About the District
Paris’ 16th arrondissement is dubbed Paris’ bourgeois district because of its wide, tree-lined streets and often famous avenues, grand private homes and the extensive Bois de Boulogne.
Despite its western location nestled between the Seine and Paris ring road, it benefits from excellent transport links to the rest of the city thanks to 5 metro and 2 RER lines running through 23 stations. It is composed of 4 neighbourhoods: the southernmost, Auteuil, is the district’s sports centre with Roland Garros stadium, the Parc des Princes and Molitor Spa; above it, la Muette is home to Marmottan Monet museum and Passy cemetery (and its famous residents), as well as to a part of the Trocadéro; on the northern west side is la Porte Dauphine where many embassies and luxurious hôtels particuliers are, as well as famous avenue Foch; on the northern east side is the fourth and best-known 16e area, quartier Chaillot. It is home to the Arc de Triomphe, Palais de Tokyo and Avenues Kléber and Victor Hugo.
This is also where Apple and Pernod Ricard have located their offices, which makes it a convenient location for corporate housing in 16e, even though 16eme apartments for rent can be hard to find due to the district’s premium location and amenities.
