This resort is a pleasant place to stay or walk. Labelled Famille Plus, many activities are designed, all year round, for the youngest. It is also dedicated to children suffering from respiratory and skin diseases. It owes its name to the Gallic deity Borvo. Since their rediscovery at the beginning of the 19th century, two arsenical springs have been exploited at La Bourboule. One at 19 °C, the other reaching 40 °C higher. Guillaume Lacoste is the initiator of the construction of a first thermal establishment, but it is only forty years later, in 1854, that the town will experience a real boom, with the creation of a second establishment. The Grands Thermes are inaugurated in 1877. Today, about 11,000 curists come to be treated in the land of the Beneficial Fairies, you know, those who had the good idea to bring the Dordogne all the way there! All the wonderful creatures that populate children's tales couldn't have done better.
