This neighborhood along the “rive droite” is without doubt the most historical and touristic neighborhood in Paris, boasting unique properties: l’île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river Seine and place of the foundations of the capital, or l’île Saint-Louis. The attractions are endless, from the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Hôtel de Ville, or the Beaubourg Art Museum built by Renzo Piano. The neighborhood also embraces a part of Marais, the charming historical area turned trendy with bars and stylish boutiques. The ex-privileged aristocrat spot, Marais still offers a prestigious identity conveyed by luxurious buildings and “hotels particuliers”, or rather exclusive townhouses. The luxurious place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris, is well known as it accommodates some of the most influential personalities in France.
The numerous attractions of the district put the prices in the real estate market above the capital’s average. The neighborhood is made up of four areas: Saint-Merri, Saint-Gervais, Arsenal and,the particularly prestigious Notre-Dame. The luxury properties here are rare and therefore very competitive: the historical context and the view of the river Seine are much sought-after by buyers. The surroundings of place des Vosges, another important area for luxury homes, home to high-end apartments with extremely high prices. Due to its touristic vocation, the fourth arrondissement doesn’t always offer a neighborhood life; with the exception of Marais with its numerous neighborhood stores and a lively night life that attracts well-off young professionals
