The 9th is an area that Parisians love and it is easy to see why: a good mix of fresh markets, street shopping, nightlife, theaters, and affordable new restaurants keeps the neighborhoods bustling and make this area highly sought after to live.
Just south of Pigalle (which Parisians have started to affectionately call SoPi in honor of SoHo) down to Saint Georges and around the rue des Martyrs is one of the most charming, young, hip and livable areas in Paris. The fire has caught on, and great properties now command a high price here too.
Overpriced or historically undervalued? In the area of Martyrs-St Georges, the trendiest neighborhood in the 9th arrondissement, it’s hard to find anything outside the 50 to 80m² size, and the prices are the highest in the area. For a larger family apartment look in the neighborhoods near the Grands Boulevards around La Fayette-Châteaudun, or the streets around rue Clichy and rue Amsterdam, where a nice-sized apartment can be had for less.
