What is the Batignolles area like?

Jump to last reply

We are looking at renting an apartment for a month on r Truffaut in the Batignolles area but, never having spent time in that area, are curious about what it is like. How useful are the nearby metro lines for getting around? What is the character of the neighborhood? Will we find cafes, boulangeries, restaurants, etc. nearby? Does anything recommend for or against locating there? We have previously rented in the Marais, on r Buffon just east of the Jardin des Plantes, and near Place d'Italie; We also stayed long ago in an hotel just south of Place de Clichy and do not recall ythat area fondly. We are avid walkers and are comfortable using the Metro/bus/RER system. We would prefer to experience a different "home" area in Paris, but also want to be close (in travel time) to Bastille, St. Germain, Gares, etc. areas. Any advice would be most welcome.
