Paris: mini guide to the 17th district

Paris’ 17th district, located in the north-west of the city, is both chic and cosmopolitan. These two opposing aspects lend the place a distinct charm and vibrancy, making it a great place to live on a daily basis.

Wagram-Ternes neighbourhood

The Wagram-Ternes neighbourhood, which extends beyond the Champs-Elysées, is the most affluent part of the 17th district.

A quiet setting

When you buy a flat in Wagram-Ternes, you can be sure you’re going to be living in a quiet neighbourhood. However, the area does also have a real community vibe, particularly around place des Ternes.

What kind of properties can you buy in Wagram-Ternes?

In the Wagram-Ternes neighbourhood, the spotlight is very much on Haussmann architecture. If you’re looking for a flat that can offer the “holy trinity” of high-end real estate i.e. fireplaces, mouldings and old parquet flooring, then you’re in the right place. Another significant advantage is that it is still possible to buy huge flats.

A genuine village feel

With its trendy bars and restaurants, Batignolles attracts a bohemian-middle class crowd who are constantly on the lookout for something new. You just need to have a stroll around Batignolles square or the market to appreciate the full charm of the place with its vibrant yet traditional feel. 

What kind of properties can you buy in Batignolles?

Whether it’s flats in plush, Haussmann buildings or top-floor, split-level loft-style apartments with terraces, there is something for all tastes in Batignolles.
