We have been traveling to Paris for years but had never been to this neighborhood of artists. We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon wandering around. Definitely worth a visit.

This was a 'must' after reading so much about this little hidden village of St Paul. There are some lovely parts of the area which is very historic but I suspect locals are a bit tired of tourists. The market area was a bit mixed with more junky stuff than I expected, it felt a bit touristy to us. The... More

Some friends told me that I needed to check out this "village" since they knew I liked antiques. I was very disappointed. It didn't look like any of the shops were even open and I visited after 12pm. Maybe I visited at the wrong time. The windows of the shops I saw with prices were expensive, probably since it is... More

This is a pretty little "village" with small antique and boutique stores, which is located just off rue Saint Paul in the Marais area. It is quite close to the Place des Vosges. There are also a couple of coffee shops. It is a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. On weekends, in the summer, there is also... More

One of my favourite spots when visiting Paris. A nice maze of small streets with nice boutiques where you can walk through, and imagine yourself centuries back in time.

I wish I hadn't come across this little slice of Paris on my last day and after I'd just had lunch! It's a lovely little spot, between the Seine and the Place des Vosges. So many tiny antique and arty/crafty shops but I timed it to arrive just as all the owners were sitting in their courtyards enjoying their lunch... More

My wife and I arrived in Paris on a Saturday around noon after our red eye flight from the States this past Nivember. 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

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.

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.
