Neuilly-sur-Seine

Neuilly can be divided into 6 neighbourhoods, each with its specific particularities:
Enclosed between the Seine and the Bois de Boulogne, the Saint James neighbourhood is one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Neuilly-sur-Seine. Around Folie Saint James Park, magnificent properties enjoy beautiful views and notably of the Saint James Folly, a listed monument.

Ile de la Jatte island is home to many wealthy Parisians and well-known celebrities. It is renowned for having inspired numerous Impressionist artists, among them Seurat, Monet and Van Gogh. The island boasts the best in luxury real estate in western Paris: unique private mansions, prestigious high-floor triplex apartments, and houses with gardens overlooking the banks of the Seine.
The Neuilly-Bois neighbourhood is also among Neuilly’s sur Seine most desirable neighbourhoods.  Bordered by the Bois de Boulogne, Avenue Charles de Gaulle and Avenue de Madrid, its major attraction is its proximity to the Bois de Boulogne, 846 hectares of leafy greenery and the capital’s green lung.  Many properties benefit from magnificent unobstructed views. Also, the neighbourhood is just a short distance from Porte Maillot and the capital.

The Pasteur neighbourhood is so called due to its renowned schools and prestigious private street which bear the name of the renowned scientist best known for his groundbreaking work in the field of vaccination. To the north east of Neuilly-sur-Seine, this neighbourhood is framed by rue Perronet, rue de Chezy, Levallois Perret and Paris.

Levallois-Perret

With over 27 000 inhabitants / km2, Levallois-Perret is characterized by its high density of population.
Criss-crossed by narrow streets, many of which are one-way, circulation can be problematic in contrast with neighbouring municipalities such as Neuilly-sur-Seine which benefits from wide wooded avenues. In Neuilly many buildings are set back from the street, whereas here they tend to line the streets.

Since the early 1980’s, Levallois-Perret has undergone extensive development. Many old buildings have been razed to the ground to make way for new more efficient constructions. The old industrial buildings on the banks of the Seine near Quai Michelet have been replaced by a more contemporary architecture, creating the Quartier de l'Europe neighbourhood around the new Place Georges-Pompidou.

This urban renewal has given Levallois-Perret a homogenous style, essentially with large apartment blocks and very few private houses. Young, modern and very dynamic, Levallois benefits from an excellent transport network.

This development has led to the price per square metre increasing significantly more than the regional average and Levallois could well become one of the most expensive of the capital’s suburbs.

Boulogne-Billancourt

Boulogne-Billancourt is made up of 6 neighbourhoods:

1) Parchamp-Albert Khan:  a “family” neighbourhood, with fine Haussmannian buildings and luxurious more recent constructions making it one of the most sought after in Boulogne. Albert Kahn Gardens and Rothschild Park offer leafy greenery, and the neighbourhood also boasts the Paul Belmondo Museum.

2) Silly-Gallieni: located north of Avenue du General Leclerc, this peaceful residential neighbourhood has preserved much of its early 20th century architecture, and attracts high-income young executives. Leafy Farman Garden, the Mail du Maréchal Juin and the banks of the Seine offer greenery and a breath of fresh air...

3) Billancourt-Rives de Seine: located south of avenue of General Leclerc, this neighbourhood was the last to undergo modernisation, and today boasts the sought-after Rives de Seine development. Seguin Island, once a rather dingy setting for the Renault assembly line, is today a model for sustainable development.

4) Point du Jour/ Republic: close to Paris, this former working-class area today boasts numerous corporate headquarters, making it very lively during the day but significantly more peaceful at night. Paris Saint Germain’s home ground, the Parc des Princes, is here.

5) The town centre: around Place Marcel-Sembat is not only the geographical centre but also the hub for the town’s activity. With shops, leisure activities and sports facilities, this is among Boulogne’s most sought-after neighbourhoods. The Town Hall, the Hotel des Postes and the 1930’s Museum are grouped together here.

