Beginning where the 17th arrondissement meets the Arc de Triomphe is the high-end residential neighbourhood of Ternes. It’s a quiet and pretty area that seems a long way from the bustle of the nearby Champs Elysées. There are some excellent restaurants around the traffic-clogged place des Ternes and a very popular market on rue Poncelet. There are also all the shops you could need and good connections to the rest of Paris. Families like the spacious and often rather grand apartments to be found here and the proximity to the pretty Parc Monceau.
