Among the most desirable in Neuilly sur Seine, the Saint-James neighbourhood is located between the Seine, the bois de Boulogne, rue Casimir Pinel and rue de la Ferme.
The name comes from Claude Baudard de Vaudésir de Sainte-Gemmes, treasurer of the French Navy under Louis XVI of France who built a folly to rival with that of the Compte d’Artois in the Bois de Boulogne. The building was set in a twelve hectare park. Today however only a part of the park remains and the property is unoccupied. This prestigious neighbourhood boasts a wealth of exceptional properties. Some streets and avenues are lined with luxurious private mansions, others with exceptionally appointed apartments.
Around the parc de la Folie Saint-James are some magnificent properties commanding beautiful views notably of the listed Folie Saint James. The collège Théophile Gautier and the lycée de la folie Saint James are in the park, and the Théophile Gautier gymnasium is nearby.
