Neuilly-sur-Seine, green oasis in western Paris, is the most pleasant city of Hauts-de-Seine, according to our list of cities where life is good in Ile-de-France. A city where security and tranquility are erected as a priority. But not only. The inhabitants also appreciate this real green lung along the Seine.
Land of privileged, fief of nabobs, opulent city where people rub shoulders with politicians. In Neuilly-sur-Seine more than elsewhere, clichés have a hard life. A closer look though, the city of Hauts-de-Seine is not just a bling-bling agglomeration where safety and tranquility are erected priority. It also offers a completely different face. That of a real green lung on the banks of the Seine.

The top 20 departmental

The numbers speak for themselves: 13,000 trees and nearly 40 ha of parks and gardens. In all the western Paris, few cities offer such an oasis of greenery to their citizens. When it comes to treading a lawn or reading in the shade of a hundred-year-old elm, families in search of calm are spoiled for choice. From the highly prized Bagatelle Park to the wooded banks of the island of Jatte through the most confidential park of Folie Saint-James. Unknown to tourists, this Anglo-Chinese garden of the thirteenth century covers 1.8 ha, close to the busy Avenue General de Gaulle. Classified as a historic monument in 1922, it is very popular with the family of Neuilly.

“This park is my breath of fresh air”

Sarah, 44, is one of the local faithful. The Folie Saint-James, the dynamic mother of the family said to have taken her habits from her move, 12 years ago, in an apartment on the rue Labordière. “This park is my breath of fresh air,” she says. I come here every morning or so to get my mind wet while my old dog gets his legs up. “It is indeed a very pleasant place, confirms Alain, 68 years old, who confesses however to have a weakness for the park of Bagatelle and its splendid rose garden. “Even when you know it by heart, it’s always nice to walk around …”

But in Neuilly, one also vibrates for the alignments of plane trees which punctuate the main axes of the city. Like Jean Dupasquier, a dapper retiree who struggles to save the trees for a time threatened by the redevelopment project of Boulevard Bineau, piloted by the Department. “These are the alignments that give its charm to the streets of Neuilly, insists the pensioner. They constitute an element of the cultural heritage of the city. It is these trees, this environment that convinced me to settle here. “

A redevelopment project for N 13

An environment that the Mayor (DVD) of Neuilly, Jean-Christophe Fromantin, intends to improve by transforming the approaches to the N 13 that many consider a true highway. “The city has launched the project of redevelopment of the aisles on Avenue Charles-de-Gaulle, says the elected. These facilities will allow to find the great walks that will further improve the living environment and enhance the attractiveness of Neuilly.
The surprise: in Malakoff, social mix, it works

A “social mix success”. When we ask the inhabitants of Malakoff about their environment, the answer comes up every time. With 40% of social housing, the communist city is an exception in the ranking of municipalities where life is good in the Hauts-de-Seine.
She is ahead of Puteaux, Ville-d’Avray or even Fontenay-aux-Roses. “I moved to Montrouge for a while but it was not the same. Here, the mix is ​​real. I felt compelled to come back, “observes a resident. The mayor, Jacqueline Belhomme, confirms: “No one is parked in Malakoff. People live together … There are no ghettos. “
The social housing towers are very close to the suburban areas. “The children all go to the same schools and everything goes well,” says Stéphane, Malakoffiot for four generations. “Although there are 4,400 social housing units, the city is not classified as a priority education zone. This shows that it works, “says Jacqueline Belhomme. “
It feels like living in a village. It feels good, “adds another inhabitant. A village for the least animated. In all, a hundred public facilities – including four gymnasiums, two stadiums and a nautical center -, two health centers and a market open three days a week punctuate the life of the town. “For 30,000 people, it’s huge! Calculates, proudly, Jacqueline Belhomme. And Stéphane to outbid: “We even wonder why we are not ranked first! “
