The Paris region is home to both very deprived and wealthy towns and suburbs. Here's a look at the ten richest towns in Île-de-France.

The newspaper Le Parisien has published a list of ten towns in the Ile-de-France region of France with the largest proportion of high-income residents.

The figures reveal that the majority of the richest communes in the Paris region are situated to the south-west of the capital.

Le Parisien calculated the proportion of households in each commune who earned over €100,000 in 2018.

While here were 880,000 households that fell into this category across the country, representing 2 percent of households nationwide, there were some 329,000 in the Île-de-France region alone, according to the report.

Three Parisian arrondissements were present in the top ten: the 7th, 8th and 16th. The largest proportion of high-earners is to be found in the small town of Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche in the Yvelines department, however.

In second place is Neuilly-sur-Seine, the setting for the 2009 comedy Neuilly sa mère !, about a teenager who moves from a housing estate to live with his aunt in an upscale neighbourhood.

Here is the full list, with the percentage of taxable households earning over 100,000 euros:

Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche = 27.4%

Neuilly-sur-Seine = 25.1%

Feucherolles = 23.9%

Fourqueux = 23.7%

Paris VIIe = 23.3%

L’Etang-la-Ville = 23%

Paris VIIIe = 22.8%

Le Vésinet = 22.6%

Mareil-Marly and Paris 16th = 20.9%
