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.

the village is essentialy a few narrow streets and courtyards with a silent and intimate feeling and unique shops. it's like on outdoor museum really, very close to the marais and place de vosjes which you should include in your day trip.

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

We stayed on Ile de la Cite, so we were literally a five minute walk from Village St-Paul. There are many antique shops in the labyrinth of small walk ways. There was a Brocante on Sat. and Sunday when we were there, which has some lovely things. Continue through the village to Place de Vosges, a lovely open area surrounded... More

If you like shopping for antiques, this place is very nice. I went with my husband as we both love to look around for old stuff. We went on a Sunday, so more of half the stores were closed. That is why I do not give a full 5 rate. However we found the store Cassiopeia. They sell lots of... More

...(which I highly recommend)...then stroll around the Place des Vosges, grab lunch at one of the brasseries under the arcades there, and then wander towards the river and Notre Dame via the Village St.Paul...you'll be waylaid be a profusion of chi-chi shops and odd little 'finds'...never mind; the river'll still be there tomorrow.
