The Princes-Marmottan: a posh neighbourhood

 

To the north-east of Boulogne-Billancourt, the Princes-Marmottan neighbourhood unfolds in a star shape around Place Denfert-Rochereau. This is where its streets start, extending north to Boulevard d’Auteuil and Roland-Garros, and west to Avenue Jean-Baptiste-Clément and Rue Fessart. To the east, the border with Paris is marked by the vast sports complex comprising the Parc des Princes, the Jean-Bouin stadium and the Géo-André-Stade Français sports hall. To the south, after following Route de la Reine, the Princes-Marmottan neighbourhood makes a small breakthrough through Rue Thiers in the city centre neighbourhood to Avenue Édouard-Vaillant.

History

The Princes-Marmottan neighbourhood was built in the Haussmann style and still preserves the bourgeois and top range architecture that has characterised it since its beginnings. Indeed, the bourgeoisie which regularly travelled between Auteuil and Versailles had made it a privileged holiday resort. It is now a fashionable neighbourhood that enjoys its proximity to the Bois de Boulogne, the Longchamp hippodrome and the Courts Roland-Garros.
