The Hôtel de Bourrienne is the only private residence that remains in Paris to recall the atmosphere of the Directoire and the Consulate. A series of small miracles has made this two hundred year continuity possible: since the end of the Age of Enlightenment, great speculators, financiers, manufacturers and captains of industry have succeeded one another within its walls in order to preserve a heritage that is rich in memories. After four years of ambitious restoration, the architecture and decorations are once again revealed with singularity and elegance.
