  • The Marais gets it's name because it was built on marshland back in the day. This is one of the older parts of Paris and today it's home to lots of trendy little boutiques, art galleries, and Paris's gay community. There's also a large Jewish population, particularly on the Rue des Rosiers, where you can dine on traditional Jewish food.

    This is the ideal district to get new fashion trends and it is full of different small shops, which makes it a really nice visit and with a very personal service (sometimes you will be attended by the owners theirselves). It still has a local atmosphere!!!

    Marais is like a little Paris for me, with all its little streets.

    The Marais – and particularly the “High-Marais” around rue de Bretagne – is at the heart of Paris, on the right bank of the Seine, and concentrates fashion designers, contemporary art galeries and trendy restaurants.

    Le Marais is a fashion and business district in Paris, full of banks and lawyers and it is where the most important Jewish community in Europe lives. It has become quite gay and because of that nowadays it is full with new coffee houses, discos, cabarets and fashion shops. Jim Morrison used to live in the number 17 of this street, on the second floor. He was found dead here in his bath in 1971.
