Paris and greater Paris region
Description Page Pays-Paris
Paris is magical. It caters for royalty, presidents, movie stars, artists, musicians and many thousands of visitors from all over the world. They come to explore its richness, marvel at its sights, and indulge in fine foods and entertainment. It represents a historical crossroad of cultures and curiosities.
France's capital offers sidewalk cafés, gourmet restaurants, local flea markets, international antique dealers, cobbled streets, grand boulevards and much more. The Château of Versailles stands just outside with its noble park and fountains. The Fontainebleau forest to the south is famous for rock climbing and Giverny, where Monet lived and created his own garden, lies to the west. Whatever your interest or desire, Paris will satisfy your appetite.
With two main international airports, Paris is linked to every major city in the world. It boasts six train stations servicing the TGV, Regional Express and Greater Paris lines, and a high performance public transportation system. Truly an international hub, it is under 3 hours from London on the Eurostar, one and a half hours from Brussels and the same from Madrid by plane. To complete the connection, all of France's principal motorways lead to and from Paris.
Homes to suit all tastes
Home purchasers who have always dreamed of owning a Parisian property will have a vast range of choice. An elegant flat in a 19th century building designed by Baron Haussmann, or a 17th century townhouse in the Marais district. An artist's studio near the vineyards of Montmartre, a hotel particulier behind the Luxembourg gardens or a stone's throw from the Tuileries. Each style and period has its charm and of course, its price.
