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

    My girlfriend and I both instantly fell in love with the apartment, it is even nicer in person compared to the pictures. We also started to appreciate the location after visiting other areas as it is really central and lively. The host was really accessible and made sure we had everything we needed. Overall great experience New York, October 2017

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have...

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have an 11 month old and were able to have our dinner and wine without disturbing our son sleeping in one of the bedrooms. The outside patio is beautiful and feels very private. The location is great, away from the busy and touristy center with a more local feel. There is a great bakery just down the street, as well as two supermarkets close by. It takes about 20 minutes by metro to go "downtown", with the metro stop (Dausmenil), which is a block or so away. Nadia helped us get a cab to the airport and even paid the $5.00 reservation fee for us, which was very nice of her. All in all, I will never choose a hotel room over an apartment again, and am a big fan of bnb. We hope to return to Paris someday, and would for sure want to stay in Nadia's place again.

    The apartment was clean and had all the amenities that we were looking for. There's free wifi which works really well and the apartment was clean when we received it. I guess Paris is an expensive city. I was expecting something much larger. Since I was traveling with my mom, I wanted it to be uber comfortable and relaxing. This...

    The apartment was clean and had all the amenities that we were looking for. There's free wifi which works really well and the apartment was clean when we received it. I guess Paris is an expensive city. I was expecting something much larger. Since I was traveling with my mom, I wanted it to be uber comfortable and relaxing. This is a good place if you are not planning to spend any time in the apartment. The bedroom is really just a loft space and the bathroom is alongside the kitchen and not in the bed area. I was hoping for something just a bit more spacious for the rate. The shower area could use a separator of some sorts because water does flow out to the basin and toilette area which can be frustrating and hard to keep the place dry. I can't forget to mention that the apartment is in a fantastic area in the 5th arrondissement and super close to the Metro - Jussieu. There's a great Cafe (St Victor) just footsteps from the apartment and also the famous Boulangerie - Eric Kayser is a couple blocks away on Rue Monge. We loved the area and loved walking around there. It's safe and convenient. San Mateo, California, United States

    The apartment was wonderful! fantastic location 2 blocks from the Seine and 2 more to Notre Dame, easy walking to all the museums and parks along the river as well as the isle st louis with lots of great, affordable restaurants. Cafe Med! the bed was comfortable and the full height and length mirrors on the closet made it seem bigger and added to the fun. the 3 windows allowed for plenty of light and air and the blackout curtains were effective at blocking the light for late sleeping. pretty quiet (for a big city) 1 way street and the other building tenants were quiet. the 92 stairs up were tough our first day with luggage but were not a big deal otherwise. The kitchen has 2 burner electric cooktop and a microwave but no stove. We made drip coffee everyday (no coffee grinder so buy ground coffee) and the milk steamer on the espresso machine was a nice treat. plenty of nearby grocery stores. The dishwasher was nice to have. although there is no clothes drier we found the heated towel rack left the towels soft and warm for the next use, really nice. Dishwasher, laundry detergent, coffee filters, etc and basic condiments were well stocked. the Sony stereo has a CD player and high quality sound. Wifi worked great. If you travel from outside Europe you will need power adapters for your electrical appliances although the wifi and cable boxes have standard USB ports for charging cell phones which helped alot. 2 different Metro lines within 5 minute walk as well as the 87 bus (which goes from the Eiffel tower directly to a stop 1 block away) and the 67 bus (which goes to Montmartre from the same stop) made it really easy to get around.

    Die Penthouse-Wohnung im 12. Arrondissement war für uns perfekt gelegen - die Metro ist 5 Minuten entfernt, ein Bäcker ist sehr nah, ebenso ein Monoprix. Diverse Restaurants sind in Laufweite. Die Nachbarschaft haben wir als sehr angenehm empfunden. Wir fühlten uns sehr sicher und wohl.

Die Nachbarschaft haben wir als sehr angenehm empfunden. Wir fühlten uns sehr sicher und wohl. Wir waren mit unseren 9-jährigen Kindern hier und haben auch die fantastische Dachterrasse bei wunderbarem Wetter sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Nachts war es ruhig. Die Betten sind französische Betten - das war für uns etwas ungewohnt, aber letztlich hat es super geklappt. Wir wurden sehr sehr freundlich begrüßt und uns erwarteten Getränke, Milch und eine Flasche Wein im Kühlschrank. Alles in allem ein super Aufenthalt. Vielen Dank ! Hanover-April 2017

    Our family of 4 just spent nearly a week in this charming bohemian flat just a few metro stops away from the bustle and excitement of Paris. The apartment was very clean and warmly decorated with wood floors and cute furnishings. Our family felt at home with the owner's vast collection of music cd's (jazz, opera, and classical), filled book shelves, and artwork. After a day filled with walking and sight seeing, we loved returning to the residential neighborhood in the 12th aromdisment. We maneuvered throughout the city easily via the metro station 2 blocks away from the apartment and always felt safe. The sunroom and outdoor terrace was welcome respite after a day of sight seeing and traveling. We discovered a great bakery a few blocks away that was our go-to place for panini sandwiches and pastries in the mornings. The sleeping arrangements were great for our family of 4 with a queen size bed in one room and a queen in the other room that our 2 daughters shared. It looks like there was 1 single pull out/ futon style sofa in the living room. The photos on the site are a true representation of the flat and it's as cute in personas it shows on line. Hotel rooms in Europe are small and expensive...I would say that this is our new way to travel and loved this apartment experience. Nadia met us upon our arrival as promised and was easily reached by phone when questions arose. San Jose, California, United States, May 2012

    The apartment was very well located right next to a couple metro and bus stops.  The washing machine had a little trouble for us but I assume the owner will have taken care of that by now. The shower has some weird black spots in the grout that make it seem not super clean. It did feel very secure though...

    The apartment was very well located right next to a couple metro and bus stops.  The washing machine had a little trouble for us but I assume the owner will have taken care of that by now. The shower has some weird black spots in the grout that make it seem not super clean. It did feel very secure though as advertised. Kitchen had everything we needed and it was a good place for a short stay to be able to see all the popular sights.   May 2015, COLORADO, US
