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 went to see the antique fair in village st paul on saturday may 9th. It should have opened at 7 but at 9 only 2 or 3 vendors had set up. It looked like they might have had nice things but i left and never made it back. It was located about 2 blocks off of rue st paul... More

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

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

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.

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.
