A place to stay on your way to Spain, Portugal or Italy

La Croix Spa

If you own a holiday home or have your permanent residence in Spain, Portugal or Italy – or if you are just driving down there for a holiday – then why not stop off at La Croix Spa on your way down?

Many people find the car journey to Spain, Portugal or Italy (or even to the South of France) to be too long to do in a single trip and they inevitably need somewhere to rest to break the journey. A lot of people have a short break at La Croix Spa for just this reason!

Whether your stop-over on your way down south is a night, two nights or a whole week, we can accommodate your needs (although in July and August we do require a minimum stay of one week, due to demand).

For a reasonable nightly price (this depends on the size of your party and the time of the year) you can enjoy all the facilities of La Croix Spa. Our heated pool is available from May through to the end of September and our Jacuzzi and Sauna are available all year-round.

You may or may not want to cater for yourselves. Don’t worry! Evening meals can be ordered (pre-booking, please) and we can also stock your fridge with continental breakfast goodies. Make your stop-over the real start of your holiday by dining at a local chateau or another of the great quality local restaurants serving the specialities of this region.

If you are driving down to Spain, Portugal, Italy or the South of France on your way down to your holiday there, then La Croix is perfectly situated en-route at just the right point for breaking your journey! We are 6 hours drive from Caen or 10 hours from Calais – so you’ll find we’re just about half way there! An overnight ferry from Portsmouth or Dover will mean you’ll arrive mid or late afternoon at La Croix Spa. Perfect timing to give yourselves a rest and refresh yourselves before continuing your journey the next day (or whenever you wish to). La Croix Spa is located in the second sunniest region in France. It is ideally placed for those who want to indulge in the fine food and wine for which France is famous. Being nestled in the corner of the Perigord-Limousin natural park, La Croix Spa is perfect for visiting the many and varied tourist attractions of the Charente, the Dordogne, the Haute-Vienne and the Limousin.

Let one of our clients speak for us. We received a card out of the blue with the following unedited content:

“Dear Paula, we have juste returned to England after our three weeks in Spain after leaving you. I felt I just had to write to you to thank you for a truly lovely holiday. You made my whole family so very welcome & certainly made every effort to make sure they all had a great time, which I know they did.

The set up of La Croix is wonderful with so much to do or just relax & enjoy the scenery which was beautiful. Thank you once again Paula, we all I know will remeber our holiday with you for many months to come. Kind regards.”
