YOUR COURETTE OR MINE?
Here in Le Marais, one of Paris' most historic districts, what's old is new, as the coolest of the city's denizens make this arrondissements their home. Back in college, my friend Mimi shared with me her dream that someday she'd have a place here, right near the Hotel de Ville - City Hall. Since then, this section of the city, one of Paris' oldest, has become hipper than the Rive Gauche.

Additional Location Information
The apartment is located in the 3rd district just a short walk from the heart of the Marais.
The Marais is one of the oldest and most historic areas in Paris. A place of aristocratic residence in the seventeenth century, it was abandoned during the Revolution and became an architectural wasteland. The Marais was not touched by Baron Haussmann during his work in the 1830s to make Paris the most modern city in nineteenth-century Europe. As a result, the Marais retains its pre-nineteenth century splendour and old world charm. In 1962 it was declared an historic area, and restoration efforts were begun. The area is now one of Paris' most fashionable neighborhoods, with many galleries, restaurants, boutiques, museums and cultural centers.
Nearby are the Pompidou/Beaubourg Museum, the Picasso Museum, the Louvre Museum and the magnificent Place des Vosges.
The Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est train stations are both nearby. Orly and Charles de Gaulle Airports are easily reachable by taxi or Metro.
