Known for its idyllic market streets, antique shops and artistic village feel, Auteuil in Paris' swanky 16th arrondissement may not be your first choice for a stay in The City Of Lights, but it's a peaceful corner of the city with plenty to offer. Whether you're enjoying a picnic in Bois de Boulogne, strolling along the Seine or grabbing a bite at the classic French eateries, this neighbourhood is a serene and historic pocket perfect for those wanting a quieter stay filled with that quintessential Parisian charm. And this modern apartment is in the heart of it all, just a two-minute walk from Jasmin metro station and thirty from the Eiffel Tower. Although the interior leans towards contemporary, there's still character to be found – from the black-and-walk palm frond wallpaper down to the parquet floors. It's easy to feel at home here – settle down on the velvet sofa with a glass of wine and Netflix, whip up a meal in the glossy kitchen or rinse off after a long day in the marble rainfall shower. While the bedrooms are a little tight, there's so much to keep you busy, you'll be drifting off to dreamland in no time at all.
