(1 - A) Ben Franklin's Salon

Ben Franklin's Salon

This apartment has a lovely living room with a fully equipped open kitchen and a mezzanine that could sleep two. There is a separate bedroom that sleeps two in a comfortable, old-fashioned tapestry bed. The bathroom has a low ceiling and exposed stone wall.  There is a claw-foot tub and a separate shower. The kitchen has four top burners, an oven, dish-washer, microwave, clothes washer-dryer, small refrigerator with freezer, small appliances, pots, pans, utensils, dishes, glasses, flatware, etc.  The apartment has a large, flat-screen television, high-speed internet access and WIFI, the telephone includes free calls to most countries. 

From the living room, there is a fixed window looking out to a very quiet street - hard to believe you are in the middle of a bustling city!  The bedroom gives out onto the beautfully maintained, quiet courtyard.  The apartment is on the ground floor with the door coming into the living room from the courtyard.  There is also a door to the bedroom from the courtyard, if , for example, you have kids in the mezzanine and you want to leave and enter without going through the living room.  The mezzanine is only 1 meter high, and the mattress further decreases the height - it requires a wee tad of agility.  We do not recommend it for children younger than six or anyone who would be uncomfortable in very low crawl spaces.

About Me

My photo
Frankly, I never thought I'd end up living in Paris but - you see, I met a man. On a ski trip - Alps - chalet - fireplace - well, it's been twenty years. I can't give you the complete insider's guide to Paris yet, (I believe that takes three generations) but I can give you an ex-New Yorker's guide to this fabulous City of Lights. Our first studio was my husbands - that's where we lived once we decided to share a continent. We were there until our son was about negative-one-month old, and we didn't want to have to convert the bidet into a bassinet. Once we moved, I started renting out that apartment and everything fell into place. As an architect, I love fixing up the apartments, and as an ex-pat, I love meeting the people who come to enjoy their vacations in Paris. Now, we’ve also bought a property in the Loire Valley, and have just finished renovating that into several fabulous vacation homes – one of them is in a cave! You’ve got to see the pictures, it is a wonderful place – and the location is perfect for exploring the region – the chateaux, the wine, the scenery, it’s beautiful.
