Ecologic Bathing

A pure water

For your greatest comfort, the whole zone of bathing works thanks to a system of natural filtration through which the used water is processed by a system of biological auto-purification. The ponds of regeneration, mainly constituted of reeds, are going to clean, cleanse and process the water. You bathe in natural water, without any chemical treatment(processing) nor chlorine.

That is why we ask you to take a shower with soap before getting to ponds.

A quality of water watched and analyzed.

Every morning before the opening, the maintenance crew Rivièr’ Alp cleans 3 ponds of bathing. Water samplings are made every Friday and analyzed by the cabinet Savoie lab. Other parameters, in particular the temperature and the pH, are continuously watched, 24 hours a day.

Teams of maintenance Rivièr’ Alp check and clean the fine filters, then make sure of the smooth running of pumps and ponds of regeneration.
All these devices and maintenance are subject to a follow-up and a strict survery by the Regional Agency of Health.
