Paris is not just a capital city; it is primarily a place of dreams and romance. City of love, city of lights, city of history, of fashion, of culture and gastronomy.
Paris is the meeting place for people with passion, whose hearts are burning to come here. Consequently, houses and apartments are much sought-after. Hardly any of the 20 city districts have properties available; each area lures visitors with its own unique merits.
Whilst on the left bank of the Seine, students, intellectuals, and artists add a special flair, the wealthy prefer to purchase homes in dignified surroundings on the right bank. The residential areas in the arrondissements 1 to 8 boast some of the most famous sights in the city as well as countless museums and shopping galleries. The Quartier Latin in the 5th arrondissement offers a lively city atmosphere, and the 7th is particularly exclusive. But incomers can also strike lucky outside the centre: for relatively little money in the 11th and 13th arrondissements; a good infrastructure in the medium price range in the 14th and 15th arrondissements; or the more upmarket 16th, which has always been considered synonymous with wealth and elegance.
Paris spoils its over two million inhabitants and more than 30 million visitors annually with some of the most renowned sights in the world. The Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe, famous shopping districts like the Champs-Elysées, the Rue Faubourg-Saint Honoré and the Avenue Montaigne provide an impressive backdrop; multiple award-winning restaurants, enchanting bistros, street cafés and bakeries that have been the settings for many films, and a multitude of museums catering for all tastes in art draw many people to Paris.
