Brides les Bains

Brides-les-Bains is a lovely French Savoyard town created in 1848 and renowned for its slimming cures and spa.

The high-speed Olympe gondola connects Brides-les-Bains to the bottom of the slopes in Méribel in 25 minutes and then allows access directly to the heart of the famous 3 Vallées ski area (Méribel, Méribel Mottaret, Courchevel, Les Menuires, and Val Thorens).

Brides-les-Bains has a number of bars and restaurants as well as two nightclubs and the only casino in the Three Valleys, all with prices well below those of Méribel and Courchevel.

Non-skiers or après-ski enthusiasts can relax in the new large spa centre which offers traditional oriental baths, aromatics steam rooms and saunas.

Brides-les-Bains is widely recognised as offering an exceptional value-for-money gateway to one of the world’s most prestigious ski areas.
