Admiring a sunset

The only thing you have to do is choose the perfect place to take your eyes off ! For the rest, it will suffice either to go there and keep your eyes wide open, or to prepare this beginning of the evening a minimum by organizing a small aperitif or even an outdoor meal.

For this, you will need to equip yourself with a picnic tablecloth or small mattresses if you want to settle on the sand or at the top of a cliff for better comfort.

Places to see a magnificent sunset are very numerous in France, we can give you examples:the cliff of Aval in Étretat , the Old Port of Marseille from the Pharo or the Sanguinaires Islands in Corsica which, at nightfall, have the rock that turns red...

Romanticism for some, optimal tranquility for others!

Book a Thalasso cure

A vacation before the vacation, who says better? The best of zen is to get back into shape ! You can book a short thalasso or spa stay in Biarritz in the heart of the Basque country in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.

Tourist seaside resort very popular for practicing among other things thalassotherapy , you will be exposed to the sea and iodized air of the Atlantic Ocean and will quickly feel soothed by it.

New to the field? Know that thalassotherapy allows under medical supervision to benefit from the many benefits of a judicious combination of treatments in the marine environment, whether curative or preventive.

The Thalasso centers are therefore all located by the sea and it is the combination of several elements (water, climate, mud, seaweed, sand, etc.) that plays an essential role in the feeling of relaxation and body balance .
