Aix les Bains, France

Aix les Bain is a thermal town in Savoy with a casino.
This city of 25,000 inhabitants (40,000 in the metropolitan area) attract the old people.
So this city is not really for young people.

I love European spa towns. One of my favourites is of course the well known Baden Baden, but judging from these photos I really need to get myself to this area of France too as it looks like an absolute gem, not because of stunning beauty, but because it has far more character and identity than many manicured and manufactured spa towns appear to have. This despite it being a town for old people as you say.

Thanks, Minato, for sharing these excellent photos.

Except the Astoria and the Grand-Hôtel, you didn't take all others Belle Epoque Palaces (Beauregard, Beau-site, le Grand-Hôtel, le Bernascon, le Splendide, le Royal, le Mirabeau) !? It's a pity because, although they have been layed out into residential flats some of them are very beautifuls...

Beaureagard:






Beau-Site:






Le Grand-Hôtel:








Bernascon:








Le Royal:




Le Splendide:




Le Mirabeau:
