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
