History of Hotel Thermale

Hotel Thermale, or Hotel Des Thermes as it’s sometimes known is an abandoned hotel in France that provided “healing baths”. The hotel was very popular, especially with the older population and people with disabilities, as the hot mineral water provided by local springs was believed to have curing properties. It was not uncommon to see wheelchairs lined up by the side of the baths while nurses helped the most disabled to bath.

Our Visit
This was the last stop on the a tour with Proj3ct M4yh3m, Kriegaffe9 and Darbians. We hadn’t had the most fruitful day ever, and we were ready for one final visit before heading back to the UK. We had a tight 20 minute time-window before we had to leave to get the to tunnel under the sea. It took us 20 minutes just to get in! We decided to be late and it turned out to be a good end to the trip.
