High-End Fashion Districts
If you love designer fashion, a huge plus about renting one of our apartments in the 7th is that you're a stone's throw away from the fabulous 'Triangle d'Or', located just the other side of the Seine. Incorporating the area around Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V, and Rue Francois 1er, this is where you'll find the finest Haute Couture shops in the world, including Dior, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, and many more. Continue on to the Champs-Élysées for more mainstream chains like Zara, Sephora and the Louis Vuitton flagship store.
Designer Depots / Consignment Stores

Outlet Malls near Paris
Combine a day trip to the Champagne region or to Disneyland Paris with a visit to one of France's most popular outlet malls. The McArthur Glen Outlet Shopping Mall located in Troyes is about 2 hours away from Paris, while the La Vallée Village outlet mall near Euro Disney takes around 1 hour by car. Both stock chic brand name labels at heavily reduced prices.
Antique Stores & Flea Markets
Drouot is the largest auction house in Paris. It is fascinating but difficult to actually buy there, as it is a serious auction house and one for the experts. Best option is to head to our most requested Flea Market spot: Puces de Clignancourt, Saint-Ouen, the antique Mecca of France. It is excellent for French antiques, vinyl records and vintage clothes. View our Flea Market Tour and be guided through the labyrinth to find your treasure.
