Top 20 Auteuil - Passy, Paris vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Nestled in the South part of the very smart 16th arrondissement, Auteuil used to be a village outside of Paris proper. It's a very residential area - your neighbours will mainly be affluent Parisians who have been living here for generations as well as lots of young families, attracted by the pretty, safe and quiet feel of the place. This is definitely not the part of town to let your hair down in. The streets are filled with large private villas, including the grand and well-known Villa Montmorency. It's a charming part of town with an authentic village feel that has somehow survived its becoming part of the city: it has its own little church, market and cemetery and it's got cultural clout too. It was Proust's birthplace, no less, and was also a place of peaceful retreat for plenty of artists back in the day.
