Wellness Complex with Sauna Caravan and Finnish Bath

«The ’Les Rives Zen’ space is an essential stop during the winter season, where you can recharge and replenish your vitality for a carefree winter.

Rives Zen offers a 2-hour journey for maximum relaxation, taking advantage of the recognized benefits of sauna and cryotherapy (cold water immersion).

This temporary complex will be open during the winter season, from November 1st, 2023, to March 30th, 2024.

The journey will be designed to ensure maximum relaxation for those who come to experience Rives Zen!

The complex consists of:

  • A sauna trailer (maximum 12 people) with a panoramic view of the lake.
  • A Finnish hot tub located on the beach.
  • A yurt (6 meters in diameter) transformed into a reception and meeting area, where you can also enjoy herbal teas and other detox drinks between sauna sessions.
  • A dome (6 meters in diameter) transformed into a relaxation area and massage zone.
  • Direct access to the beach for cold water swimming.
  • Access to sanitary facilities with showers and toilets.


1) Provide residents of the region with a place for relaxation, rejuvenation, and socializing. 2) Promote health and stress prevention. 3) Revitalize the camping beach during the winter period from November 1st to March 30th. 4) Offer an additional service for winter tourism.»

My project is special because ...

Rives Zen adopts an eco-friendly approach to energy usage, relying solely on wood to heat the various structures of the temporary complex. Additionally, the products offered will be sourced from local producers or created by your team!

Every detail will be carefully considered and crafted for the well-being of the clients. The experience will be enhanced by the surrounding decor, the decoration of different areas, and the services provided, such as relaxing massages by appointment. The musical ambiance will be specially chosen to promote relaxation and tranquility for the clients. Soothing and calming melodies will accompany their experience at Rives Zen.

Sauna ceremonies will be enriched with fragrant herbs directly sourced from the complex’s garden. The aromatic and beneficial properties of these herbs will contribute to an even more revitalizing and soothing experience.

Special events will be organized every 15 days to offer a variety of unique experiences to the clients. These events may include meditation sessions, yoga workshops, wellness lectures, demonstrations of relaxation techniques, and more.

Clients will also have the opportunity to purchase products for the complex, such as natural cosmetics, soft and high-quality bath towels, and sauna accessories. These products will be carefully selected to complement the Rives Zen experience and allow clients to extend their well-being at home.
