Karlovy Vary, a little-known spa town in the west Bohemia region of the Czech Republic, came in as the cheapest spa break destination, costing just £76 for a massage, meal and room in a hotel. Unsurprisingly, Budapest – known for its excellent spas – came in second, with a cost of just £95.
But those looking for sunshine and Spanish vibes should head to Granada, the beautiful Moorish city in country's southern parts. Here you can indulge at spa and hotel for just over £105. Palma in Mallorca and Tenerife in the Canary Islands were other Spanish destinations for good-value spa breaks.
The only British destination was Bath, in England, which is famous for its healing waters and was a favourite of well-heeled Romans who would come to bathe in its springs. See below for the full list of brilliant European spa breaks:
