Experience Le Marais in holiday homes to rent

Paris is one of the most famous cities in the world, and it has been for centuries. While there are historical sites all over town, nothing captures its history quite like the Le Marais district. It has long been the site of Paris’ aristocracy, and the rehabilitated historical buildings are a testament to that. It’s not solely historical, however, as you’ll find plenty of trendy shopping centres and cafes here as well. By booking one of the local holiday homes to rent, you can experience it all for yourself as if you were a local.

History

Historical sites near Le Marais holiday rentals

As the historically aristocratic district of Paris, Le Marais is full of historical sites, so you’ll never have to stray too far from local holiday rentals to see some iconic destinations. You can visit the Archives Nationales to see historical records dating back over a thousand years, with the Le Marais location focusing on the history prior to the French Revolution. Admission to the public is free as well. You may also want to visit the Musée Picasso. Located within the historic Hôtel Salé, this gallery houses over 5,000 works produced by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso.

How to get around

Transport to your Le Marais holiday accommodation

Arriving at your Le Marais holiday accommodation is remarkably easy. Just about every road in France leads to Paris eventually, and the city itself is home to three airports. It’s important to know, however, that Paris is not highly suited for cars, as the streets are narrow and parking costs tend to be high. The public transportation system, though, is robust and can take you all around Le Marais and the rest of the city. You’ll find numerous bus lines, tramway lines and an underground rapid-transit service that can get you wherever you need to go.

Restaurants and bars

Restaurants near Le Marais holiday homes

Le Marais is effectively Paris’ Jewish quarter, and that cultural influence has had a huge impact on the local restaurant scene. When you stroll down Rue des Rosiers, one of the most popular streets in the area, you’ll find plenty of French and even American-style restaurants, but Jewish restaurants reign supreme in this neighbourhood. Falafel is prominent, and you’ll also find cream puffs and crepes in virtually every other restaurant you pass. Given the popularity of fashion and general wellness in Le Marais and Paris, you’ll also find an abundance of healthy and vegetarian eateries.

Essential info

Key facts to know before arriving at Le Marais holiday homes

Before you reach Le Marais holiday homes or France in general, there are a few key facts to know first. You may want to learn some French before you visit. Parisians can be accommodating to travellers, but things may go better if you at least try to speak some French. People will be more appreciative of the effort than they will be annoyed by linguistic mistakes. France also uses the euro, so you’ll have to get your currency exchanged if you want cash on hand. Having cash is helpful if you plan on tipping service workers. While tipping is not mandatory, it is customary to leave small tips for most service workers including restaurant staff and taxi drivers, though rounding up to the nearest euro is typically enough. This area of Paris is also notably friendly to LGBT travellers as it’s home to about 40% of the LGBT businesses in the entire city.
