The most beautiful apartment in Paris' Luxembourg Gardens

It truly is. This is not a rental with Ikea furniture, this is a family home, much loved, renovated and designed with care. Available to rent (no exchanges. In a historic building in the 6th, a few minutes from the Luxembourg and St Germain de Pres, We bought it in 2006 and spent a year gutting it to give it modern kitchen, electricity, laundry room, power showers, lots of cupboards - things you will never find in a Parisian apartment. It was four bedrooms but we wanted light and space so we knocked it into two big bedrooms, two ENORMOUS bathrooms ((one with walk in stone shower, the other a Victorian claw foot tub) a library/office, an amazing kitchen, built for a coo; dining room and sitting room with wood burning fireplace. Windows and tons of light. Full of charm, but ultra efficient. Concierge building. No dogs, no smokers. The neighborhood is the best in Paris - a bakery across the street, great restaurants, cafes, cinemas, shops... A sought after property that has been featured in films and photo shoots and is one of the most lovely places you will ever find.

She is a former adviser on the Syria conflict to the UNHCR, and has advised senior officials on policy for the EU, NATO and others.
