Paris: 18th arrondissement
The famous 18th arrondissement of Paris is best known for Sacré Coeur, the iconic white domed church at the highest point in Paris in Montmartre. At the bottom of the hill, the Moulin Rouge cabaret defines a different spirit and a different history, of this eclectic arrondissement. The streets of Montmartre bustle with sketch artists and tourists, keeping it lively but somewhat redundant unless you know how to get off the beaten path. On the back side of the hill from Sacré Coeur, you will find some of the most charming, tree-lined streets in Paris, and Paris’ best flea markets toward the northern edge of the city. Rue Caulaincourt and Avenue Junot are full of cafés, wonderful bakeries, and one-off shops selling anything from porcelain doll parts to antique wind-up toys. The rare hôtels particuliers sell quickly and often by word-of-mouth when they come on the market.
Average price: €9,420/m2; -5.7% over one year; +26.3% over 10 years
There is quite a range in price among the different neighborhoods of the 18th. Expect to pay Marais-like prices for a large apartment with a great view and a terrace or garden in select areas of Montmartre, but prices fall fast toward the Goutte d’Or neighborhood, where they are among the lowest in Paris. The neighborhood near the Metro Guy Moquet, toward the 17th arrondissement, is coming to life with bakeries, shops and a young cosmopolitan feel – get in while you can at that price. Around Abbesses and rue Lepic the price is quite high and in demand.
