Empress Eugénie popularized the thermal baths of this region at the end of the 19th century, and in return the villagers baptised this town after her. Then, in 1973, Michel and Christine Guérard made the village world-famous by putting together one of France's most fashionable thermal retreats, which became one of the birthplaces of nouvelle cuisine, thanks to the great talents of chef Michel.
