The emblem of Domaine des Etangs is the dragonfly. And, like the dragonfly, everything here centres around a delicate equilibrium, an harmony between seasons, elements, complementary principles, and senses.
For the past 350 million years, the life of the dragonfly has played out in the
balance between the water of its birth and the air of its existence, between the earth and the iridescence of its wings. Framing its slender feather-point body, these wings carry the dragonfly wherever it desires.
This quest for equilibrium in all things leads us not to strive for the most, but the best of every place, season and moment. And if we succeed in this, it is not only due to the diminish beauty or calmness of what is already there, but rather to imbue it with a sense of stillness.
Our expertise in skincare runs deep. We believe that skin is far more than an external barrier – it is an expression of our innermost self. This is why our treatments focus as much on the surface as the spirit; on the balance between outside and in, between the visible and the unseen.
If there is one thing to keep in mind, it is that Moulin des Etangs is not about feeling better – it is about feeling good.
Carried out in complete harmony with the cycle of seasons and the principal elements of water, air, fire, ether and earth, the treatments offered by our practitioners are directly inspired by the surrounding natural environment.
Le Moulin des Etangs also offers treatments that are specifically designed for families. In the triple suite, parents and children are invited to share an unforgettable moment.
If they wish, children have the opportunity (always accompanied by their parents) to enjoy an experience in which treatments have been especially designed for them, according to their age, from the organic and high quality products we are using to highly trained therapists and finishing by the fun drink and snack created by our Chef, all the little details had been taken into consideration to make these experiences their own.
Art also forms an important part of the spa experience, in the form of original pieces of artwork, which were exclusively designed for this place.
Taking care of yourself also involves taking care of your mind, body and soul, getting in touch with your inner child, allowing your mind to explore different worlds.
Duy Anh Nhan Duc has created poetic, botanical pieces, which allow you to experience a number of different environments: a small field of clovers, a fantastic herb garden and botanical portraits representing the five elements, which are displayed in the treatment rooms.
The artist and drawer, Cyprien Chabert, has drawn an imaginary forest which is visible on the relaxation room and the changing rooms. These are fresco charcoal drawings, which are produced on a stretched canvas and give the impression of being beneath the trees.
When you look beyond Le Moulin des Etangs, it is in fact the entirety of Domaine des Etangs which forms something of a universe of well-being. Its 1000 hectare area provides guests with numerous opportunities for enjoyment and freedom, which allows everyone to find something that meets their needs and desires. Before or after treatment, our practitioners invite guests to discover the Domaine in another way, by suggesting some other activities that will help them to let off steam: a boat trip, a sport (tennis, running, swimming) or meditation activity (yoga and meditation), a visit to the vegetable garden, a picnic in the forest, tasting a delicious gourmet dish or simply watching the stars…
It is a place of freedom, where truly anything is possible, including doing nothing.
While the time away, rediscovering who you really are. And get back to the basics: Quintessence.
