Location, location, location… The Marais


The Marais was the dream location for our client.


Having visited Paris many times over the years, this area in the 4th arrondissement (district) was top of the list.


But what is the attraction of the Marais? It’s really not hard to explain.


A trendy and romantic corner of the city, it’s packed with charm thanks to its cobblestone streets, designer boutiques, chic hotels, and gourmet food shops. There are also a wealth of restaurants and bars around virtually every corner.


The Marais has a village feel and was actually built on marshland (‘marais’ in French), hence its name. It is one of the few areas in Paris that was not renovated during the Haussmann era, preserving much of its original charm.


It’s like a picture-postcard of Paris, and both tourists and Parisians love to visit here. There are many 17th-century mansions and dozens of historic landmarks. This includes the Hôtel de Ville and the Place des Vosges, the city’s oldest square.
