Where to stay in Paris? - calm and cultured Batignolles might suit you.
Parc Monceau, rue de Levis, rue des Dames, Square des Batignolles
Parisians and tourists alike are discovering Batignolles Cafe Society as foodies delight in the market stores of rue de Levis and restaurants like Le Bistrot des Dames on rue des Dames. Amongst the traditional bourgeois classes of this cultivated neighbourhood the numbers of recently installed bohemian types are growing and contributing to and expanding the appeal of the area’s attractions.
Residents of the 17th love the fact that they live within the walls or periphique of Paris but are still a comfortable distance from its commercial core. They love the fact that their Square des Batignolles traverses railway tracks and they have a not very well kept secret – though not their own, Batignolles residents are not shy about venturing into the nearby 8th to stroll the manicured paths and lawns of Parc Monceau.
