The Best Reasons to Live in Ternes in Paris

October 01, 2020
When it comes to the corners of Paris, the northwestern 17th arrondissement is a place worth looking into. It's here where you can really see the soul of Paris, which makes it the beautiful city visited and marveled at by millions of people around the world. Sure, other parts of the French capital boast world-famous landmarks, glamorous luxury, and exciting eateries, but in this arrondissement, especially the Ternes neighborhood, there's a spirit that you can't find anywhere else. One that most people don't get to see outside of the city. Who knows, this place might be your next hometown?

A Truly Residential Part of Paris

Very few neighborhoods in Paris where you could say it's 100% residential. More often than not, the city's many districts are more urban in nature, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but not exactly suitable for all people to live in. But Ternes is another story entirely. The quiet neighborhood made up of luxury long-term rental apartments and old-school houses alike provide the perfect peaceful space for kids to grow up in and for senior citizens to retire to. Add to that the families who've lived here for generations, some even running their own businesses that add to the Parisian charm of the place.

One of the More Quiet Parisian Areas

Speaking of a quiet space, such a place is practically a rarity in a city like Paris. A major global capital, the "City of Lights" is named as such because it remains busy throughout the day. So for those looking to live out a quiet life in Paris, Ternes is your neighborhood. This doesn't mean it's not exciting here, far from it! However, the nightlife scene and the like are situated in select parts of the district only. It's not as spread as say, those in Montmartre or the Marais district. Either way, going home here after a busy day at work will feel like heaven!

A Bustling Local Lifestyle

Despite the relatively peaceful atmosphere here, Ternes is a district that will help you see what local life really is like in Paris. Many people seem to think that living in the French capital is all about glamour and luxury. In many parts, it is, but for the majority of residents who live humble and simple lives here, it's a totally different story. In a place like Ternes, the local life consists of brunch in a café, a walk to a local flea market on weekends, shopping for antiques & other knick-knacks for fun, and the like. This is what you should expect your life will be when you live here.

Quirky Shoppers' Paradise

In terms of shopping in Ternes, if you're one to go for character instead of glamour, the places here are perfect for you! Leave the expensive shopping to the upscale malls or luxury outlet stores in other districts, here in Ternes, it's all about the beautiful bargains and the vintage finds! Le Bazaristain, for instance, on Rue Saint Ferdinand, is a concept store that sells items you won't see anywhere else. It's the perfect place to shop for a gift for a person with your exact taste! Depot Vente, on the other hand, is all about discount designer clothing with your favorite Parisian labels: Chanel, Hermès, and many more!

Food for Days

A great thing about living in Ternes is getting food doesn't have to be expensive. While living costs in Paris are generally high, food doesn't have to be one of them. In this district, there are countless markets, both grocery stores & flea markets, where you can shop until you can fill your entire fridge and pantry and still be able to save some money. The market on Rue Poncelet is a great example. From chicken rotisserie to flower to freshen up your place, you can find everything here at low prices! And don't forget the many fromageries as well, for your daily dose of cheese!

A Lively Restaurant Scene

Though if you're not that much of a chef and you prefer eating out, Ternes has you covered as well. Remember, this neighborhood is still in Paris, no matter how the silence here might convince you otherwise. Expect that even the establishments in this district are truly top-notch, nothing less for the food capital of the world. A noteworthy place is Le Trois-Quart, a quintessential Parisian bistro that serves seasonal dishes. But if you're craving for pizza, pop on over to Ricci's instead! Their truffle-topped dishes are worth every penny you pay! But if you still want to be in the thick of local life here, head on over to the always busy bistro of L'Entredgeu instead!
