Be Breizh! (That's not a spelling error...)
Yes, you read it right. And you say it: 'Breeshe.' And it's the Breton word for Brittany, which - as spa-goers know - is a prime destination for thallassotherapy, which involves all manner of seawater and marine treatments. So we haven't just put this outdoorsy shot of a girl in her Breton t-shirt to torture you: this is what you could now be looking forward to - with a lot less hassle than before - on a Brittany spa trip. One of the fiendish things about booking a French spa visit has been - well, the Frenchness of the whole thing. So (not before time) there's a brand new English website which offers an A-Z guide to top-to-toe pampering in breezy, breizh-y Brittany. On this well-designed, easy-to-navigate site, there's a full run-down of the treatments, the spas, the locations (find that bit under WHERE TO GO - and look for ALL RELAXATION PLACES), and which are best for what (cellulite/legs/post-natal/stress/joints etc.) We defy you not to start looking longingly at next summer's diary...
