Paris' 8th Arrondissement

Paris’ 8th Arrondissement is another district of the city loaded with tourist attractions.  For those who know the area best, it can be subdivided into four major areas, the Champs Elysees, Triangle d’Or (Golden Triangle), the Monceau Park and St. Augustin.    Specific landmarks in the area include the famous Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde & the Elysee Palace.  If you’re staying in Paris for longer than a few days, its right bank location is an ideal place to rent a Paris vacation apartment, but be ready to fork out some money as for the most part it is the most expensive area in France.    


For the shopping enthusiast, Paris is considered by many to be one of the premier destinations for fashion and other than a few ultra chic boutique shops that most tourists will never find the Champs Elysees and the adjacent Triangle d’Or is where it all happens.   The 2km long Avenue Champs Elysees features dozens of the most well known names in fashion including the biggest Louis Vuitton store in the world that even features its own exhibition room.  Other than fashion, the area also houses an eclectic assortment of restaurants, cafes & bars that are sure to satisfy any craving.  Just don’t expect to find an affordable Paris apartment rental in the immediate area unless you’re willing to pay an astronomical price.   Rents are said to be as expensive as $800,000 per year for only about 300 square feet and is second only to New York’s Fifth Avenue as the most expensive strip of real estate in the world.


One of the more affordable areas to find a Paris vacation rental in the 8th Arrondissement is near Monceau Park and the St. Augustin districts.   The large tree-lined avenues featuring what could be considered Haussmann architecture create a quiet, serene environment and short term Paris rentals in this area tend to be a little larger and very affordable.   If you’re travelling with a loved one, Monceau Park is an ideally romantic destination to walk around, but is only open from sunrise to sunset.  For business travelers, there is also free Wifi anywhere in the park and is therefore a great place to relax and get some work done.  


Overall, there are definitely better value locations in the city to find a luxury Paris vacation apartment.  Just south of the 8th Arrondissement, the 7th offers a number of great places to stay, but for the dreamers out there, it’s a least fun to imagine what it would be like staying in a bourgeois loft overlooking the Champs Elysees strip.
