Paris 17, chic and welcoming


There is a whole array of ambiances to be enjoyed in the chic and welcoming 17th arrondissement. The Haussmannian style is characteristic of the Plaine Monceau area, where the slate domes and rows of balconies only reinforce the splendour of a district that is home to plenty of elegant brasseries. The nearby Parc Monceau, with its colonnades and little bridge, offers a breath of fresh air in the form of the distinctly village-like Batignolles and its organic markets. Just a stone’s throw away, in the contrasting Épinettes district, meanwhile, beautiful residences line the Les Fleurs pedestrianised area. Stretching from the Étoile to Parc Martin Luther King, the 17th is a family-friendly arrondissement that has been shaped by both the history of the city and its modern nature.

The real estate market

The market has grown by 18% over five years and by 2% over the past year. The most popular neighbourhoods are Plaine-Monceau and Batignolles, while Villiers continues to appeal due to its accessibility and its local schools and markets. The average price is around €13,500 per sq.m.

Inside tip

If it’s a family nest you’re looking for, then Plaine-Monceau is the place for you. The hustle and bustle of the Batignolles will appeal to a younger, more bohemian clientèle, while the Épinettes district, adjacent to Place Clichy, is an excellent first investment. - Eric Morizot, Director of BARNES Courcelles
