South of the Seine, the perception of prestigious real estate is quite different. With only 6 arrondissements on the counter, the Left Bank is often seen as a small Parisian enclave reserved for an elite comprising artists, musicians, intellectuals from Saint-Germain-des-Prés, universities and bourgeois dwellers, nostalgic for a glorious past, attached to a somewhat provincial neighborhood life that the rest of Paris secretly envies. These clichés are quite misleading, because it shelters in no way marginal monuments since they are the Eiffel Tower, the National Assembly, the Senate, the Invalides, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Musée d'Orsay. Famous venues near which many of us would be delighted to  buy a deluxe house in Paris, because their environments are conducive to handsome properties.

A cultural patrimony and deluxe real estate

So even if you already own a property on the Right Bank, in the most coveted districts such as the Golden Triangle, the Champs Élysées, the area surrounding Place Vendôme, the Madeleine or historical Places des Vosges, nothing prevents you from walking in the footsteps of Voltaire, Picasso, Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin and Gérard Depardieu. Thus, you can treat yourself to a special gift in an area where the price or real estate will always increase over time. All you need to do is to find the deluxe villa for sale in the Île-de-France, which will make you a regular in this Latin Quarter, so endearing with its allure of old black and white postcards and offer you an address that is worth a detour.

A house with precious period furniture

Hidden in the back of a handsome building near the Carré des Antiquaires, rallying point for collectors of precious furniture stemming from various châtaux and palaces, this town house offers both calm and charm, as strong points of the place. Indoor living spaces could have their place in a high-end decorating magazine. It is accessed by a small paved courtyard, before discovering its 200 m² of living space.

The equipped kitchen, the dining room / library, the bedrooms, the bathrooms and the master suite with a majestic character, enriched with a star dressing room, benefit from very upscale amenities. Essential assets to convince you to come back to Paris ...
