The Rue Boileau is a street in the neighborhood Auteuil of the 16th arrondissement of Paris .
The street starts at number 31 on rue d'Auteuil and ends at number 188 on avenue de Versailles .
It was named after the French writer Nicolas Boileau (1636–1711), who was long unreservedly counted among the great French classics and who lived from 1685 to 1709 under today's number 26.
This path of the former municipality of Auteuil is called "Rue des Garennes" in the 17th century after the Lieu-dit that existed in the 15th century. It can also be found on the Plan de Roussel from 1730.
It was originally located at the intersection of the streets Molière and Grande-Rue, which merged into today's Rue d'Auteuil . It led to the court of the Lords of Auteuil, which was near what is now the Place de la Porte-de-Saint-Cloud .
Nicolas Boileau bought a house in this rue des Garennes on August 10, 1685 for 8,000 livres . It consists of “a corps de logis appliqué à deux étages, outre le rez-de-chaussée, une cour, une écurie et remise de carrosse et un jardin clos de murs”.
