The tranquil hilltop haven, Crillon Le Brave, has introduced a selection of new pampering spa treatments for the summer season at its Spa des Ecuries. The latest addition to the Provençal retreat, built within the rustic limestone walls of the former stables, the Spa des Ecuries has added brand new facial and body treatments aimed to embody the soothing sensation of the surrounding rolling countryside and French lavender scents of the region.
With a spa menu curated by the Cotswold-based brand Bamford, treatments at Crillon Le Brave embrace a holistic approach to wellbeing with relaxation and rejuvenation at the core. Expanding their ever-growing range of bespoke facials and stress-relieving body treatments, new offerings for 2016 include the Bamford Signature Facial (60 minutes) and the Bamford Pregnancy Massage (60 minutes).

The massage technique combined with foot reflexology and ancient yogic breathing brings guest back to state of wakefulness and peace. 60 minutes/ €105
