The 4th arrondissement: Ile de la Cite and Ile St. Louis - The Birthplace of Paris
The tiny Île de la Cité is where the history of Paris begins. It was here the first inhabitants settled on the small island around 300 BC, and here where the Romans later founded the town of Lutetia. This settlement would become the seat of political and religious power for the ancient Kings of France. As the birthplace of Paris and an important center of wealth and influence, it comes as no surprise that the Île de la Cité boasts some of Paris’ key sights.
Visitors come from around the world to see the famous Notre-Dame Cathedral of Paris. Take a leisurely stroll around the island to visit the Sainte-Chapelle with its breathtaking walls of shimmering stained glass, the grand Palais de Justice law courts, and the Conciergerie, a prison used during the Revolution.
As the neighboring Île St-Louis is often overcrowded with tourists, we prefer the charms of the Île de la Cité, its sister island, where you’ll find the peaceful Place Dauphine, and the many cafés, shops and restaurants, as well as the delightful and colorful year round flower and bird market called the Marché aux Fleurs et Oiseaux. Our apartment rental on Place Dauphine and stunning Minervois luxury Paris apartment offer gorgeous views over this ancient square combined with a convenient central location between the Left Bank and Right Bank.
Just across the river on the Right Bank sits our gorgeous Touraine apartment with stunning views of the Seine and the Île St-Louis. This is a dream spot straight out of a storybook – butchers, bakers, candlestick makers and fairytale views!
The 3rd and 4th Arrondissement & Le Marais
Once the haunt of old nobility, the Le Marais neighborhood in Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissements is a popular and thriving community known for its trendy boutiques, restaurants and vibrant gay community. Tourists crowd the narrow pre-Revolutionary streets to absorb the atmosphere of this lively Parisian neighborhood. Narrow streets mean there are fewer sunlit Paris views and many apartments don’t have elevators. Now the heart of gay Paris, the Marias is home to interesting boutiques and off beat shops and a charming excursion.
The Le Marais neighborhood dates from the 17th century when noblemen began building large mansions here. These are the grand hôtels that line the streets of Le Marais today, many of which have been restored into residences and museums. Be sure to visit the Musée Carnavalet, dedicated to the history of Paris. Le Marais is also home to the Musée Picasso, containing an unparalleled collection of works by this famous modern artist.
One of the highlights of Le Marais is the Place des Vosges, a beautiful historic square. Immerse yourself in the rich architectural history of Paris' historic Marais neighborhood with a stay in our luxurious and peaceful rental apartment only 3 blocks from the Place des Vosages.
