⊕ Swimming pool et spa – Champagne en Vanoise

Built in 2002 and originally open in the summer only, in summer 2017 the public pool in Champagny en Vanoise was covered with a huge transparent retractable cover that moves on a rail system. It is the only one of its kind in a mountain resort and in this type of public swimming pool.

The pool also has a new 250m2 SPA / relaxation area with 2 sauna cabins, a Turkish bath, a spa with hot and cold pools and a huge relaxation room with “experience” showers and a treatment area. Minimum age for spa 14 yrs

Environmental concerns were taken into consideration in this project which uses a renewable energy system: heating using a heat pump and hot water via solar panels. Champagny en Vanoise’s south-facing exposure is an undeniable asset.
