“I always refused to create another Espace anywhere other than in Merano. Until the day when two worlds met - Spazio Chenot and Terra Moretti. I was seduced by the creativity, the desire to grow, to improve, and to discover new horizons; but also by the simplicity, the ability to listen. My wife, Dominique, and Enjoy one of the best luxury spa hotels in Italy, an oasis of well-being. decided to create a new way of pampering oneself, in order to achieve true natural beauty, enabling people to rediscover harmony without gimmicks, giving new light.” Henri Chenot

Amongst one of the best luxury Spa Hotels in Italy: Espace Chenot Health Wellness SPA, is a SPA in Franciacorta which best represents the ideal of absolute well-being, a space exclusively dedicated to self-care, according to a rigorous method strongly rooted in the principles of medicine, capable of bringing the body back to its maximum psychophysical form.

Espace Chenot is one of the two exclusive medical & wellness SPA signed by Chenot in Italy and has a highly qualified team of over 30 professionals, including Doctors, Therapists, Dietitians, Therapist Assistants, Osteopaths, Beauticians, and of course, Reception Managers and Receptionists.


Designed by Ettore Mocchetti, Architect and AD Italia Director, Espace Chenot expresses in its architecture designed for balance among full and empty spaces, among light, shadows, and water games - the same search for harmony that animates its being.

In this SPA in Franciacorta, natural light is plowed to wrap the space that develops on an area of 2,000 square metres, divided into two levels: the first one start with a reception area favoured by soft architectural volumes and curved lines; an area dedicated to medical departments follows, with areas dedicated to energy tests and dietary evaluations.


In the Herbal Tea Area, you can always find a different selection of herbal teas and infusions with drainage and antioxidant properties. From here, you get to private cabins for treatments: maximum privacy and direct contact with nature blend together to maximize the benefits of therapies. The area on the ground floor is dedicated to hydro-treatments and aqua-fitness.

A vast swimming pool with counter-current swimming and five types of whirlpool dominate the space of the Chenot SPA; next to which there is a sauna and a steam bath with aromatherapy along with a large gym equipped with the latest generation of Techno gym machines. Last but not least, in the most intimate heart of this evocative path, conceived and constructed according to the Chenot method, a reserved space, with an enveloping circular shape, is the realm of hydrotherapy, mud applications, and hydro-jets.
