I know there are a few Paris threads going on at the moment so sorry to start another but I have a specific question. We are a British family moving over to Paris in the summer with a 1 and a 3 year old. We have pre school options in either the 15th or the 8/17th. Imagine we like the schools equally where should we live? I would love it if you could contrast the 2 areas. When I say 15th I am thinking about the part near the 7th and I guess the 17th would be the bit near Monceau. It would also be great to get an idea of what a decent 3 bed place would cost rental wise in these areas.
I like the 17th way better than the 15th - nicer architecture, wider pavements, better infrastructure. 17th is more international and Jewish, 15th more trad and Catholic (don't know if that makes a difference to you).
