HomeCristal Spa


The first Cristal Spa opens its doors in 2010, at the same time as the first and still today, the only 5-star hotel in the Aravis Massif, Au Coeur du Village ***** - Relais & Châteaux in La Clusaz.
A madeleine of Gaston Pollet-Villard, patriarch of the family and still at the head of the Groupe PVG in memory of his first job, salesman then importer of semi-precious stones. The story goes that he began by collecting stones from the Aravis on which he deposited chamois figurines which he sold to souvenir shops under the amused eye and a puzzled point of his father Charles. Gaston quickly emulated and his small business grew as his ideas and his ambition...
Quickly, he imported quartz, crystals, amethysts from Brazil, Madagascar, ... and developed his own sales network throughout France. Once prosperous, he gave way to the promotion and construction, for which we will always find the presence of the stone Aravis, dear to its roots cluses.

It was during the construction of the future spa of the Imperial Palace ****, when, the beginning of name proposals for this new place swarmed in the minds of everyone, that the idea of ​​creating the brand Cristal Spa was born. Finally, why not develop spaces specific to today's and tomorrow's institutions?
Choosing the brands with which we would collaborate was the result of in-depth reflection as it was important for us to create a symbiosis between places and products.
  • Alpeor for its rigorous, transparent Made In Switzerland know-how, its high performance formulas based on organic alpine plants certified natural and healthy
  • Cinq Mondes for its natural products based on vegetable oil, paraben and silicone, inspired by beauty rituals of the world.
We decided to offer you a pleasant moment of relaxation at Cristal Spa. A swimming pool, a hammam, a sauna ... a first step towards letting go; a sensory experience to discover in a lake version in Annecy and mountains in La Clusaz.
Place to voluptuousness, the sweetness of life, the time that is agreed to take care of himself, his body and let go of his mind.
