Living in Paris

Who does not want to be living in Paris? The French capital, often named the city of lights or the city of love, is bursting with culture, history and romance. The city is divided by the Seine river and is dotted with historic monuments. Everybody knows the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Together with other attractions like the Sacre Coeur basilica, the Champs-Élysées, the Montmartre area, and the Louvre museum, they make the city into a huge tourist magnet. By buying your own apartment, you can wake up in your own bed. After a petit-déjeuner with a croissant and a cappuccino you’re all ready to start exploring this wonderful city.
