The village was just across the Rue St. Antoine from my hotel. There was a brocante (second-hand items sale) one Saturday morning, which was fascinating to look around. The area has lots of antique stores, along with lots of other cute boutiques (lots of jewelry). Charming little passages, lots of places to eat, from fast food to expensive. Definitely a... More

They are popping up everywhere, those trendy brunch deal, but mainly targeting unsuspecting tourists. Some have their main restaurant based in USA or UK, then the big price is justified, but the others are just jumping on the wagon charging ample profit. I have once had to pay over 26 euros for scrambled eggs that was as tough as rubber... More

One of those charming places hidden away in Paris, but to get the full flavour you really need to go on one of its market days, especially Saturday or Sunday morning. The market specialises in antiques, curiosities and unusual bric a bric; however, there are a few charming coffee places and bistros where you can have a meal. The market... More

Showing a friend around Paris on her first visit to France, I had to bring her to the Marais, and once we had seen Place des Vosges and Hotel de Sens, I figured Village St-Paul would be a good place to do some shopping and hopefully stop for rest and refreshment. Well, it being Sunday, the shops were close, but... More

Went there looking for a gift my wife on the recommendation of a parisian but only found antique items. I was looking for something more modern. Not as busy as the Marais, but really only one street long. not worth seeking out unless you like antiques.

I'd read about this on a blog and was excited to get there. What a disappointment. Not much there at all.

This is a very old part of Paris. Its full of small quaint streets with hidden away cafes and antique shops. Some really interesting things to find. It's lovely to walk around and explore. While there make sure you visit St Paul's Church too.

During the week, it's quiet and not many stores were open. The Village website lists monthly brocantes dates and we went on March 19 (11AM-7PM according to a store staff who told us in advance). There were lots of vendor booths set up in 4 courtyard areas (connected through arched doorways and there are some steps in between). There were... More

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.
