Eaux Bonnes dating from the Bronze Age, this little village was in its hey-day during the 18th and 19th centuries. Its hotels and apartments hosted such dignitaries as the Empress Eugenie who came here then to 'take the waters' in the thermal baths.. The buildings look very Parisian, and Edith and I could tell that it was at one time a beautiful and bustling village. When we visited, however, it was mostly shuttered and crumbling. Such a shame! The thermal baths are still open, though, as well as a few of the accommodations such as this one.
