Thermal baths were introduced into the region by the Ancient Romans, and the Grand Thermes here are some of the best. Once fully relaxed and revived, you can head over to the Saturday morning market to stock up on all sorts of delicious local produce, or just maintain your relaxed state in one of the cafés on tree-lined Coustous Square or by the River Ardour.
