The best places in Paris when you are an ambassador


Diplomatic staff want to be close to their place of work. Be aware that most of the government institutions take place in the center and west of Paris. So what are the most popular districts for renting a furnished apartment when you work at the Embassy?

  • The 7th district is shaped like a diamond, but the Eiffel Tower's view makes it shine the most. A simple sight of the most famous monument in Paris can raise the stakes in a formidable way. For example, the Polish Embassy is blessed with a large terrace giving a splendid view of the Iron Lady. In the 7th district, there are also the National Assembly, the ministries, and renowned museums such as the Orsay Museum. With a rich housing stock, this arrondissement attracts a prestigious foreign clientele eager for exceptional apartments. Transactions can be high: with an average rent of 2,600 euros / m2 for furnished rentals, this district is one of the most expensive in Paris. Apartments in that district are highly prized by government staff and diplomatic institutions and most suitable for ambassadors due to the proximity of the institutions they work.

  • The influence of the Golden Triangle and the Champs Elysées contributes to the attractiveness of the 8th arrondissement. The real estate in this area is perceived as luxurious and prestigious. It is full of quite impressive Embassies, like Qatar and Kazakhstan on Rue de Tilsitt or the United States Embassy on Avenue Gabriel. The 8th arrondissement is also an economic engine for the capital, with nearly 10% of jobs concentrated there. This place has a varied real estate offer and beautiful addresses such as avenue Hoche or rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, which houses the Elysée Palace.
