Luxury homes in Paris are the crème de la crème of the world’s upscale real estate market. The city oozes je ne sais quoi in every corner, from the arts and culture scene to fashion and food, and even its vibrant history.
Indeed, Paris is the perfect city for anyone wants to indulge in round-the-clock decadence and owning a home in the metropolis also brings with it a slight touch of prestige. It is a status symbol and even more so if you own or rent a house in high-class neighbourhoods of the 6th, 7th, 8th and 16th arrondissements.
Prices per square meter can often reach as high as USD 15,000 per square meter, but for that, you own the title deeds to some of the most desirable and iconic homes on the world’s real estate market.
