Small is Beautifull !

Similar in size to Monaco, and spanning just 2 square kilometres, Le Marais has long been the most sought-after district of Paris. Straddling the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, this is where you will find imagination and non-conformism, where all communities coexist in harmony and in creativity, giving a luxurious and fascinating blend of life within a real, authentic village....

We are delighted to announce the launch of the 12th edition of the PARISMARAIS MAP. This new edition, mostly dedicated to gastronomy and luxury, is now online, downloadable and printable as a PDF from our site via this link....

New hotels, new restaurants, new bars, new places to shop and enjoy the historic and former royal district of Paris. Here are our "coup de cœur" for this month.

More beautiful and more attractive than ever, Le Marais will never stop surprising you.


PARISMARAIS.COM has recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, as the domain name was created at the end of 1998! At first it was just a small blog written by empassioned residents of the former royal district and had only a few short posts, and listings of hotels and restaurants… Time after time, with the help of many local, foreign, talented contributors, we ended up creating several touristic tools to help you enjoy Le Marais district with the help of our insider point of view, the most famous of them all being our Marais Map....

Salento, a superb Italian restaurant, first opened in March 2010 on the rue du Temple and is now located on the quiet rue de Jarente, just off the charming Place du Marché St Catherine. Salento offers traditional Italian cuisine revisited according to French tastes. The cuisine is resolutely generous with large portions and is inspired by Mediterranean cuisine and local specialties from Salento, the region of origin of one of the restaurant’s founders. We enjoyed a lunch of delicious ‘al dente’ pasta at this new location with Rosemary Flannery, American tour guide and author and photographer of the 'Angels of Paris: An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris.' We definitely recommend Salento for a great lunch under 20€ in this warm, welcoming bistro decorated with fine work by professional photographers.
