Mineral water spring[edit]

Among the numerous ponds and springs which dot the surrounding Compiègne Forest, the Spring of Saint-Sauveur is widely regarded as therapeutic.[1] The spring, which is a pair of two separate mineral water springs, runs both hot and cold and is reputed to provide relief for rheumatism and other ailments.[2]
