Even if the 7th arrondissement may be even more exclusive, the 16th arrondissement has the reputation of being the richest, and only the better-off are able to pay the high rents here. The arrondissement is bordered by the enormous Boulogne park to the west. A big draw is thePalais de Chaillot, from where you can have a great view of the Eiffel Tower. The Palais de Chaillot is also home to several museums and a theater. The Musée Guimet, a museum with a collection of Asian art and the Palais de Tokyo, home to modern art, can be found nearby. Another notable museum is the Musée Marmottan, with a collection of impressionist art.
This sweet and utterly Parisian apartment, centrally located in the 16th arrondissement, is a minute's walk from the Seine, and also from the Flame of the Statue of Liberty, a public sculpture ringing out luminosity in gold tones in the Place d'Alma, at one end of the Pont (bridge) d'Alma over the river. You furthermore need only to lift your eyes to see, blazing in an earthier kind of glory, the Eiffel Tower, which, every evening at sunset, becomes a marvel of light. This is iconic, elemental Paris, and as locations go, you could hardly pick a more central one from which to see it all.
Icons and public squares aside, there's the even more essential element of home about this place, which is located in a private brownstone and decorated in a charmingly personal and très français style. It's a perfect nest to return to after a long day of shopping, sightseeing, Métro riding, and connoitering in French. You'll enjoy bringing back your treasures and delicacies from the boutiques and markets, along with stories and memories to last until your next visit: the lovely evening promenade you took along the classical edge of the Louvre and the Bourse… the Grand Palais and Petit Palais… the American Cathedral… the Plaza Athenée Hotel. You'll feel washed in all the elements and sensory experiences of Paris. Surely it's enough to give you a new outlook, if not, (email hidden) on life.
