The property is on the foothills of Mount Iti, in a forested area of the Sperchios valley. Its name derives from the thermal baths which existed in the settlement since antiquity. There is a recognised Thermal Spring on the property, known for its therapeutic properties since the 4th century BC and equal to the Thermal Baths in the cities of Royat, France, and Neuhelm, Germany, as regards the physical and chemical composition and the properties of the water. A hydrotherapy center is operating on the property, in a very good condition, with approximately 100 baths in use and an exterior pool. There are 3 hotels on the land and supporting facilities, whose renovation and re-operation, in combination with development in new sectors, will render the complex a pole of attraction for thermal and medical tourism.
The property is located within the Loutra Ypatis village, 5 km from the Ypati village and 4.5 km from the Lianokladi village. Access is via the new improved routing of the Athens-Thessaloniki National road (PATHE) from the Lamia interchange and then via the Lamia-Karpenisi Provincial Road. Its distance is 17 km from Lamia, 64 km from Karpenisi and 230 km from Athens (2.5 hours by car from the Athens International Airport).
The exact location and boundaries of the property are shown on the Google map.
