This Parisian neighborhood, one of the most historical, embraces the Latin neighborhood, appreciated at an international level for its typical Parisian lifestyle. Elegance dominates and the tree-lined avenues Saint-Michel and Saint-Germain perfectly represent the image that Baron Haussmann wished to give to the city in the nineteenth century: the grand routes , lined with high end properties, offer a formal and luxurious identity. The neighborhood however has maintained the charm of its past with its historic pedestrian streets full of life, which includes the famous Mouffetard Street. The neighborhood is also associated with numerous students and intellects that attend the prestigious schools and universities such as Sorbonne, founded in the thirteenth century. This crowd contributes to the creation of a young and cultured dimension, where the prestigious boutiques run alongside the much attended cafe’s.
The neighborhood’s luxury real estate market is one of the most expensive of the capital. The four areas Jardin des Plantes, La Sorbonne, Saint-Victor and Val de Grâce are all very popular both for intellectuals and wealthy families attracted by the renowned education system on offer and the pleasant atmosphere. However, sales are restricted given that 70% of the residents are lettings and many of the residents are students. Nevertheless, you can purchase high-end properties in elegant period buildings, whilst the prestigious ample apartments in Haussmannian buildings are amongst the most sought after by the fortunate buyers. There is no doubt that living by the Sorbonne, the Pantheon or the avenues of Saint Michel and Saint Germain is a true status that you pay for with gold.
