The large 16th arrondissement is considered one of the most desirable residential areas of Paris. It’s also one of the most expensive areas of the city and bears comparison with exclusive neighbourhoods like Kensington and Chelsea in London or New York’s Upper East Side: there are wide, tree-lined avenues, grand buildings, good schools, lovely parks and an incredible selection of museums. Apart from the elegant apartment buildings, there are also exclusive houses with their own gardens. The cultural standouts include the Palais de Tokyo; the Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation; and the Palais de Chaillot. The western part of the 16th is entirely taken up by the Bois de Boulogne, which is deservedly popular with cyclists, joggers and dog-owners.
