From bourgeois to boho, luxe shops to outdoor markets, bustling, cosmopolitan avenues to an old poet’s quarter, the 17th, a fascinating neighbourhood of contrasts, has a bit of this and a lot of that.
Want très chic-ness? The west end, around the fanciful Parc Monceau, is a bastion of affluence. Move on east and you enter the picturesque village neighbourhoods of Les Batignolles and Épinettes, birthplace of poets and artists. All worlds collide at the Marché Batignolles, an organic farmer’s market.
