The Marais is one of our favourite quartiers. Much of the area dates from the 16th and 17th Century, featuring narrow streets, fine architecture, boutiques, antique shops, restaurants, caf?s. Strict building laws protect its authenticity. This is where Parisians choose to wander on weekends! The centerpiece is, of course, the Place des Vosges, the purest example of 17th Century architecture, its arcaded fa?ade set around a central park with trees and benches - great for a picnic lunch!
You will be within easy walking distance to the Picasso and Carnavalet Museums, Bastille Opera, Ile St Louis, Notre Dame, Ile de la Cit? and much more! Just 5 minutes' walk on the rue St Antoine you will find the best specialist food shops (baker, deli, cheese, fish, wine) in the very best French tradition as well as an excellent supermarket. There is a deservedly popular restaurant right on the corner.
Just a step to the north of the Place des Vosges, on a quiet picturesque street, this building dates from around 1750. Set around an enchanting wide cobbled courtyard with a central flower-filled fountain and various tubs of shrubs. Our European first/ US second floor apartment is light and sunny, overlooking the courtyard. Both building and stairwell, in true Parisian tradition, could do with a coat of paint which they will get ... someday !
This is a pretty apartment which was totally renovated in 2002 to make maximum advantage of its 31m., 310 sq. ft. It is small, yet tastefully, comfortably and carefully arranged, very nice for 2 people. It features tall windows, old wood floors polished with bright rugs, sunny yellow color scheme, nice country antiques. A romantic spot for lovers of Paris, or just plain lovers!
