Passy in Paris: Why You Should Live Here

September 28, 2020
Living in Paris is a dream only a few in the world can actually realize. Sure, there are a lot of people living in the French capital now, but when compared to the whole planet, they're practically only a handful. And as beautiful as Paris is overall, not all residents in the city are living the kind of life you usually see in movies or TV. At least, there are those who get to live in the 'City of Lights' in peace, able to relax and amidst such a bustling metropolis. More often than not, they're the ones living in the peaceful neighborhood of Passy.

The Suburbs of Paris

Very rarely do you see the words 'suburbs' and Paris in the same sentence, right? The French capital is such a complex cosmopolitan that it's hard to imagine it being a quiet neighborhood similar to where you grew up in. But in reality, Parisian districts are extremely different from each other and Passy is no exception. This district is a quiet and unassuming area that's fairly far from the hustles and bustles of the more urban parts of the city. Not necessarily silent—there's no such place in a city like Paris!—but peaceful enough to make it a solid home for the residents.

One of the More Upscale Neighborhoods

If there's one area in the whole world which you can compare Passy to, it's New York's Upper-East Side. Both largely residential areas, they're defined by their upscale atmosphere and swanky aura. The type you'd expect "old money" families have lived in for centuries. The type where students from international private schools would live in. And the type where you'd expect the most luxurious apartments Paris could offer. There's no end to the high-class offerings here, from designer shopping to five-star restaurants and more! If you're able to rent or buy a home here, it means you're in the big leagues!

Perfect Area for Families

As already mentioned, the Passy neighborhood is relatively known as the "suburbs of Paris." And because of this, you can expect a perfectly normal lifestyle for you and your family if you decide to live here. The peace within this community is unlike any other in this busy French capital, so much so that it almost seems like you're in a different city altogether when you're here. Furthermore, the district knows that it's perfect for families so you can expect many apartments that are safe for children here. So safe that you won't need to worry when they play outside!

No Trouble Traveling Around

What's frustrating about living in some neighborhoods in Paris is that it's difficult to travel around. As efficient as the city's public transport is, it can't be helped that some area aren't as accessible as other. But at least, that's not the case for Passy. It has many main streets—Rue de Passy, Avenue Victor Hugo, and Avenue de Versailles, among many others—so you can expect a lot of taxis to be cruising about looking for paying passengers. As for the metro, the Avenue du Président Kennedy or Boulainvilliers stations are stops of various lines you could take. Going to school, work, and other places would be a breeze!

Many Gardens and Parks Here

The Passy park along Avenue de Avenue du Président Kennedy, the Jardin du Ranelagh on Avenue Prudhon, and, of course, the famous Trocadéro Gardens! These are just some of the amazing parks in the Passy district. The sort of places you could retreat to in order to take a breather. Give yourself a break from all the problems you face in the city and just recharge in these oases of botanical bliss. And some, particularly the Trocadéro Gardens, will even give you a spectacular view coveted by world-travelers all over. The only difference is you get to see it whenever you want to!

Great Shopping Guaranteed

Because Passy is such an upscale district, you can expect the shopping here to be spectacular. And it is! From high fashion French designers to affordable high-street stores, the shopping here fits any style and any budget. If you're the type that worships style, get your Parisian staples in any of the boutiques, malls, and shopping districts here. A particular highlight? Passy Plaza! It's a shopping institution like no other in this part of the city, full of big-name shops and emerging brands alike. All offering up some of the best fashion pieces money could buy. You'll never go out of style if you live here!

You Won't Go Hungry Here

Well, you're in Paris! You practically won't go hungry at all in this foodie capital. But Passy is particularly underrated when it comes to this. Very often, other neighborhoods such as the Champs Elysées or the Latin Quarter gets mentioned about noteworthy culinary hotspots in Paris. Passy still has its own fair share, ready to feed the residents with the finest cuisines money can buy! Le Vin Dans les Voiles is a highlight! A wine bar that lets you sip the best reds with the most sumptuous seasonal dishes on offer. While Noura Pavillon, on the other hand, serves Middle-Eastern delicacies like no other in Paris!
