Famous since the 18th century for its sulphurous water with recognised beneficial properties, the elegant spa town of Enghien-les-Bains, located on the banks of a vast (43- hectare) lake, is the only spa resort in the Ile-de-France region. The thermal baths, which specialise in the treatment of ENT and respiratory disorders, and osteoarthritis, offers medical cures and a 3,500-m² beauty treatment, sport and spa centre, Le Spark, to meet your well-being and fitness needs. It is a fantastic complex and the perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries! Just opposite is the stunning Enghien lake, where you can go for lovely walks along the banks or do water sports like sailing, rowing, fishing and pedalo boating. On your walk, make a point of strolling around the rose garden and on Patenôtre-Desnoyers esplanade, two of the town's key attractions.
Enghien-les-Bains also offers a raft of entertainment and events throughout the year, with a casino (the only one in Ile-de-France) and plenty of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, as well as plays, operas and concerts. Every year in late June/early July, the banks of the lake play host to Enghien Jazz Festival, a major music event starring some of the greatest names in jazz.
