Oberkampf, an area of Paris best known for its restaurants and bars, is also now home to the capital's first urban spa: l'Echappée. With natural light, exposed brick-work and polished concrete floors, l'Echappée anchors itself in a tasteful, contemporary luxury, providing a calming zen-like sanctuary for those seeking refuge from the bustle of the city.
On offer are a wide range of superlative treatments carried out by specialists in each field in beautiful treatment rooms. The miracle-working hour long Ayurvedic massage --which treats the mind and body holistically and releases all tension with a full body rub down--leaves you feeling both relaxed and revitalised and ought to be prescribed by doctors for all those suffering the effects of too much stress. Californian and hot stone massages are also on the menu, and the former can even be performed a deux for couples or best friends in the room equipped with two massage tables.
