The ultimate in luxury: the two private hammams in the chalet 

Holidays in Haute-Savoie are always invigorating and rejuvenating. Take care of yourself, now is the time to enjoy the benefits of the hammam, in addition to the jacuzzi and sauna.

Say goodbye to muscular pains and avoid aches and pains linked to sport.


This is precisely what we offer at Chalet Les Cerises. Our two master bedrooms; the "Aravis" suite and the "Mont-Blanc" suite have a steam generator in their shower cabins. You can then bask in the warm atmosphere of the Turkish bath, which is close to 100% humidity. Hammams are perfect for relaxing your muscles after a day of skiing or a long walk in the mountains.

A hammam in your room


To get your hammam beauty ritual off to a good start, start by running a warm or even cold bath to invigorate yourself after the hammam session. While the bath fills up, take a shower; this will get your skin used to the heat. Start the steam generator, the ideal temperature of 50°C will be reached in a few minutes, start to feel the benefits of the hammam; the heat and humidity make breathing easier. If you can, add a few drops of essential oil such as eucalyptus which is very effective in clearing your sinuses.

Breathe in and out deeply for about ten minutes to make this a perfect moment of relaxation. By concentrating on your breathing you will be able to clear your thoughts. 

Remember to remove your jewellery before entering the steam room, watches do not appreciate the humid heat and metal accumulates heat (these precautions are even more justified if you use a sauna, the temperatures are higher there).

It's time to relax, our hammam cabins are equipped with a chromotherapy system, choose the blue colour to soothe you. A Bluetooth speaker is associated with the cabins, don't hesitate to listen to soothing music or even, why not, mantras to make this hammam session a real inner journey.

Between two hammam sessions, take your time

Don't hesitate to take a break and listen to your body. Refresh yourself often with the shower head, the shower tray or the waterfall. A first hammam session should not exceed 15 minutes.

Put on your bathrobe and stay outside the steam room for a while. Ideally, you should take a warm bath to bring your body temperature down and eliminate the sweat. The alternation of hot and cold has a profound effect on your body and helps to stimulate your immune system in a natural way. You can even optimise this vasodilation and vasoconstriction phenomenon by bathing in cold water.

Located in a Savoyard chalet, our discrete hammam cabins are a delight for skiers and hikers at the end of the day.

Drink regularly, hydrate yourself

Remember to dry off and take time to rest. If you can, go outside or open the window to breathe in the fresh air. This is a good time to pour yourself a mint or lavender tea to rehydrate. Iced water is not recommended for the internal organs; it is better to drink water at room temperature.

Then, return to the hammam, after about ten minutes of steam, the pores of your skin will open. This is the perfect time to start scrubbing your skin to remove all the impurities from the dead skin. The action of the black soap combined with the horsehair glove (Kessa), will allow a deep exfoliation. Use small circular motions and insist on areas where the skin is thick, such as elbows or heels. Rinse thoroughly in the shower and exit as before. Take a deep breath and rest on a towel while your body temperature drops, the resting time is considered to be equivalent to the duration of the session.

You can do this ritual three times, which is ideal. If you have the opportunity, alternate with a sauna session. But, above all, do not force yourself at the beginning, if you do not feel perfectly well, tell yourself that it is better to shorten these first hammam sessions. Go out quietly and lie down to recover slowly, you will come back all the more easily next time.

Eucalyptus, lavender, pine, lemon, rosemary and orange are the star essential oils of hammam sessions. Not all of them have the same virtues and their use is not recommended for children and pregnant women.

Remember to rehydrate your skin too

After a final hammam session, all you have to do is moisturise your skin with a cream or vegetable oils such as argan oil, jojoba oil or coconut oil. A dab of shea butter is also very effective for beautiful skin. In addition to this great skin cleansing, 10 to 30 minutes of hammam will relax you deeply and improve your cell renewal. 

The surface of the facial skin will be luminous and hydrated. Particularly recommended for combination and oily skin, the humid heat of the traditional hammam is effective in eliminating toxins and limiting the excess sebum responsible for acne and blackheads. 

Do not hesitate to make it a beauty routine: Deeply cleansing the skin with a black soap scrub gently exfoliates to regenerate, stimulate, tone and smooth the face and body. Very effective in restoring soft skin, the purifying hammam scrub is suitable for all skin types. The elimination of dead cells from the epidermis is a real plus to protect you from external aggressions and limit ageing
