The restaurant, bar and wellness center are open to the public and form an integral part of the hotel, which is conceived to fit in with the local traditional alpine architecture. The concept behind the development is to maximize year round occupancy.
The idea is to welcome visitors over the full 12 months of the year and avoid the see-saw effect of the winter ski season peak and the short summer blip that Thyon-Les Collons suffers from. Year round access to the thermal spa will be a major factor in redressing this balance.
What is more, the location of the Thermes de la Dixence at a crossroad of mountain trails and « hautes routes » means that not only is it an ideal base camp for ski touring but also for hiking and mountaineering, which carries on through from spring to summer and well into the autumn.
