The finest French art of living on Île de la Jatte in Paris

This custom-built option remains extremely rare in the world of residential building.


Some Paris neighborhoods, such as the famous ‘Golden Triangle ’are very popular with foreign visitors. However, many HNWI choose lesser-known districts, where discretion and luxury go hand-in-hand.

Neuilly-sur-Seine is the perfect example, located just ten minutes from one of the most beautiful avenues in the world: the Champs Elysees. Located here is the quiet green isle of Jatte/  Île de la Jatte.

The Ile de la Jatte or Île de la Grande Jatte is an island on the river Seine, at the very gates of Paris, in the communes of Neuilly-sur-Seine and Levallois, Hauts-de-Seine. It is 7 km distant from the towers of Notre Dame and 3 km from the Etoile. It is nearly 2 km long and nearly 200 m wide at its widest point. Its name translates as “Island of the Bowl” or “Island of the Big Bowl”.

It is best known as the setting for Georges Seurat’s pointillist oil painting, “Un Dimanche après-midi à l’Île de la Grande Jatte” (A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte) (1884-6 and 1889) and also for the Stephen Sondheim musical, Sunday in the Park with George.