6) Princes-Marmottan: on the edge of the woods, this neighbourhood is the most residential and the most keenly sought after in Boulogne; private mansions and villas rub shoulders with luxurious buildings and Roland-Garros, home to the French Open, is never far away.

THE YVELINES

The Yvelines department is one of the eight that make up the Île-de-France region. Created like the others in the “grande couronne” on January 1st, 1968, it is the largest of the “new” departments that resulted from the breaking up of the old Seine-et-Oise department. Known as the Yvelinois, its inhabitants today count 1.4 million, and the population density at 627 inhabitants/km2 is considerably higher than the national average (117 inhabitants/km2), yet significantly lower than the regional level (over 1 000 inhabitants/km2)
Located just 16 kilometres from Paris, its administrative centre Versailles which developed around its world-famous chateau was under the old Regime the capital of the kingdom of France.
It shares the title of "royal city" with five others:  Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Poissy (birthplace of Saint Louis), Mantes-la-Jolie, Marly-le-Roi and Rambouillet. Numerous chateaux, old royal residences and manor houses are open to the public, among them Versailles, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Rambouillet, Breteuil, Maisons-Laffitte and Thoiry...
Much of the Yvelines is rural with secondary residences accounting for only 1.8% of the total number of habitations.
For ramblers and hikers, the department since 1995 offers about 1,000 kilometres of marked trails.
In the Seine Valley, the cradle of Impressionism, reproductions of paintings are exposed in the precise location where they were painted both along the              "chemin des impressionnistes" which runs through Carrières-sur-Seine, Chatou, Croissy-sur-Seine, Bougival, Louveciennes, Marly-le-Roi, Port-Marly, Le Pecq and Noisy-le-Roi, and along the "parcours des impressionnistes" which runs through Mantes-la-Jolie, Saint-Martin-la-Roi Garenne, Vetheuil, Moisson-Lavacourt, Limetz-Villez, Bennecourt and Bonnieres-sur-Seine.


THE HAUTS DE SEINE

Previously the western part of the former Seine department and a little portion of the Seine-et-Oise department, the Hauts-de-Seine department was created on January 1st 1968.
The Hauts-de-Seine “Prefecture” in Nanterre is in a 113 metre high rise designed by architect André Wogenscky, a follower of Le Corbusier.
Urbanization took a huge leap forward in the first half of the nineteenth century with the development of the public rail transport network in 1837.
The department covers 176 km2 and its population is estimated at 1,600,000 inhabitants, making it the second French department in terms of population density with about 9,100 inhabitants per square kilometre. Paris excluded, it is not only the smallest department in the “couronne Parisienne” but also the smallest French department.
With the exception of some parks and woods, the Hauts-de-Seine department is almost exclusively urban.
Across the department the density of population is varied. There are basically four types of agglomeration:
- those furthest from Paris with a density of under 4,000 inhabitants/km2. These include Marnes-la-Coquette, Vaucresson, Ville-d'Avray, Gennevilliers and Saint-Cloud;
- high-density municipalities with between 4,000 and 12,000 inhabitants/km2, that is to say Meudon, Châtenay-Malabry, Nanterre, Rueil-Malmaison, Chaville, Sceaux, Clamart, Sèvres, Antony, Le Plessis-Robinson, Garches, Villeneuve-la-Garenne, Bagneux, Fontenay-aux-Roses, Chatillon, Bourg-la-Reine, Colombes and Suresnes
- those closer to Paris with a density comparable to the capital, that is to say between 12 and 15 000 inhabitants/km2. These are Issy-les-Moulineaux, Bois-Colombes, Puteaux and Malakoff.
- those with a significant economic activity and a density exceeding 15 000 inhabitants/km2,: La Garenne-Colombes, Asnieres, Clichy, Boulogne-Billancourt, Courbevoie, Montrouge, Levallois-Perret, Neuilly-sur-Seine and Vanves.
The department is crossed by a continuous 14 kilometre long cycle track, the Coulée verte.
