We stayed in an apartment in the Marais. It was perfect, close to the metro, close to boutiques and restaurants and a store across the street from our apartment. We could wander the Marais for many days and not be bored.

Liked - lots of museums, shops, cafes. One of the best areas of Paris to wander around, it down for a glass of wine and food. Disliked - weekend crowds.

One of the nicest areas in Paris, one we are in love with. The Place des Vosges is beautifully alive, particularly at end of school time, and walking around to the various 'Hôtels' gives an idea of what Paris was 3 centuries ago. At least for the well-off... If your first stay in Paris is more than 3 days long,... More

My two sister and I stayed in an apartment on la rue Beaubourg while we spent four days exploring Paris. This was an ideal spot with a couple of boulangeries and a local Carrefour just a few minutes away. The area was great; some excellent small restaurants of every ethnicity, lots of fascinating little shops, two Metro stations within minutes... More

Great area of paris to eat, shop or hang out at the park on the grass on a nice day. The jewish museum is nearby and there are many great spots for drinks or food, night or day.

if youwant understated class, this is the place to be. Good restaurants, nice shopping, great hidden palaces, and art in the Place des Vosges. And have a Mexican cocktail in the TexMex at twilght opposite the school of dance - a unique experience.

I personally like this neighborhood because, unlike much of Paris, this area still has small streets and small squares, full of artistic shops and great restaurants and cafes. This area boasts the homes of many famous French authors and is worth a visit. I like to stay in an apartment on the Place De Vosges.

Loved, loved loved Le Marais. The proximity to Ile Saint-Louis, Notre Dame, and the wonderful restaurants and shopping of Le Marais make this region a gem. Our apartment was right in the heart of Le Marais. We had food markets, bakeries, Starbucks - all a quick walk from our home. Plus close to the metro. Perfect place to stay!

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.
