Make a holiday rental apartment or chateau in Le Marais, Paris your home away from home

The 3rd arrondissement of Paris, Le Marais, is the second smallest in the whole of the French capital, but there is still a huge amount to see and do within its boundaries. Located on the right bank of the River Seine, and right in the centre of Paris, Le Marais is both central and noticeably more peaceful than its neighbours, providing a magnificent base for independent exploration.

Things to do on holiday in Le Marais, Paris

The Le Marais arrondissement of Paris has great importance historically. The oldest house in Paris is within the arrondissement, as well as the beautiful Temple Fortress, whose gardens are a haven of peace and nature during the summer. The most recognised symbol of Le Marais is the medieval Priory of Saint-Martin-des-Champs, which now houses the Musee des Arts et Metiers, containing some of the most remarkable scientific instruments and inventions from throughout the ages. The museum is an absolute marvel, and if you have no interest in technology upon your arrival, you undoubtedly will by the time you leave! The 3rd arrondissement is also home to the Carnavalet Museum, built in two of Le Marais’ chateau, celebrating the long and turbulent history of Paris.

Le Marais has historically been a distinctly bourgeois area of Paris, and walking the streets you can understand why. There are many notable chateaux in Le Marais, many of which have been turned into museums (to hunting, local crafts, magic and the works of Picasso amongst others) or hotels. Le Marais has a fantastically laid back atmosphere, which is a surprise given its location in the heart of Paris, but it does make staying in the arrondissement a real treat, especially if you are spending the days exploring the centre of Paris along with the rest of the summer crowds.

Holiday makers in Paris with an eye for fashion will also regularly find themselves in Le Marais, as the arrondissement is filled with small, unique fashion boutiques which have be curators of style for many, many decades.

It is perfectly furnished and elegantly equipped, with plenty of room to sit at the table and enjoy a home cooked meal. The location is ideal for access to everywhere in the city and Thierry was a charming and helpful host.

It was exactly what was needed to rekindle my passion for the City of Light. Firstly, the apartment is beautifully appointed; it’s evident that the owners have put a great deal of thought and love into the décor. The kitchen is well equipped, the quality of the bed is better than I have at home, and the draperies keep it dark at night and allow the natural light in during the day. The modern décor reflects a neighborhood that is home to the Picasso Museum among others. The apartment and building are clean, attractive, and well maintained. The neighborhood is Parisian, a quality I have seen disappear over my last forty years of Paris visits. The people are friendly, the boulangerie on the corner provides delicious pastries and lunches to take back to the apartment, the Bastille open-air food market on Blvd. Richard Lenoir (market days Thursday and Sunday) is everything a foodie could hope for, and restaurants in the area exceeded expectations. Chez Janou, a block and a half down the street, and Page 35 on Rue du Parc Royal were favorites. Metro and bus stops are conveniently close, making it easy to travel to restaurants, museums, and sites throughout the city; however, the walk via Ile Saint Lewis to or from the Latin Quarter or 6th arrondissement is under thirty minutes and beautiful. Finally, Christine was prompt, flexible, and informative in all our interactions. She arranged for a friend to meet us and give us a tour of the apartment and neighborhood, pointing out shops, restaurants, and services we might need. My husband and I are grateful to her for sharing this little slice of Paris with us and hope to return. Thank you.
