What are our negotiators' favourite neighbourhoods?

"As the years go by, each neighbourhood, each street of a city, evokes a memory, an encounter, a sorrow, a moment of happiness. "Patrick Modiano

Are you planning to move to Paris and its surroundings? However, you don't know which districts to choose? Moving to a new place, alone or with others, is always an adventure. Choosing the right city and neighbourhood is essential, as feeling comfortable in your new environment will greatly contribute to your well-being. The Square's team has therefore decided to reveal its address book to you. We'll take you on a tour of our real estate negotiators' favourite neighbourhoods. I promise you, you'll keep this to yourself!

Anne-Sophie R: "For me, the Marais is one of the most beautiful areas of Paris. I love walking around and discovering the pretty little streets with cafés, tea rooms and art galleries. I love the restaurant Les Philosophes and its fabulous lunches! I also love the Châtelet district and more particularly the esplanade for its dance and party venues. It is one of the most dynamic areas of the capital where it is good to live, have a drink, eat and shop. There is a variety of establishments and something for everyone! It's the perfect place to relax and have a good time with family and friends. When I was younger, I loved crossing the Pont Alexandre on a scooter and admiring the beautiful monuments that make up the 8th arrondissement. I would also recommend the Louvre/Palais-Royal area for a stroll along the Tuileries Gardens, which will offer you a little respite from the city."

Sabine: "I really like the west of Paris. I would recommend the 16th and 17th arrondissements. The 16th arrondissement is generally considered to be one of the best districts in Paris. It is indeed a culturally dynamic place, which will guarantee you a certain intimacy. You can stroll through beautiful shops and nice little restaurants.The arrondissement includes mythical places such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Musée de l'Homme, the Fondation Louis-Vuitton, the Théâtre national de Chaillot, or the esplanade du Trocadéro where you can admire the most beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower and its illuminations! In my opinion, the 17th arrondissement is a pleasant district, which deserves to be discovered for its paradoxes, but also and above all for the little treasures it harbours, between its lively neighbourhood life, the typically Parisian markets and its charming bourgeois architecture. It is inhabited by the Parc Monceau, permeated by the Rue Cardinet at its end, embellished by the Cité des Fleurs, one of the most beautiful hidden streets in Paris."
Vitalé: "I chose the 7th arrondissement at the top of my list because I know it rather well from living there. Coming from the provinces, it's just the same. You find the atmosphere of a real market on Saturday mornings on Rue Cler, everyone greets you, the butcher, the greengrocer, the fishmonger! You are then 3 minutes away from one of the most beautiful panoramas of Paris to go running around the Champ de Mars on Sundays or, if you prefer, to have a drink on the quays near the Pont Alexandre III. There are also many exhibitions, with the Musée d'Orsay and the Musée du Quai Branly. It's a lively area, without being constantly disturbed. It's the right balance for me.

Florian: "My favourite place in Paris is the Avenue Junot in the 18th arrondissement. It's a place with beautiful perspectives, filled with sublime Haussmannian art deco buildings, cobbled streets, pretty houses and small hidden green spaces. There are many artists' studios to be seen. I love Montmartre, it's a neighbourhood with a lot of life and a bit of greenery. It's definitely one of the most charming areas of Paris. There are so many things to do there, you could spend a day there. The district is also full of spots, halfway between bars and cultural places, which will delight street art lovers and all those in search of places that are out of the ordinary."

Agathe: "Personally, I think that each district of Paris has its own charm, but I am particularly fond of the 9th arrondissement, nestled away from the main boulevards. Overflowing with many small shops sometimes hidden in unsuspected streets, creating surprise. Ideal for cabaret lovers, it is full of emblematic places like the Folies Bergère or the Casino de Paris. I think it's just the right balance between a peaceful neighbourhood life and the advantages of Parisian life. I also really like the 10th arrondissement and its many bohemian cafés along the Canal Saint-Martin. It's the perfect place to take a family walk, see the boats sailing and observe the hundred-year-old trees planted along the canal. I advise you to take a walk there, you will have the chance to discover a landscape like you rarely see in the capital! The streets of Oberkampf and its neighbouring streets in the 11th arrondissement, lined with trendy bars, will seduce you for this reopening of the terraces."

Adrien: "For my part, the Muette district in the 16th arrondissement is one of my favourite places. The architectural beauty of the area and the calm that reigns there will seduce you. You can find pleasant restaurants and terraces close to your home. The neighbourhood life will seduce you with its food shops and fresh produce markets. I also appreciate Montmartre for its charm and its warm atmosphere, like a small village in the city.The area is full of restaurants, theatres, cinemas and concert halls and offers a unique view of Paris. I would also recommend the 6th arrondissement and more specifically the Saint Germain Des Prés area, with its streets lined with art galleries and iconic cafés including Flore."

History, culture, restaurants, breathtaking architecture, Paris is full of different places that will delight you! Now you have all our tips for finding the right neighbourhood for you! So where are you ready to drop your bags?
