French chateau luxury spa experience

Chateau d'Augerville luxury spa

After walking around Orleans for the morning in part 5 of our French road trip, we did a little browsing at a nearby shopping centre, Place D’Arc. After having a peek at the luxury spa at our chateau hotel, we were really looking forward to relaxing there in the afternoon.  Before we headed back, we decided to find a restaurant for some lunch.

We spotted L’Entracte by Paul just outside the shopping centre, which looked really popular and had a big outside seating area. We both chose to have the burger with chips and salad leaves, plus refreshing cold drinks to cool us down from the hot sun.

Feeling full from our lunch, we couldn’t wait to head back to Chateau d’Augerville for an afternoon in the spa.

It was lovely to arrive back at the peaceful and picturesque chateau grounds after the hustle and bustle of Orleans.

The spa was incredibly relaxing and the perfect place to completely wind down.

The exceptionally cold water you could walk through in the oval section above was certainly not something I chose to partake in! And neither was the icy water in a bucket you could drop onto yourself in another room!

I did venture into the ice room for a while though, which was rather chilly. The sauna and steam room provided a complete contrast.

Underwater beds offer a lie down combined with hydromassage jets.

Stepping inside the Rain Mist Corridor provides a unique experience.

Standing inside, you witness changing lights, sounds and falling water, all mimicking various tropical rainstorms. Quite surreal and rather impressive.

A duo of pedispas means we could both enjoy a warm bubbly water treatment for our feet together.

We retreated to the warm Winter Garden to relax on the sun loungers and read a magazine while sipping fruit tea.

A perfect way to end the day!

    Oh my gosh this place looks (and sounds) heavenly! I’ve never been to a proper spa before but I wish there were some around here that was as good as this place. Was it super expensive? And you were lucky to have the place all to yourselves!

      Yes we were so lucky to get it to ourselves for a while, although other people soon came along unfortunately 🙂 The chateau was really expensive but we got a good deal through Secret Escapes which included free use of the spa too, so we were really lucky! x
