Best for now or never: Paris

Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

Now that Prési­dent Macron has taken up res­i­dence in the Élysée Palace, there are high hopes that he’ll keep France on a steady eco­nomic course. How­ever, what­ever hap­pens in the world, Paris will al­ways be Paris—and there will al­ways be a de­mand.

‘What­ever may be hap­pen­ing on the in­ter­na­tional stage, in the na­tional elec­tions or in the lo­cal econ­omy, events very rarely have an ef­fect on the prop­erty mar­ket here,’ says Susie Hol­lands of Vingt Paris. ‘The city has an eter­nal ap­peal. In sim­ple terms, stock is low and we have more buy­ers than avail­able prop­erty; the mar­ket here is über-re­silient.’

A few steps from the Hô­tel des In­valides and down a se­cluded dead-end street is this five-bed­room house, which over­looks a Ja­panese-in­spired pa­tio gar­den. €9.8 mil­lion. Sav­ills (020–7016 3740)
