Protecting the planet begins with simple actions, a fair and responsible attitude. At Le Rêve d’Aghon, we ask our clients to respect a few simple rules: do not leave the lights on unnecessarily, sort their waste, consume water reasonably…
In addition, at Le Rêve d’Aghon, we used simple and ecological materials. We have tried to work with the most local materials possible.

↑ Our wooden furniture is mostly late 19th or early 20th century from markets or flea markets, sometimes made of recycled wood or “homemade” metal.
↑ For maximum comfort, our mattresses and pillows are made of 100% natural rubber latex and organic cotton. Their 100% French manufacture is carried out in Tourcoing (France) by Matelas No Stress.

↑ Our crockery is made of iron earthenware from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.
TO THE ORIGINS OF AGHON….
The discovery of the waters of Bagnères-de-Bigorre, a small town in the county of Bigorre in Gascony, is lost in the mists of time… But it is assumed that the city was built almost seven centuries before the foundation of Rome, and that its springs were already successfully used.
The Romans conquered the Gauls and discovered Bagnères, which they frequented for its healthy waters. Thanks to its medicinal and mineral waters, the Romans called the city of Bagnères “Vicus Aquensis”.
The people of Bagnères, wishing to protect themselves under the protection of Caesar Augustus, built a temple which they dedicated to Diana, the emperor’s favourite god. However, an inscription, a remnant of a temple that existed near the village of Asté, is not dedicated to Diana but to another God named Aghon.
There is no trace of this Celtic God anywhere other than around Bagnères. Another discovered stele proves that Aghon was venerated long before Diana…
Aghon was actually “The Divinized Fountain”. “Agh” meaning water and “on” good.
