“My favourite place in Paris”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Le Marais is full of charme. I enjoy walking its streets, laying down in Place des Voges in a sunny afternoon, visiting the art galleries, the Picasso and Jacquemart museums, listening to super gifted street musicians, shopping in the fashion forward boutiques or enjoying some pastry. I simply love it.

“The Best District for Fun (and affordable) Shopping and Little Cafes”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Stayed in an apartment in Le Marais and loved the area! My mom and I wanted to go into every little restaurant and clothing store, everything is so hip! (But not annoyingly hip) And Le Marais is close to everything.

“bohemian, cool and relaxed!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Le Marais is one of my favourite places! So many times been there and still willing to come back. The charm of it stays in the spirit of the people frequenting the neughborhood. Interesting cafes, art galleries, shows and so on... Replenishing!

“Lost its charm”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Marais was the Parisian's artisans neighborhood, with the best craftsmanship ateliers ranging from couture to cabinet makers, with authentic Paris charm. It has now become ostentatiously gay and streets align cheap clothes boutiques of little interest. A few good galleries remain and some beautiful mansions are worth seeing.
