Real Estate in the Paris Arrondissements
Paris is organized into 20 different districts or arrondissements as they are known by locals. Each is numbered, and are organized in a clockwise spiral pattern similar to a snail shell on a map. Each arrondissement is also represented by its own municipality, with its own elected mayor.
Not sure which arrondissement you're in? not a problem! Each Paris arrondissement is easily identifiable by the last two numbers of an address' postal code. For example, if you have an address that is located in postal code 75006, that building can be found in the 6th arrondissement (or 6eme arrondissement in French).
The type of real estate found in each arrondissement varies significantly from location to location. Similar to New York City's boroughs, certain arrondissements feel more residential while others feature shopping, cafes, nightlife, etc. To learn more about real estate in the individual arrondissements in Paris, click the links below.
