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

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

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.
