Words of Sandrine, Jules and their children

Les Bains du Lac

A bit of history!

Les Bains du Lac! Why this name?

The rather classical architecture of the building with its peristyle recalls Greek and Roman temples in reference to the discovery of an ancient Gallo-Roman villa that had private baths on the territory of Mercin and Vaux, which hosts the aquatic complex.

The choice fell on that of baths, a bit like a distant echo to the first cold baths of Soissons. The word “Lake” comes from the architect of the complex who, during work meetings, kept calling the body of water on the site where the complex is built, a lake.

The Lake Baths were born!

The eye of the visitor

The complex is above all a space for living, relaxing and sharing. So ask about the events that are regularly offered during the day or in the evening.

With original themes that are constantly renewed, these events are an opportunity to get together with friends. With music, or around a good cocktail, you too can take advantage of these special moments to disconnect!
