Just looking to get some general opinions of which are some of the nicer areas for living as well as being cheap/reasonably priced.

Thankyou for any help

I live in the 3rd district, very nice & central but the prices rose during the past 3 years, still you may find decent rents depending on the areas.
the eleventh district is also quite interesting and cheaper, generally speaking.

send private messages if you need more info.

You can check this new site In Paris Now http://www.inparisnow.com/ - it has daily updates about life in Paris.

I run Bonapart Consulting http://www.bonapartconsulting.com/ and I'm pretty clued up on the best places to live but we almost exclusively work for clients who want to buy property here in Paris.

If you drop me an email offline with your likes and dislikes I can steer you in the right direction as far as the best parts of town go - susie@bonapartconsulting.com

Good luck and welcome to the City of Lights.

and I am posting my reply to help others who might log on:

searching for young, vibrant and multi ethnic area?

I think you would like the following neighbourhoods, (listed in number arrond.)

2/3/9/10/11/12/17/18/19/20

I would choose 11/12/19/20 for price, fun, great markets, bars and restaurants. You willl get a bigger home too.

I have left out the snobby, expensive and overpriced areas, e.g. 4th, the heart of the Marais and the Latin Quarter 5/6 & include 7 too in that. For instance cafes will eat into even a Saudi Princesse's budget, the supermarkets are crap and very over-priced.

IN Paris Now blog. – also my blog has a lot of neighbourhood info

i have to agree with ivyparis on this one. if you want a fun, "cheap" place you have to go for the east of paris. multicultural, a lot of life, a lot of intersting concerts,...
