Vogue's list of the most beautiful spa pools in Paris in which to cool off
In its article "Palmarès des plus belles piscines de spa où se rafraîchir à Paris", Vogue presents the 8 most beautiful spas in Paris to cool off in:
Recently inaugurated, the Narcisse Blanc is a 5-star hotel in the heart of a peaceful district of the 7th arrondissement, between the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides. Here, behind the majestic Haussmann façade, Art Deco and contemporary art take pride of place in this setting with its hushed, luminous and timeless ambience. So it's only logical that Clarins, always on the lookout for unique locations for its spas in Paris, should invest in this address to lavish its holistic vision of well-being. A 13-meter-long azure pool with counter-current swimming, whirlpool, hammam, wooden sauna, ice fountain, fitness room with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment... It's a no-brainer! Just like the Tonic or Relax Essential Oil Balance Massage, which, for 60 minutes, relieves the slightest muscular tension and restores lost energy. At the same time, Dr. Olivier Courtin-Clarins and Chef Bruno Aubin have created a new wellness menu for the hotel's Cléo restaurant. Like a Clarins signature of its holistic vision of beauty. Together, they celebrate seasonal produce and thoughtful cooking, to preserve the foods and flavors of nature. The starter is a salad of shredded carrots, bistro-style, but with a rainbow twist: yellow, white, orange and purple. A must if you want to fill up on beta-carotene. For the main course, the iodized notes of cod fillet and shrimp broth counterbalance the herbaceous flavors of coriander and Thai cebette, and the creamier flavors of al dente orecchiette. For dessert, a pear is poached in a "responsible" infusion of peeled fruit and citrus peel. Sprinkled with crunchy honey tuiles, sage oil and a few fresh almonds. A pure delight.
