About the Neighborhood
The Marais, the marsh, was the height of fashion in the 17th century. The salons
of important intellectuals thrived here in magnificent private hotels built for them
by the leading architects of the day. But the court packed off to Versailles and
the area fell from fashion. Luckily, the entire quartier was considered not worth
bothering about for a couple of hundred years. In the mid-sixties, it was declared
the first historic preservation district in Paris when it was rediscovered in its
almost pre-Revolutionary state. Mansions were converted to museums; galleries and
boutiques followed. Bars, restaurants and hip tea salons joined the rush. Real estate
prices soared. Today, the Marais is the largest historic district in all France;
but it is also up-to-the-minute fascinating.
On a quiet street (rue des Hospitaliï¿½res-St. Gervais) tucked between the rue des
Rosiers (historic Jewish quarter) and the lively rue Vieille du Temple (great shopping
and restaurants abound). 3 street markets open daily and 2 weekly open air fresh
food markets which are within walking distance of the apartment make cooking a joy!
Centrally-situated. Only a 5 minute walk either South to the historic Ile St. Louis,
North to the Picasso Museum, West to Beaubourg/Les Halles or East to the beautiful,
historic Place des Vosges. Very conveniently located as it is on the No. 1 mï¿½tro
line which crosses most of Paris in 15 minutes. 10 minute walk to the RER train which
goes to Versailles and CDG airport. Most of historic Paris is within a 20 minute
radius on foot.
