This family-friendly arrondissement has a good share of lovely, prestigious apartment buildings, a bit more affordable than similar properties in the neighboring 16th and 8th arrondissements.
The neighborhood bordering the beautiful Parc Monceau, with its wide streets and prestigious dressed stone buildings, is some of the more sought after real estate for high-income buyers. The area near the Arc de Triomphe is also popular for its large, prestigious apartments, but is more known as the right address for international corporations and law firms. The Rue des Dames is one of the charming gems of the 17th, home to a wealth of quaint, neighborhood restaurants. The area around metro Rome is also trending upward as well, attracting a new crop of young residents looking for a foothold in Paris real estate; it remains virtually unknown to non-French buyers. The areas to the north, near the 18th and the congested Place de Clichy tend to be the least desirable.
Located on the right bank of the River Seine, the 17th arrondissement also hosts a large exhibition center, the Palais des Congrès of Paris.
Always a family-oriented area, the 17th attracts first-time buyers near Batignolles and Epinettes, with higher income buyers focusing on the pricey, village-like neighborhood around the Place Saint Ferdinand, the Parc Monceau and the rue de Prony. At the other end of the spectrum is the area to the North, around La Fourche, where property can be had for bargain basement prices. The area around Ternes and Arc de Triomphe is popular with foreign buyers because of the central location and ease of transport.

Musée Jean Jacques Henner: Dedicated to the now forgotten painter of languid red headed nudes; with its winter gardens and arabesque charm this museum is a tranquil place to visit. http://www.musee-henner.fr
Marché Poncelet: Better and more authentic than rue Cler, forget what the guidebooks tell you, this is the market you come to when you actually want to cook, you’ll also find the best cheese shops L’Alléosse, here.
PARKS & GARDENS
Square de Batignolles: Tucked away in the middle of the Batignolles neighborhood this adorable square has a duck pond fed by a stream, lots of flower beds and, curiously, several empty pedestals – some of the few remaining reminders of bronze statues melted for ammunition during the Nazi occupation. A great park for kids, with its vintage carrousel, large playgrounds and roller skating area.
