About Neuilly sur Seine
Neuilly-sur-Seine is a commune in the western suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 6.8 km from the centre of Paris. Although Neuilly is technically a suburb of Paris, it is immediately adjacent to the city and directly extends it. Originally, Neuilly was a small hamlet under the jurisdiction of Villiers, a larger settlement mentioned in medieval sources as early as 831 and now absorbed by the commune of Levallois-Perret. In 1316, however, in a ruling of the parlement of Paris, the name was recorded as Nully, a different name from those recorded before. One of the main sites in Neuilly is Château de Neuilly, an important royal residence during the July Monarchy. Its estate covered a vast 170 hectare park called "parc de Neuilly" which comprised all of Neuilly that is today to be found between avenue du Roule and the town of Levallois-Perret. The castle was built in 1751, and was largely destroyed in 1848. Neuilly is one of the richest areas of Paris. The centre of Paris is only 15 minutes away.
