The buildings are modest and the streets are only really livened up by residents passing through. Nestled between the Seine and the Bois de Boulogne, the area surrounding Rue Jasmin is often overlooked. Luxury houses stand alongside more modest constructions. Nevertheless, the 16th arrondissement as a whole still has a reputation as a bourgeois district. Auteuil was once a simple village before being taken over by the city. It is worth noting that the district is considered to be the greenest in the capital. Some would say that this part of Paris has kept its village feel.
