We are moving to Paris in June and have no idea where to live, I love Le Jardin de Luxembourg but other than that we need to be somewhere easy for my husband to get to work at le defence and somewhere good for families. Please help with ideas!!!Thank you

Hi Emma, If your husband is at La Defense, the 14, 15, 16,17 arrondissements are probably best for you, depending on your budget. There are loads of families in all of these arrondissements & all have access to parks, good luck!

Hi Emma! I agree with the above response. More specifically, the upper 17th is great if youre looking for more affordable Parisian living but still a nice, clean family environment. Look perhaps around Batignolles. Its also good location for bus lines and metro commutes to La Defence. If youre looking around Jardin de Luxembourg than its going to be more expensive because its the increasingly and always trendy Left Bank and youre neighboring to the Latin Quarter. Not to mention, youre golden for commutes on buses, metros or RER lines despite a tedious connection to La Defence. So, that comes with a cost. If you want to be "close" to this area but on a more friendly, human budget, than I suggest the 13th or even the 5th if you have a little extra to squeeze. The 13th near and around metro Les Gobelins is a wonderful area. Hope this helps and good luck.
