Alps French Riviera - Aix les Bains

Visiting Aix-les-Bains

Tourism in Aix-les-Bains

Take advantage of the ideal location - in the town centre - of the 4-star Hotel Le Garden to visit Aix-les-Bains. Lying between the superb Bourget Lake and the Alps, the town was very popular during the Belle-Époque, for its spa water said to treat a variety of conditions.

Aix-les-Bains is a listed Town of Art and History and, therefore, offers tourists a large number of treasures: many Palaces from the Belle-Époque, Notre-Dame-des-Eaux Church, the Faure Museum and its collection of Impressionist works, and the legendary Casino Grand Cercle.

Try your luck at the Casino!
