Flaunting irresistible charm, the 6th arrondissement offers a lifestyle widely appreciated by Parisian, French and international clients. For Jules Caris, based for over two decades on Rue Mazarine, the 6th arrondissement is one of the most appealing in Paris : “Its central geographic position is, of course, one of its strong points, in immediate proximity to the Seine and all the landmarks iconic of Paris : the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, Notre-Dame, the Panthéon, the Sorbonne, the Luxembourg Gardens.
More recently, it has become a hub for fashion, luxury and hotels, with the new Hôtel Lutetia and the opening of Le Cheval Blanc. It is now a pivot of Parisian chic, French refinement, culture, history, but also university life. Living in the 6th arrondissement is a must, it means benefitting from the ideal vision of Parisian life. Residents in the 6th arrondissement can be split into three population categories : old residents who have been here for over 30 years (such as myself), who recognise each other every day in a café, restaurant, at the market or in the street.
Then there are new arrivals, from Paris or the provinces, who have made financial progress and want to benefit from the qualities of the 6th arrondissement with its renowned schools. Finally, there are foreign buyers. Twenty years ago, there were lots of Italians in the neighbourhood. Today, this third category of the population is more diverse. Among our most recent buyers, a Japanese couple connected with the fashion industry, who acquired a property on the Carrefour Croix-Rouge.
No neighbourhood is protected from market volatility or economic cycles, though the 6th is well-prepared to resist a slowdown over the short term, but also to pursue its long-term growth. Buyers are also aware of this.For the present, I can confirm that demand remains very strong. Even to the point that, in the case of a property uniting the four rare qualities of urban homes, ie. quietness, light, an outdoor area and a view, the seller is in a position to meet particularly high demands”.
