UP­TOWN CHIC

Paris is a cap­i­tal city and prop­erty prices re­flect this; the 16th ar­rondisse­ment is no ex­cep­tion to this rule. Com­pa­ra­ble to Lon­don’s Kens­ing­ton and Chelsea, it has or­nate 19th-cen­tury build­ings, pres­ti­gious schools, mu­se­ums and, as it bor­ders the Bois de Boulogne park, it’s easy to see its at­trac­tion.

In the 16th, on the cor­ner of Av­enue Foch and Boule­vard Lannes, a spa­cious triple-as­pect apart­ment cap­tures both sun and views, which are so en­chant­ing in this part of Paris. Large liv­ing and din­ing rooms open out on to one of the bal­conies and there are three bed­rooms in­clud­ing a master suite. There’s a care­taker’s apart­ment for this 1910 build­ing and it’s for sale too.

From time to time the kings of France es­caped the hub­bub of city life to go hunt­ing near Fon­tainebleau
