Wellness and Spas in the Iberian Peninsula

Of all the relaxing things to do in Spain and Portugal, of which there is an almost countless number, spa time has to be near the top of the list. The Iberian appreciation for living life well coupled with the amazing menu of seaside spa retreats, mountain getaways, and island sanctuaries make it a fantastic destination for wellness holidays.

The spas and thermal water centers of Spain present you with a world of soothing sensations. These are places where the only priority is your wellbeing. Discover the best possible beauty treatment: being pampered; you'll feel like new. Seawater relaxes, revitalizes, beautifies and contains elements that are beneficial to the human body. Since Spain has almost 8,000 kilometers of coast, two seas, an ocean and exceptional, sunny weather, it’s the ideal destination to experience the amazing power of seawater.

The abundance of mineral springs to be found all over Portugal, some of which have been famous since Roman times, are an excellent reason to choose one of the comfortable Solares de Portugal for a memorable wellness and relaxation escape. You could be out in the Azores overlooking the Atlantic from your natural spa; basking in the precious beauty of Peneda-Gerês National Park with its waterfalls and wild horses; or just off the Road to Santiago de Compostela. Whatever spa you choose, you’ll find that all the manor houses of Portugal are idyllic places where you can enjoy truly relaxing peace and quiet as you delight in the breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean or over some of the most beautiful landscapes of Portugal’s inland regions.
