Around 56Paris, the antique dealers’ neighborhood
Paris is one of the world’s great cities. And of course, there are many attractive neighborhoods in the French capital. And as buyers and listing agents, we cover them all.
But of course we have a fondness for our own location, here in the 7th arrondissement (district).
To the north is the Seine and its pedestrian riverbanks. While to the east there is Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and to the west, Les Invalides.
This is also the antique dealers’ neighborhood, where generations of dealers and gallery owners sell fine antiques and art from all over the world.
This area stands out with its Parisian refinement and understated elegance. All around are period buildings that mostly date from the 18th or 19th centuries. It is timeless Paris.
A mix of culture, beauty, and savoir-vivre
Nearby are many art galleries and landmark museums such as the world-famous Musée d'Orsay, and the Musée Maillol with its sculptures by Aristide Maillol, as well as works by famous artists such as Degas, Matisse, and Cezanne.
There are also state buildings here like the residence of the Prime Minister, the prestigious university of Sciences Po, along with many boutiques, restaurants, and street cafés.
When walking down the famous Rue du Bac, you’ll come across the recently-renovated palace Hôtel Lutetia and the high-end department store, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche.
This mix of culture, beauty, and savoir-vivre makes this neighborhood so desirable.
It’s no surprise it’s one of the most sought-after neighborhoods of Paris.
What’s in a name?
The story behind the name of our Rive Gauche real estate agency is really quite simple!
We are at number 56 on Rue de Verneuil in Paris, and have been since opening our doors in 2015.
Managing Director, Kerstin Bachmann chose the name to create a distinctive brand, something easy to remember, and also something that reflects this fantastic part of the city where we work.
She says, “People sometimes ask me, but what will you do if you move from number 56?”
“In that case, I will have a story to tell, because my first agency has always been at 56 Rue de Verneuil!”
