Tourism & HOBBIES


Located on the right bank of the Seine River north-east of Paris, the 17th arrondissement is one of the largest in the capital. It includes 4 main districts.

The districts of Ternes and Plaine Monceau ( where Hotel AVAMA Prony is located), bourgeois with their magnificent Haussmanian buildings and their large and wide avenues such as those of Courcelles, Ternes or Villiers.

The Batignolles district, taken by young housewives and active people, which is full of restaurants and branch bars. And the more popular Spruce. This diversity gives the 17th a very high contrast rating. It includes green spaces such as the charming Batignolles Square and Martin Luther King Park in the northeast.

The magnificent Parc Monceau located at its southern edge, boulevard de Courcelles

Marechal-Juin Square, better known as "Pereire" Square, is the nerve centre of the Plaine Monceau district.

It is a wooded and abundant place at rush hour where those who go to their workplace mix as well as tourists strolling in the many cafes and restaurants sunny from the first rays. We would highly recommend that you stop there at any time of the day for a quick breakfast, lunch or a more hearty dinner. 

You will also find many transport options such as metro, bus or RER C with Pereire station.


Parc Monceau, at the end of rue de Prony after the crossing with avenue de courcelles, is one of the most beautiful public parks in Paris.

Surrounded for the most part by magnificent Haussmanian style private mansions formerly owned by prestigious families such as the Pereire family or Rothschild, it covers 8.2 hectares.

Inaugurated in 1861, it is very popular with the inhabitants of the district, with its sculptures, columns, caves, water features and other kindergartens.

Notice to joggers, the park tour measures precisely 1000 m without bypassing the children's playground, which is a very good way to get around!

In the northeast of the borough towards the Cardinet Bridge, there are two streets more or less one after the other very taken by the inhabitants of the neighbourhood: de Toqueville Street and de Levis Street.

Full of shops, bistros (especially with the adjacent rue Legendre) or steps such as the one on rue de Levis on weekends, they give the district a very apreciated village spirit.
