Map of Vaugirard
The 15th Arrondissement runs from the banks of the Seine on the east to the Gare de Montparnasse on the west, nearly stretching up to the Champs de Mars and down to the southwestern limits of Paris.

Life in the Neighborhood
“Living in the 15th has its perks. Of course, it’s not the liveliest of all Parisian districts and it’s not the trendiest area full of hype bars and innovative concept stores either. But because of the somewhat secluded location, the area has attracted many new generation chefs who have settled their bistronomy restaurants here.
Le Troquet, Le Beurre Noisette, l’Ardoise du XV, and Le Quinzième (de Cyril Lignac) are just a few that can be found in the corners of its residential streets.
We love to go and discover these nouvelle cuisine jewels, proposing no-nonsense traditional dishes at a very reasonable price. To top it all off with a bit of fresh air, we often take walks through the green spaces of the Parc André Citroën, or along the rails of the former south Petite Ceinture train line which has been beautifully converted into a so-called promenade plantée.”
