I "inherited" a plant and was trying to identify it (to understand how to take care of it - plants usually have a hard time with me).

I belive this is a sentry palm (from photo matches gathered on Internet) but my leaves seem much more narrow than the ones on the pictures.

The plant is in France and is probably not a fancy one (in the sense that it should probably be available in Ikea or a general plant store).

I highly doubt that this is a sentry palm. It seems to be a golden cane palm, also known as areca palm or butterfly palm, Dyopsis lutescens.

Here is an image for comparison:

And here is a close up of the leaf:

This whole structure is just 1 leaf. What you called "leaves" in your question are actually just leaflets (or foliolum in Latin).
