Salins-Fontaine

The commune is formed of 2 villages: Salins-les-Thermes, the administrative centre (alt. 490m) and Fontaine-le-Puits, (alt.1,104m).

Salins-les-Thermes enjoys a prime geographical location close to Moûtiers’ shops and services and just 6km from the thermal spa resort of Brides-les-Bains. On the way to your snowsports holiday or to a nature break in the Vanoise National Park, the village is in the perfect place to explore the Tarentaise.

This thermal spa resort formerly specialised in the treatment of skin conditions and rheumatism and boasted a thermal centre from 1820 which led to its development as a health tourism destination. Nicknamed “The Alpine Sea’ because of its high rate of water production (5 million litres a day!), Salins has kept its thermal swimming pool with naturally hot water and a massage jet pool.

At the entrance to the Belleville valley, Fontaine-le-Puitsis the perfect spot for family hikes and walks. It offers uninterrupted views over the nearby Vanoise, Les 3 Vallées and MontBlanc summits!
