It is the site of the ancient Sainte Odile Spring, the source of pure thermal water renowned for its soothing and protective properties for more than 270 years. Infused with a unique biological and mineral composition, the water is drawn directly from its source to treat a range of troubling skin conditions, such as Eczema, Atopic Dermatitis, Rosacea, Psoriasis and burns at the Avène Hydrotherapy Center.
Founded well before the 12th century, the village of Avène is nestled in the Upper Orb Valley, at the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park.
