You will share my everyday life in the charming village-like section of Paris : Les Batignolles, in the 17th “arrondissement” (district) of Paris. Located between “Montmartre” and “Les Champs Elysées”, this “quartier” (neighborhood) is safe and perfect to visit Paris.
TRENDY AND SAFE
The Batignolles neighborhood has changed a lot since I moved in 25 years ago! It’s now very trendy, much
younger than before, full of restaurants, cafés, shops and boutiques. It’s a very safe neighborhood, because it’s residential, however, it’s not very well-known to tourists: so you’ll be surrounded by real Parisians. I promise you will experience daily life like true Parisians live it.
WALKING DISTANCE FROM PARKS
The square des Batignolles is two blocks away, and the peaceful Parc Monceau is also within walking distance.
FULL OF LOCAL DELICACIES
My neighborhood is like a small village, with lots of bakeries with fresh breads and beautiful pastries, traiteurs, groceries stores and small supermarkets; there’s also a farmer's market open six days a week with all the fresh food you can dream of.
HOP, SKIP & A JUMP FROM...
La Place de Clichy which is only a 10 minute walk away, and if you keep going, you will reach Pigalle, “Le Moulin Rouge” and “le chaud Paris”.
