France is known for its history and culture. You can’t really live there unless you have an appreciation for these two things. If there’s anyone that cares about French culture, it’s the ultra wealthy. Billionaires in France live quite differently than billionaires from the rest of the world. Known as the food and shopping capital of the world, France seems to be the ideal playground for billionaires. From an array of luxury clothing brands to an endless amount of Michelin star restaurants, France is the ideal place to show off your wealth. Bernard Arnault is France’s richest billionaire and he’s catching up to Jeff Bezos to become the richest man in the world. But not all French billionaires are living a glamorous life. Francois Bettencourt Meyers is the opposite of her family. While she was raised in glitz and glam, she would much rather stay home and play piano or write a book. France used to have a wealth tax, which deterred a lot of French billionaires from calling the country their home. But since France abolished the tax, the rich are getting richer and bringing their money back to the country. The future generation of France’s billionaires are coming in from old money and basically filling in their parents’ shoes. Most are happy to do it because they get a fantastic quality of life out of it. Let’s take a look at what it’s like to be a billionaire in France!
