Paris Marais District Tours

by admin
Monday November 24th, 2014

The Marais district is a historic district of Paris.
It is a veritable catalog of Parisian aristocratic architecture and extends from the 3rd to 4th district ( the Left and Right Bank).
Today, the Marais has become a destination for it’s art galleries and since its renovation, it also has became the world renowned for being the home to the Fashion Week. It also has trendy restaurants, boutiques and chic exhibitions, which has earned it a more valued reputation than even the Champs Elysees.
Since the ‘80s, the neighborhood has become a gay community, particularly through the development of gay shops, nightclubs, cabarets, especially in the southern part of the Marais, near the Rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie and Rue des Archives.
This area is also home to a large part of the Jewish community mainly from Eastern Europe (cf.rue Rozier, the Pletzl), but also has a Chinese community in the Northern Quarter, especially towards the Republic Square and the businesses are mainly textile shops and jewelers.
Among the charms of the neighborhood are the Picasso Museum, the house of Nicolas Flamel, the Cognac-Jay Museum, the Carnavalet Museum and the new Café Charlo.

Duration: 3 hours

People: max 4

    The one bedroom flat was exactly what we were looking for in Paris; very clean, great location, close to Metro station, non-hotel feel with access to local Parisian fare. Nadia was quick to respond and answered all of my questions. With Eliane's constant communication we were able to navigate transportation with ease from the airport. Eliane greeted us and was...

Nadia was quick to respond and answered all of my questions. With Eliane's constant communication we were able to navigate transportation with ease from the airport. Eliane greeted us and was very gracious even upon our departure. I would definitely stay here again. California, USA, May 2013

    The surrounding of the apartment is very quite. And the location is quite amazing cuz it takes little time to walk to the Champs Elysees and the entrances of metro line 1. We enjoyed the time living there. BTW, the actual looking of the apartment is much better than in the photos. January 2014 Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

    We loved our stay! Everything about the apartment was just as stated on the website. It was TINY...but I had expected that, plenty of room though for two adults. It was very very clean and the bathroom was very nice and modern. I loved that we each had our own beds which were comfortable with nice bedding. The neighborhood was...

It was very very clean and the bathroom was very nice and modern. I loved that we each had our own beds which were comfortable with nice bedding. The neighborhood was great with nearby metro, shopping, bakeries etc. And walking distance to the Eiffle Tower. Our trip was perfect and we would definitely recommend!! Thanks Nadia and Jaqueline!!

    Sweet apartment at Marais, heart of Paris. Unadulterated old European charm, last floor up a curvy staircase, authentic Parisian style. If you want to get the ultimate Parisian experience from within, not flashy but very much real - this is the place to go. Nadia was extremely helpful at all the stages of the trip, even before we set foot...

    Sweet apartment at Marais, heart of Paris. Unadulterated old European charm, last floor up a curvy staircase, authentic Parisian style. If you want to get the ultimate Parisian experience from within, not flashy but very much real - this is the place to go. Nadia was extremely helpful at all the stages of the trip, even before we set foot on French soil. She was responding to our emails and inquiries usually within one hour or less, very accessible! Eliane, the apartment owner who stayed next door, was also very available, helpful and open to share. Both know perfect English (not a given in France), which makes communication a breeze. Fridge is small and ancient but works well, and all the appliances are in perfect working order. WiFi is there and it's working. If you love philosophy and history and Latin, and you read French, Eliane has plenty of those books on her shelves. Bottom line:  Like that croissant out of a stove just few minutes ago in a coffee shop at the corner down the street, go for this delicious, tender, warm, unassuming and madly romantic taste of real France! Looking forward to visiting Nadia's place again! Jerusalem, Israel , August 2011

     For 6 days we stayed in this appartment and it was a great stay! In the street there are many restaurants and a very good bakery. Metro and supermarket are around the corner. The apt is really cosy, light and the artworks are very nice. There are 2 beds (for 2 persons) so you have to go with people who like to sleep together :) If we visit Paris next time, we will stay at this apt again!Thank you, Nadia. for booking us in this apt!

    Квартира расположена в прекрасном месте, до многих достопримечательностей рукой подать: в 15 минутах ходьбы – музей Помпиду, метро – 3 минуты. Есть плита, электрочайник, холодильник, посуда, т.е. всё необходимое, если вы планируете, как и мы иногда, готовить дома. В наличии интернет. На момент нашего проживания в квартире было 2 двуспальные кровати и один матрас. Есть и пара минусов. В момент,...

    Квартира расположена в прекрасном месте, до многих достопримечательностей рукой подать: в 15 минутах ходьбы – музей Помпиду, метро – 3 минуты. Есть плита, электрочайник, холодильник, посуда, т.е. всё необходимое, если вы планируете, как и мы иногда, готовить дома. В наличии интернет. На момент нашего проживания в квартире было 2 двуспальные кровати и один матрас. Есть и пара минусов. В момент, когда мы проживали, весь дом был обложен лесами и шёл ремонт, что сказывалось шумом, а также отсутствием вида из окон, два из которых выходят на основную улицу. В квартире две ванные комнаты (совмещены с туалетом), в одной из них проблемы со смесителем. В целом всё не очень ухожено и опрятно. Но с учётом того, что мы там появлялись только вечером, нас такой вариант вполне устроил. В соотношении цена/качество, учитывая местоположение, я бы поставил этому варианту 4 из 5. Moscow, Mai 2017
