We would definitely return. It is reasonably priced at only 4 euro per person and 2 euro to rent a towel. Worth a visit. We... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find that these pools were so well maintained and attended. There were changing rooms, on-site security and the water felt fresh and clean. Staff was a little abrupt, but overall a good experience.

A little pond of warm natural water (over 50* C), to relax your feet. Fortunately there is the cold water of the river running at the side to balance things!
