers and Tours, there’s always something going on at La Roche-Posay. At the weekend, you’ll find the Festival Bailatino (Latin music) or Les Vacances de Monsieur Haydn (chamber music). If you fancy a flutter, go all in at the casino or the racecourse. And in summer, you can relax by the river Creuse, or zoom along in a canoe. La Roche-Posay is also a thriving thermal town with centuries of heritage, and its Medieval city will delight amateur archaeologists and history buffs.
Reason No. 2 It’s perfect for a romantic getaway
Whether for the day or for an entire weekend, La Roche-Posay is a dream destination for a romantic getaway.
Imagine relaxing à deux with a treatment at SPA Source, sharing a romantic dinner at a quality restaurant, and then spending the night in a cosy and comfortable hotel room. The next morning, enjoy a coffee on the terrace and soak up the village’s calm atmosphere, and walk hand in hand along the banks of the Creuse.
Reason No. 3 It’s an authentic and historic city
A town of two faces: the thermal resort and Medieval remains
When it comes to thermal dermatology, La Roche-Posay is the capital of Europe, and its velvety smooth waters are still central to its identity today. Discover 5 centuries of thermal tradition in 20th-century buildings: villas, baths, a thermal park and its lodges. But La Roche-Posay is also a Medieval town! Many of its old buildings and fortifications have survived to this day, like the Bourbon Gate, the keep and Notre Dame church.
Reason No. 4 It’s a stunning natural setting
Immerse yourself in nature.
On foot, on horseback or by mountain bike, La Roche-Posay’s 130km of trails are just waiting to be explored. The banks of the River Creuse are the perfect place to kick back and relax. But if you’re looking for something a little more energetic, children and adults alike can enjoy hiking with dogs, canoeing, an 18-hole golf course, and a mini-golf course in the beautiful surroundings of La Roche-Posay...
Reason No. 5 It’s ideally located to help you discover the rest of the region
Visit Futuroscope and the Châteaux of the Loire Valley.
La Roche-Posay is strategically placed to let you enjoy the best of the region’s sites and activities. It’s the perfect place for a varied and fascinating stay, as it’s in the heart of Poitou, halfway between Poitiers and Tours and between the Futuroscope and the Châteaux of the Loire Valley. It’s also very close to Brenne and Berry, not to mention the ZooParc at Beauval.
