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.

We return again and again to Village St. Paul. On our first trip, we walked right past this charming labyrinthine courtyard of resale and brocante shops. When we returned to Paris a year later, it was one of our first destinations. We popped in and out of the shops on a Saturday, returning again a few days later. On subsequent... More

We had been to Paris many times before and stayed in different areas for different purposes. This time we wanted to walk to some museums, shop a little and wander round some memorable places. St Paul hit the spot. We stayed in a small independent hotel (Hotel du Septieme Arte) with a cinema theme which was fun. It was basic... More
