Just imagine the life that could be yours. Step out from your chic Parisian pied-à-terre and mosey along the wide and inviting Haussmannian boulevard into the spring sunshine. You head for your now familiar local corner café, where the garçon knows your name as he brings your regular order of espresso and pain au chocolat. With the bustle and buzz of Europe’s most alluring capital as a soundtrack, you plan the day ahead. Will it be shopping or culture today? A credit card-wielding jaunt around Galeries Lafayette or a wander through your favourite museum, of which Paris has oodles to choose from?
If this all sounds like some rarefied dream sequence, think again. More and more people are choosing Paris as the place in which to buy a property and begin a new life. New statistics from INSEE (National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies) reveal that some 20,500 expats now live in or around the French capital, out of 135,000 living in France in total. Even if you buy-to-let, the fact that over 30 million people visited in 2009 will give you concrete lettings confidence. And such is the changing property buying scene there that – heavens above! – now you can even find a centrally located new build.
