Laced in history and traditional therapy techniques, combined with 21st century efficacy and style, when you’re looking for a unique and elegant getaway that gets to the heart of what spa is all about, this is where to go.
The key difference between the spas of Castilla Thermal is the composition of its waters and their associated benefits. The moment you enter the spas you feel the difference, the smell, the touch, and even the sound of the water, which makes the customer’s perception completely different. The waters are from natural springs and are believed to help with digestive, metabolic, antacid, anti-inflammatory, diuretic and nervous system treatments.
Then there’s the buildings, each with its own unique history; a Renaissance university, a Mudejar convent, the best preserved Cistercian monastery in Europe and the rehabilitation of a Belle Epoque building make the experience completely unique, and give each of the hotels its own personality.
Perhaps the most complete and unknown of the treatments available at the Castilla hotels is the Vichy Shower. It’s all the joy of a massage under a fine shower of minero medicinal water, and is a form of hydrotherapy, often combined with other treatment elements such as a scrub to increase the benefits and of products recently absorbed by your skin, however it’s also therapeutic on its own and is often believed to boost the immune system.
The spa believes that from the moment a baby is in of the womb, they receive massage in some form. The simple act of passing the hand over your stomach during pregnancy is transformed into a caress that the baby senses. From birth, the baby continuously receives massage in the bath, when applying creams and so forth, it is simply the power of touch that increases the emotional bond and relaxes them. Castilla Thermal spas offer massages for infants and children to help parents to learn to strengthen those emotional bonds and teach them techniques that provide them with a sense of wellbeing and to help them grow.
The area around each hotel has something unique to offer. There is the cathedral city of El Burgo de Osma, Santander near Solares, the route of the Castles around Olmedo, the monastery in Valbuena, and the jewels of the Mudejar Castilian of Olmedo, considered capital of this style.
Nature is also in abundance, such as the river Abión near Burgo, and the impressive landscape offered by the Canyon of Ríolobos or Laguna Negra. The “land of Pinares” region to which Olmedo belongs, and of course the vineyards and routes around the Duero which surround the monastery of Valbuena. For those who want to be a little more active, there are also bike routes and the beautiful beaches of the Bay of Biscay can be enjoyed around Solares.
Finally, there’s the food, protagonist at all the hotels thanks to the agricultural products and organic livestock and wine that runs through the veins of Valbuena, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero and Olmedo.
The hotels are ideal for anyone who wants to disconnect and enjoy everything that the waters and environment has to offer. There are milestones in the season of course, whether that’s the temperature or the classical theater festival of Olmedo, the “killings” of El Burgo de Osma, but there’s something to enjoy at every time of the year, whether it’s the Cantabrian beaches in the summer or Christmas submerged in the warm thermal waters.
