Chateauneulf les Bains

Built on the shores of the Sioule river, the village was initially developed around an ancient parish called “Saint-Cirgues sous Châteauneuf” which it was named after. It then became known as “Saint-Valentin sous Châteauneuf” before finally becoming Châteauneuf-les-Bains. The town owes its fame to its mineral waters which gush from 25 springs located over a 3km area - only some of which are exploited. The Gallo-Romans were first to discover the benefits of these waters but the spa activity really took off in the 19th century. Explorer Jean-Pierre Alibert used to regularlyu visit Châteauneuf-les-Bains to cure his rheumatism. He fell in love with the town and built “Notre-Dame de l’Espérance” in 1862.

The Thermal Park was created in 1882 by Jean-Baptiste Bargoin a pharmacist from Clermont Ferrand and is typically english in style from the era of Napoleon III and is charecterised by a the exotic essences one detects when strolling through. In 1994, the park was classed as an arboretum and today around 30 types of conifers and feuillus are to be found here.
