The epicenter of luxury shopping, 5-star hotels, 3-star Michelin restaurants and glamorous clubs, the 8th is the flashy side of Paris.
While most of the bling and glitter stays within the golden triangle – bordered by three stations, Étoile, Concorde, and Pont l’Alma – throughout the rest of the 8th one finds neighborhoods with a more urban feel and every-day shops and markets. The area around Parc Monceau is especially sought-after as it is calm, residential, and consistently beautiful buildings.
Located on the right bank of the River Seine, and centered on the Champs-Élysées, the 8th arrondissement is one of Paris’s main business districts, together with the 1st, 9th, 16th and 17th arrondissement.
The golden triangle of Etoile-Concorde-Alma has gone platinum. A luxury apartment on avenue Montaigne can sell for top prices, and on neighboring streets prices are not far behind. Avenues Hoche and Friedland, are an area that particularly attracts foreign buyers in addition to Paris residents. Apartments larger than 200m² are plentiful in this historically wealthy district and so are rather reasonable prices.
