les pres d'eugenie

wellness weekends from £1,215 les pres d'eugenie pau

This is a spa escape with a difference; ideal for foodies who want to enjoy sublime cuisine and lose weight at the same time.

Chef Michel Guerard is one of the icons of French cooking (a founder of nouvelle cuisine which later, in far less talented imitator’s hands, gained a mixed reputation), and has been based in the Gascony region, in the sleepy village of Eugenie-les-Bains, since 1974.  He gained three Michelin stars in 1977 and has retained them ever since. His utterly brilliant skill is to serve meals of the very finest quality but with very few calories. 

Les Pres d'Eugenie is set in large grounds with pretty gardens, a swimming pool, a spa, and various charming buildings that house different styles of bedrooms and suites.  In the grounds, there's also the simple but most enjoyable country restaurant called Fermes aux Grives. 

The main dining room, where chef  Michel Guerard serves his famous Cuisine Minceur is very simple, as befits a restaurant whose chef is noted for his simplicity of cooking and emphasis on superb ingredients and technique.

The spa is a delightfully relaxed with a rustic exterior that belies the stylish, comfortable interior.  There are numerous treatments on offer, including the famous white mud bath signature treatment, all based around the 1,000 year old thermal springs upon which the spa is based.  See our 3, 7 and 9 day wellness programmes
