Ski holidays: if you’ve ever been on one, you’ll know just how fun they are. On the other hand, you'll know just exhausting they can be, too — ask anyone, skiing is way more of a workout than you'd expect it to be. What's more, skiing is only part of it. There's also the culinary delights, with dishes like fondue and raclette to warm you up. And then there's the glorious après-ski (and the inevitable hangover).
For the moments when the aching muscles, the lingering hangover and over-feasting on melted cheese get too much for you, though, there are also the thermal spas. And what could be a better cure than steam, soothing water and lots of it? Ditch the slopes and get yourself along to these affordable European spas for the full works.
