As many of you know, I have a “thing” for L’Appartment 217
and Stéphane Jaulin.
To me, this is the perfect French spa. I have never been a fan of overly perfumed products and over-the-top décor in spas. I want true results and a clear idea of what the brand is. L’Appartment 217 was started by Stéphane Jaulin, who wanted to create an environment of wellness, peace, and relaxation. You start out with an alkaline green shot for balancing your pH, then a cup of detox tea, and you’re off to your treatment.
When I was there, I saw several Paris models who were sent twice a week from the agencies to have a treatment in the Iyashi Dome, a slimming and detoxifing ceramic cylinder inspired by the Japanese tradition of hot sand baths. They said it absolutely got rid of all cellulite. I love the Iyashi dome and can’t wait for my next treatment, which will only be three hours away from Amsterdam on the Thalys train.
I also love Stéphane’s two-hour facial treatment. It’s so relaxing: layers and layers of an amazing massage and you feel like you have been away for a very long time. Stéphane is so knowledgeable on alkalining your body. He’ll sit with you and give you a full treatment plan to take home with you.
When you go to Paris and visit L'Appartment 217
, tell them Jill Bucy sent you. While I may not always be in the studio, I'll be seeking out the best of the best in the world of natural skincare!
