Aix-les-Bains The Essential

Frequented by Alphonse de Lamartine, this town gleams with the gold of its Belle Époque façades, when just a few years ago they were losing their shine. Quite a metamorphosis for the place, which is at once a hub of activities in the region, spa town and waterside resort on the shores of the Lac du Bourget. The old palaces are gradually being opened to visitors, revealing whole swathes of Aix's remarkable heritage. The town was designated a "Ville d'art et d'histoire" in 2014.
