A privileged holiday resort
The Belle Époque is one of the two eras that marked the city of Vichy.
A fashionable spa resort in the 19th century, Vichy waters were renowned for their health benefits. Thermal cures are popular here, as are leisure activities such as golf and tennis.
Founded in 1903 in the heart of Vichy, the Thermes des Dômes offer the possibility to bathe in mineral-rich waters, naturally endowed with therapeutic properties.
A city of art and culture
In Vichy there are many lush parks with romantic influences, such as Napoleon III Park and Kennedy Park.
You can visit the Vichy Opera House - Palais des Congrès - an Art Nouveau monument in gold and ivory colours. This jewel of the city's architectural heritage hosts opera and music performances.
