You’ve now decided you are moving to Paris, but where would you like to live? Paris is not as big as London, that’s for sure but each area (arrondissement) is different from one another.

LB-RB will help you with that and will make a series of articles in its blog to explain the specificities of each areas.


Situated on the Right Bank of the River Seine and centred on the Champs-Élysées, the 8th is one of Paris’s main business districts.

It is also the location of many places of interest, among them the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde, as well as the Élysée Palace, official residence of the President of France.

London equivalent

The Triangle d’Or (Golden Triangle) where Avenue Montaigne is located, could be compared to Knightsbridge and Sloane street. Generally, the 8th has a bit of a Mayfair vibe, Central, beautiful, luxury shopping, art galleries, Palaces and nice restaurants.

Who lives there?

A lot of people work there but generally do not live there. The population would be comparable to the one in Knighstbridge.

What type of property?

Large apartments and Hotel Particuliers. Not many schools around.
