The shop opened its doors in Megève

Around the same time we installed a Nordic bath at the summit of the Rochebrune ski runs, to the astonishment of skiers. The Norwegian bath at the slopeside restaurant delighted children, and those children are now adults.


Jan Sidérius and Evert-Jan van Hellenberg Hubar decided to launch the concept of Nordic baths, and thus Størvatt was born.

The first show room in Europe opened its doors in Megève, a strategic location at the crossroads of France, Switzerland, and Italy, and a region with substantial tourist activity. Numerous well-known hotels began installing Størvatt hot tubs, including the Fermes de Marie, the Chalet Hotel du Mont d’Arbois, and the Blizzard in Val d’Isère. The international clientele of these hotels thus had the opportunity to discover the Nordic bath in the idyllic setting of these charming establishments


Jan Sidérius discovered the Nordic wood fired hot tub in Alaska.

Charmed by the concept, he decided to install a tub at his chalets in Les Gets, Haute Savoie, at an altitude of 1,300 metres. Simple to use, the hot tub delighted his children and friends. In response to the enthusiasm generated by the tub and after a short period of market research, it turned out that the concept was practically non-existent in Europe.
