Here in the First Arrondissement - the historic and geographic heart of Paris, we have just renovated two lovely apartments! The building used to be home to a Duke who held a weekly salon always attended by Benjamin Franklin, when he was ambassador to France. We have taken the ground floor space - facing the street and courtyard - and made a charming one bedroom apartment with a mezzanine, and an attached studio apartment. They can be rented separately or together.<BR><BR>This is our studio apartment, with a fully equipped open kitchen.
