The Batignolles neighborhood is rapidly gentrifying. It's charming and full of markets and good restaurants. There is a new town being developed along the train tracks with big parks and big housing developments plus the new courts. Come see how it turns out.

We stayed on the border of this neighbourhood and loved it. Lovely parks for picnics, shops and local restaurants. I would consider staying here.
