Why is the Batignolles district often compared to a small provincial village ?
Start your day at the markets: the Batignolles covered market and the open-air organic market on Saturdays, which will delight lovers of fresh products.
Then, take a coffee-lunch break on the Place du Dr Félix Lobligeois: a large fountain, surrounded by café terraces under the tilleurs, a bakery that embalms the neighbourhood, an ice-cream seller, and a small church Sainte-Marie des Batignolles!
Take a walk at the Square des Batignolles, and take your bowl of green and pure air!
At the end of the afternoon, stroll along all the small shopping streets, full of trendy boutiques, independent shops, decoration boutiques, children's shops: you'll find everything you need!
Finish your day in a bar/restaurant/café: one watchword is conviviality! Settle down on the terrace around a board or taste the bistronomic dishes of the many local establishments.
Want to get out of the 17th arrondissement?
Meeting point in Parc Monceau, in the 8th arrondissement: 15 minutes walk from the hotel! Built in the 17th century, it is now one of the most elegant gardens in Paris. Let yourself be surprised by this beautiful walk, punctuated by numerous statues, a Renaissance arcade of the former Paris City Hall, spectacular trees, a great variety of birds and a large pool.
If you like to walk through the streets of the Capital, you can reach the Champs Elysées in 20 minutes, via Avenue Wagram.
Finally, you will quickly reach Montmartre by metro, located in the 18th arrondissement, right next door!
