> Les Thermes (Bagnoles-de-l’Orne’s thermal springs): beyond the legends, the hot spring waters of Bagnoles are considered to have natural therapeutic properties. A speciality of the B’O Thermes establishment is the use, in certain treatments on offer, of Normandy cider apples together with the thermal waters!
> Arboretum: there are over 150 species of trees for you to discover in the gardens of the château (which is now home to the town hall).
> Belle époque district: time seems to have stopped at the beginning of the 20th century in Bagnoles-de-l’Orne’s most distinguished residential area, for the greater pleasure of romantic-minded wanderers and lovers of ornate architecture.
> Casino: set in an elegant Belle Epoque building, the casino occupies a prime lake-side location. The Hôtel Béryl beside the casino, and run by the same company, also offers more conventional spa treatments.
> Tours of the spa town: beyond the little tourist train that runs in peak holiday season, and beyond themed guided tours organised by the tourist office, you can also follow a 20-stage tour around the spa resort at your own pace, either using the audio-guide provided by the tourist office or a smartphone.
