La Muette - Cortambert

La Muette - Cortambert
Paris 16e

The parties and the stars have always sparkled in La Muette!


Although largely modelled by the hand of Baron Haussmann, whose love of straight lines is clear in the wide avenues and esplanades, the majestic buildings and the imposing townhouses, the district also contains a few architectural “anomalies”, such as the Hôtel Guimard and the Hôtel Mezzara designed by Hector Guimard in his signature Art Nouveau style. The original Café Prunier, on the corner of Rue Traktir, designed by architect Louis-Hippolyte Boileau, boasts a magnificent blue mosaic façade with large windows,

while the spectacular La Maison de la Radio, with its circular form, brings a touch of modernity echoed by a number of other buildings in the district.


Real estate here is lavish, whatever the architectural style. The houses and generously sized Haussmann apartments match the level of elegance of the district’s inhabitants, from all walks of life, diplomats, entrepreneurs and those working in finance, but all well off.

A tranquil district, renowned for its sophistication and family life, despite the tourist interest of its sites. And naturally one of the most prized districts of Paris.

Not to be missed

A remnant of time gone by, La Gare - La Muette train station in a former life - has retained all its pomp and splendour in the form of a brasserie where dining feels like a prelude to a departure on vacation!

The Musée Marmottant – Monet, born of Paul Marmottan’s passion for the Empire style, a style in which he entirely redecorated and furnished his townhouse on Avenue Raphaël. He also added the collections of his father, fascinated by the Middle Ages and Renaissance painters, and transformed the family home into a fabulous museum. Thanks to Monet’s younger son, who made the Musée Marmottan his sole legatee, the museum became an internationally renowned institution, housing the world’s largest number of the painter’s works and objects belonging to him.

A truly poetic interlude.

With the arrival of finer weather, the Maison de Balzac overlooking the hillsides of Passy from its landscaped garden and vineyard offers a striking view of Paris. And don’t forget to stop off at Rose Bakery in the grounds for those of you with a sweet tooth!


Address Book

From decoration ideas and Varenne’s interiors, to an array of cultural and culinary discoveries, our homes have never been such a window onto the world! 

Neighborhood Life

The Jardin du Ranelagh, the excellent schools (Saint-Jean-de-Passy, Franklin, Lycée Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague) and the spacious architecture primarily draw affluent families and foreigners (given the large numbers of diplomats in the area). These exacting families set the pace of life in the district, characterised by tranquillity and excellence.

Culture is also a big part of district life, led by the museums on the esplanade with their wide variety of exhibitions and performances.

The old Village de Passy, meanwhile, has both a bustling and provincial atmosphere, complete with top-notch food businesses (Passy covered markets, Grande Épicerie Rive Droite, Dragées Martial, and Boucherie Mozart) and gourmet restaurants, from the delicious Amourette bistro to the traditional La Causerie and HSP (Huitres et Saumons de Paris), a true culinary voyage, not to mention Yamakasi, supplier of exquisite Japanese delights, and Non Solo Cucina, one of the best Italian restaurants in Paris.

At the weekend, head to Chez Polo for a family Sunday brunch or the Terrasse du Brach before a stroll around the Jardin du Ranelagh with its Marionette Theatre to entertain the children.


A chic district offering the sort of peaceful family life you’d expect could only be found outside of the capital. And consequently highly sought-after, with real estate almost exclusively in the high-end segment, and always a sound investment.
