Côte Coon at La Côte Saint-Jacques

The chef-owner believes in the virtues of fine cooking. He also believes in the virtues of well-being. Thus, Jean-Michel Lorain wanted to create a new direction at La Côte Saint-Jacques, a temple of gastronomy on the banks of the Yonne, and a stopping place that you might never want to leave.

The waters of youth began in 2007. He has invested more than 1.4 million Euros in building an 800 m2 spa on two levels. The first centres around an indoor pool. Magnificent arches majestically highlight the large 6 m x 12 m pool which opens onto the garden and boasts a splendid mosaic, reflected in the turquoise water. Nearby you will find the reception, change rooms, shop and teak-decked jacuzzi overlooking the river.

Step down a few steps along a mysterious leafy wall and you're in the heart of the spa. Everything is intended to let you leave your stress at the door, as if taking off your shoes: a hammam with a multicolored starry ceiling, sauna, facial and esthetic care rooms including a VIP room for couples' care services with a Japanese Ofuro tub,  a heating table with effusion shower and a private hammam, and finally manicure, pedicure and make-up facilities. For the more courageous, a fitness room perfectly outfitted with top-end equipment is available. 

The decoration combines natural elements: a plant wall, pebbles, glass and a light well. The atmosphere and the spirit of the place encourage a feeling of well-being and relaxation - an excellent place to recharge.

Why Côte Coon? There is, of course, the reference to the Côte Saint-Jacques, but also a focus on the property's aim to pamper and cocoon its guests, offering them an unforgettable experience, like the ones provided by the hotel and restaurant. 

Jean-Michel Lorain has chosen to work with two prestigious and very complementary brands. He says, "We chose to manage the spa ourselves, in order to ensure the same attention to detail that we give every level of service at our property. Our spa technicians were trained to the standards of care of the two brands with which we are working."
