Paris 15, eclectic chic


This vast, multi-faceted arrondissement spreads across the southwest of the capital. Modern –on the banks of the Seine–, village-like –Rue de la Convention, Rue du Commerce– and chic –La Motte-Picquet, Breteuil– it draws families thanks to its abundance of shops, schools, green spaces, museums, cinemas and theatres. Likewise, foreign buyers are in search of main residences and pieds-à-terre here close to the tourist attractions (Tour Montparnasse, Eiffel Tower, Invalides, Champ-de-Mars, pop-up Grand Palais). 

The real estate market

Over the last five years, the market has seen a price rise of around 13%, reaching an average of €10,000 per square metre, although prices were stable in 2021. Between Convention and Commerce, prices range from €12,000 and €14,000 per sq.m while the districts further to the north, on the edge of the 7th arrondissement – La Motte-Picquet, Breteuil – can reach sales of €17,000 to €20,000 per sq.m even.

Our advice

The highlights of this arrondissement are the schools (EAB, ENC Blomet), the proximity to the shops and parks, and the public transport services. Each neighbourhood has its own specific characteristics. We’re here to introduce you to each.
