Ax Les Thermes

Ax les Thermes is a small spa town, in the Ariege department, with the warmest spring waters in the Pyrenees, ranging from 43 to a staggering 78 degrees celsius. One of the springs, in the centre of the town, even used to be used to wash wool, and to de-ice the streets in winter.

The word “ax” in the name of the town stems from a Spanish word for “smell”, and it’s true that all the local waters give out a very strong smell of sulphur!

Ax-3 Domaines, is a nearby winter-sports centre, established in the 1960s.
