Village of Brides-les-Bains
Brides-les-Bains is a commune with a small population at the base of Les Trois Vallées ski region. It was an Olympic Village for the 1992 Winter Olympics based in Albertville when the cable car was built connecting Brides into the heart of the ski region at Méribel. Since then, Brides has been a popular destination particularly due to its rail access. (High-speed trains from Paris and London come as far as Môutiers, the regional rail center, only 15 minutes from Brides). Even before the Olympic windfall, Brides was an important spa with thermal springs and a treatment center specializing in obesity.
Although our hotels are within an easy walk to the base station of the cable car, there is a free shuttle service running through the village.
