Quick Guide: The Marais

Place des Vosges

Surprisingly enough, one the most intriguing and culturally rich districts in Paris actually rose from mere swampland. In fact, the word Marais actually means “swamp”.  For me, the best part about the Marais is that it is one of the few places in the Europe that successfully merges classical beauty with a sort of modern eccentricity.  Although over the years the area had its ups and downs as well as a few dark periods, the modern day Marais is a truly enjoyable place to be and an excellent place to find a Paris vacation apartment rental.

The Marais is mostly located in the 3rd and 4th arrondissements in the very center of Paris, on the left bank of the River Seine.  As far as landmarks and tourist attractions are concerned, it is walking distance to the Louvre, the Seine, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Sorbonne University to name a few.  However, landmarks are really only the tip of the iceberg for tourists staying in one of the many nearby Paris apartment rentals in Marais.  In fact, you could easily spend an entire day just people watching as the area is probably the most ethnically diverse districts of the city as well.

If that’s not enough for you, the Marais also has one of the best selections of places to stay for visitors to Paris.  Hotels are typically pleasant and affordable, but for a truly Parisian experience, a privately owned, short term Paris apartment rental would be a great option as well.  Here at, we offer five Marais based Paris vacation rentals that have been hand picked to cater to the needs of both the first time visitor to Paris and the experienced traveler alike.  For more information, check out our “Apartments” page at or contact a CobbleStay booking agent at 800-608-6548.  Stay tuned for more Paris vacation information to come!
