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.
