French real estate advertisement what does en etage eleve mean?


In a French real estate advertisement you may be wondering what does en étage élevé mean?

Typically this is a French real estate phrase you will see in an advertisement for a French apartment. The word ‘étage’ means ‘floor’ and the word ‘élevé’ similar to the word ‘elevated’ in English means ‘higher’. So what is being said is that the apartment is on a higher floor.

Of course, it would be much easier to state ‘the apartment is on the 3rd floor or the 5th floor. But the idea here is if you do not know what floor it is on you will call the agent or owner to find out which floor it is on.
