The area of le Batignolles offers a fashionable inner-Paris enclave. A true proponent of cafe society, Batignolles is responsible for a class of residents known as “bobos,” or, bourgeois bohemians. The neighborhood’s penchant for open air markets, resplendent gardens, and cultivated class lends Batignolles a graceful intimacy that attracts visitors to this village in the center of Paris.
Historically, during the 19th century, the area of the Batignolles had an active cultural life, and it served as a base for the painters, Édouard Manet, Camille Pissarro, Auguste Renoir, and Edgar Degas who lived and socialized here. They actually became known as the 'groupe des Batignolles'. The poet Paul Verlaine spent his youth in the Batignolles, as did the French composer and singer Barbara who resided in the area. Last but not least, the Belgian singer Jacques Brel, a resident of the Batignolles wrote his hit 'Ne me quitte pas' here.
Today, the area is newly fashionable yet offers a quiet village like feel. It is extremely dynamic as far as ecology and arts go. Between the rue de Legendre and the rue des Batignolles there are more than fifteen galleries and workshops. There is a covered food market a block away on rue Lemercier. The Saturday organic food market where Oscar winning actress Marion Cotillard is frequently seen shopping is three blocks away. Down the street is the Square des Batignolles, an English-style garden with gentle hills, a grotto, a river, a waterfall, and even a miniature lake. Here you can also find the locals playing boules. Nearby there are great restaurants, shops and there are metro and bus stops just around the corner. Lastly, the avenue des Champs-Élysées and the avenue de l'Opéra are each but a 20 minute walk.
