The story of a dinner hosted at a Paris apartment by American writer Dorie Greenspan – re-told in the New York Times – is bursting with inspiration for the international property buyer.
Do you dream of a Paris apartment with Eiffel Tower views? A friendly neighbourhood butcher, baker or fromage maker? An eclectic social circle? It’s no surprise that Paris property captivates even the most businesslike of global buyers.
The good news, however, is that your wishlist for a romantic new life in the City of Light is surprisingly achievable. Like Greenspan, who’s lived part-time in the 6th arrondissement for over 20 years, you can make your dream a reality – with a little help from the Winkworth France property experts.
Greenspan's atmospheric account of shopping, cooking and entertaining at home in Saint-Germain-des-pres is accompanied by images of her typically photogenic 6th arrondissement apartment. This Monday night supper sums up the extraordinary quality of everyday life in Paris perfectly – where exceptional cuisine, culture and real estate really are the norm.
