The Monceau neighbourhood
On the border between the eighth and seventeenth arrondissement, the Parc Monceau lends its name to the neighbourhood, which occupies much of the area. This oasis of greenery was once the hunting ground of kings, before being transformed into a village and annexed to Paris in the nineteenth century. Monceau occupies a special corner of the capital's heart and enjoys a separate status. Its streets are impregnated with the perfume of yesteryear; its park is filled with statues, temples and pagodas. Art museums add the finishing touch to make the area perfect for all lovers of history, art and nature.
Lodgis have selected the best apartments in the Parc Monceau district of Paris. These apartments have all been visited and checked by our staff to make sure that your stay in Paris runs smoothly and without any complications.
Discover Paris through the Monceau neighbourhood
Encompassing more than eight hectares, the Parc Monceau is completely enchanting. It is a former ducal property that alone completely justifies choosing this area for your short break or holiday in Paris. There is so much to see; the Swiss farm, the temple, lakes and winding pathways, that are punctuated here and there with statues representing the painters and writers who have frequented and loved the area over the centuries. The park lends itself to many beautiful walks, and is also ideal for rests and meditation.
The Monceau district is also a great place to stay if you are interested in discovering some of the capital's most interesting art museum. You could use your stay in the Plaine Monceau to visit the Museum of Jean-Jacques Henner, which displays most of the portraits and landscapes of the artist, or the ancient Chinese collections of the Cernuschi Museum. At the edge of the expansive park, the Nissim de Camondo museum is a mansion whose style is reminiscent of the Petit Trianon, and whose vast panelled rooms highlight the pieces of furniture and decorative art of the eighteenth century. Finally, in the Jacquemart-André Museum, you can admire, as well as some temporary exhibitions, works by Chardin, Fragonard and Rembrandt, to name but a few. On leaving the museum, you could continue your exploration of this unique Parisian neighbourhood by making a detour to the Greco-Russian cathedral of St. Alexander Nevsky. This fine example of the Russian-Byzantine style would be a fitting way to end your tour of Plaine Monceau; but the whole quarter is like a jewel waiting to be discovered, so far from Parisian hustle and bustle.
The Monceau neighbourhood has so many activities and charming features. With the help of Lodgis, you will have the opportunity to discover Paris in another way when you stay in the best apartments in the quarter.
We also have other apartments in other districts of the 8th arrondissement, such as Madeleine - St Lazare and Champs Elysees. Please do not hesitate to have a quick look at them!
