BELLES DEMEURES

In the heart of the sixth arrondissement, a chic district of the capital, you will find some real gems in a luxury building.

An attraction for artists

The sixth arrondissement is renowned for its historic artistic heritage. Throughout the centuries, it has welcomed great figures of romance, intellectuals and scriptwriters. The Café de Flore and the Deux Magots are still marked by their history, having been the place where great novels were written, for example, the author Guillaume Apollinaire went there regularly. Also, the brasseries make the reputation of the sixth arrondissement, like the one located on the Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés, which probably seduced many artists like Simone de Beauvoir or Jean-Paul Sartre. This phenomenon of attraction of intellectuals is still current, indeed to buy a property in the sixth arrondissement is to increase one's chances of having a writer for neighbour.

An ancient and discreet heritage

Like most of the beautiful arrondissements of Paris, the sixth arrondissement is embellished by its architectural heritage. Indeed, the Carrousel bridge, the Odéon theatre and the Luxembourg garden are all places that have inspired numerous novels. Also, you can find the Saint-Supplice church and the Beaux-Arts faculty, which recalls the artistic history of the sixth arrondissement. The area is also home to a number of houses of worship, art galleries and salons such as the Closerie des Lilas, where various artists and intellectuals can be found.

Premium location in a quiet area

For example, in the Mabillon district, you will find a second floor flat in a luxury building, surrounded by beautiful arcades and schools.
