The thermal spa of Barbotan-les-Thermes carries the green holiday resort label and is located in the district of Cazaubon. It is famous for its natural water and vegetal mineral mud, which are recognised for their benefits in treating rheumatic and phlebological complaints. The Thermal Baths, based in a beautiful establishment with architecture inspired by the old tobacco dryers of the South-West, offers spa and well-being treatments in addition to its medical cures.
Near the spa and the 12th-century Church of St. Peter lies a superb park full of exotic plant varieties, where lotuses, banana trees, palm trees and magnolias bloom. It's an ideal place for tourists to take a leisurely stroll. A walk in the park is a must in July in particular, when the ponds are adorned with superb pink lotus flowers!
Two kilometres south of Barbotan, Uby Lake covers 80 hectares and is sure to appeal to fans of water sports and relaxation, with its leisure centre and fine sandy beach.
