Amelie les Bains is about as far south in France as you can get, nestling on the banks of a sheltered river valley in its very own micro climatic pocket. It is the sunniest region in France, with spectacular, quiet and well maintained roads and tracks make for endless cycling and running routes. We have access to swimming lakes, rivers, 25m and 50m pools and the Mediterranean Sea for swim training.
