Why Buy Property in the 7th Arrondissement?

 It is no wonder that this area is one of the most sought-after areas in the whole of Paris. It is associated with nobility and the upper class, so it would make sense that the area is actually shaped somewhat like a diamond. It is therefore one of the most expensive areas to live in Paris, but due to this, it oozes class and sophistication and is actually one of the safest areas around.

Tourist Spots

Many tourists head straight to the 7th Arrondissement on arrival in Paris, just to view the amazing sights of la tour Eiffel and Musee d’Orsay, which is probably the second most famous museum in Paris, after the Louvre. It is filled with cultural places to visit such as Hôtel des Invalides, Madeleine’s magical neighbourhood or perhaps Les Egouts de Paris, which was the inspiration behind the Phantom of the Opera.

Surrounding the Eiffel Tower is the amazing Champs de Mars gardens, a stunning park, where you can just walk through and soak up the Parisian life. Since most tourists just come to view the Eiffel tower and aren’t aware of just how truly gorgeous the area is, many parts can be extremely tranquil at times. So it is rather peaceful to just stroll through the cobblestoned streets, exploring the cute village-like atmosphere.

Shopping in the 7th Arrondissement

If you are a shopaholic you will be living on the doorstep of some of the biggest names in the fashion world. Le Bon Marché on the Rue de Sèvres is situated in the 7th Arrondissement. It is the oldest department store in Paris and is a tourist attraction in itself. It hosts some of the top designers and you will be rubbing shoulders with Paris’ elite whilst you shop.
