Village Batignolles


Metro : Place de Clichy. 17th arrondissement.
In the eastern half of the 17ème arrondissement, rue des Batignolles is considered the center of the Village Batignolles, a quiet, old-fashioned village of shops and residences starting at Boulevard des Batignolles to the south and extending up to Place du Dr Felix Lobligeois. Just north of the place, the craggy waterfalls and duck-ponds of the Romantic park, square des Batignolles,  recall its more famous neighbor to the south, the English style Parc Monceau.  It was from the park's western end that Monet painted the train tracks running from the southern Gare St-Lazare. To the west, restaurants and cafés line rue des Dames, while shops stand on rue de Lévis. On the other side of rue des Batignolles, at rue Lemercier between rue Clairaut and rue des Moines, is a daily shopped here since WWII. La Cité des Fleurs, 59-61, rue de la Jonquière, at the intersection with rue des Epinettes, is a row of exquisite private homes and gardens that look like they were lifted out of a Balzac novel. Designed in 1847, this prototypical condominium required each owner to plant at least three trees in the gardens. The Cimetière des Batignolles, sandwiched between a noisy lycée and the car horns of the Periphérique, is surprisingly serene given its surroundings. Andre Breton, Paul Verlaine, and Benjamin Peret are buried here.
