Paris' 3rd & 4th Arrondissements

Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissements are comprised of some of the quietest and most peaceful areas to live as well as some of the busiest and most bustling districts, making for an extremely desirable place to be.  Although the area, also known as the “Marais,” is not comprised of the most “chic” addresses in Paris, many feel the area is possibly one of the best places to live in the city and also one of the best places to stay if you are renting a Paris vacation apartment.      

Although Paris vacation apartment rentals are somewhat plentiful in this area, has some of the best kept secrets in the Marais neighborhood, ideal for the seasoned Paris traveler.  Like in any of Europe’s most well known cities, many experienced travelers start to look for the places that best assimilate them into the city’s culture.  If this applies to you, staying in one of CobbleStay’s Paris vacation rentals in the 3rd or 4th arrondissements would be a great choice for a number of reasons.  

As mentioned, some areas (mostly in the 3rd arrondissement) can be as quiet and peaceful as it gets for a big city like Paris and are therefore great places to get some rest after a day of exploring the city.  For those who are looking for a more lively environment, the 4th arrondissement is chalk full of cafes, shops, bars and restaurants.  Also, because many of CobbleStay’s Paris apartment rentals come with full kitchens, the many large, open air flea markets and specialty food stores in the area are perfect for bringing home the goods to make an authentically French home cooked meal.

As far as attractions are concerned, there is no shortage here either.  To name a few, the 3rd and 4th arrondissements house the Notre Dame cathedral, Hotel-de-Ville (city hall), the Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers (National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts) and the famed Picasso museum.  These landmarks alone are enough to entertain even the most experienced Paris travelers.  The Notre Dame Cathedral’s impressive stature speaks for itself and the Hotel de Ville is one of the most attractive buildings in the entire city.  For the history buff, the National Conservatory displays a number of original artifacts from the Statue of Liberty and also Foucault’s Pendulum.   For fans of Picasso, the collection housed in the 3rd arrondissement’s Musee Picasso is an absolute must see.  
Needless to say, staying in a Paris vacation rental in the Marais may be the very best way to experience the City of Lights.
