Lively by day and quiet by night, life in the neighborhood is similar to that of a village. There are few tourists and a lot of families. The residents wouldn't give up living there for the world! The name Plaisance probably comes from the presence of places for parties and pleasure located here in the 18th century. Built on the initiative of private speculators, small developments appeared in the first half of the 19th century. They still influence how the neighborhood looks with many low-rise buildings and small, verdant streets known as villas.
