We got checked in to our apartment on Rue Rambuteau in Le Marais near the Pompidou Centre and received some helpful instructions from Patrice, who managed our apartment. After a lunch from a boulangerie across the street... More

Village Saint Paul is probably much, much nicer in good weather, but in winter it was rather drab. Plenty of great antique shops, and the area is indeed quaint and picturesque. If you are interested in antiques, make this a priority. If not, then check it out if you're nearby but don't necessarily spend precious vacation time to get here... More

I have visited Paris at least a dozen times but had never been to Village St- Paul although I had seen the signs for it. I never knew what it was. It is a neat neighborhood with art galleries and antique shops. A great place to wander around. Some interesting buildings. Definitely worth a visit away from the hordes.

Another best kept secret in Paris. A world a way from the bustle of Rue Saint-Antoine & Rosiers, its a village within a village, with a network of courtyards cobbled alleys and medieval walls combine to give the effect of a country-style hamlet, right in the centre of the city. Filling these courtyards and streets are more than 200 antique... More

This market is like another world inside Saint-Paul, with it's small "streets" and shops. There are lots of them, the majority focused in antiques and arts, but the spirit of the place, with it's calmness, is the major attraction.

We stumbled on this after walking around la Marais and towards Notre Dame. Beautiful old streets with shops and cafés and then older feel of the city. Some stately homes and a few museums made for a very pleasant stroll.

If you're looking for antique shops, walk into the courtyards of Village St-Paul. There are several of them. If not into antiques, maybe stick your head into one of the courtyards for a quick view.

Hi guys, It is nice place but I suggest you to lower your expectations not as you imagine I prefer if you are tight on time to see other places first

I live nearby, and like to poke around Village St Paul while I'm in the neighborhood shopping for groceries. But if I were a tourist, I would have lots more important things to do with my time than to spend it here. Village St Paul has gotten written up a lot lately, and though the history of the buildings is... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
