Destination guide

The 17th arrondissement is well-kept secret

The 17th arrondissement is a secret. Beloved of well-to-do Parisians and bohemians and cafe goers, it might not have any major sights in the ilk of the Eiffel Tower and whatnot. But don't let that stop you. This is lively, lived-in France at its best. Cafes spill out onto the street corners and hawkers fill the lanes with stacks of oranges and seafood and French baguettes when the Marche Poncelet is in full flow. Jazz concerts erupt in boho cafes and little wine bars hide beneath the Haussmannian blocks. 17th arrondissement vacation rentals are your ticket to a local's Paris.

Things to do

Cathedrals and cabarets near the 17th arrondissement

There's not much in the way of must-see sights in the 17th arrondissement. For those, you'll need to stroll just a little to the south or east. A walk up the steep steps on the far side of Montmartre hill will take you to the grand domes of the Sacre Coeur. Wonder at the Romanesque and Byzantine flourishes of that great church before swiveling to see the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Down below is the risky Moulin Rouge, where the neon haze of red light hides the home of the can-can and French cabaret.

Activities

The 17th arrondissement is street life

The streets of this area are like a theater stage for Parisian life. You can just fling open the wide windows of your 17th arrondissement vacation rentals and watch as baguette-wielding cyclists whizz by or animated city dwellers chat over steaming mugs of mocha. There's even better people watching – and shopping – in the marketplaces. The Marche des Batignolles is known for organic produce and its tasty French veg stalls. The Marche Poncelet is even more famous, offering pungent blue cheeses and glazed croissants and more.

Weather

There's never a dull moment in the 17th arrondissement

Because this is one of Paris's local areas, it's always bustling with life and markets and people. You don't need to limit your trip to summer months like June, July and August to catch the place at its best – only for the best weather. In fact, a trip here in spring or fall could not only reveal a more authentic side to the cafes and jazz bars that abound, but also help save plenty of euros on account of cheaper 17th arrondissement vacation rentals.

Natural features

Park life in the 17th arrondissement

The 17th arrondissement is just another slice of the urban sprawl that is Paris. Encircled by the big ring roads that encase the capital, it's limited by highways to the north and the start of the 18th and 8th arrondissements on its other sides. There are some parks for those who want to get a taste of the city's more peaceful side. Head down to Parc Martin Luther King for wide fields and pretty flower beds. Or, go to Square des Batignolles for manicured English gardens, ponds and thought-provoking sculpture works.
