Paris has long captivated the hearts of visitors from around the world, with its streets rich in history, its fine cuisine, and of course, its romantic ambiance; where better, we thought, to spend a bit of quality time together? We found Les Jardins du Marais to be the perfect backdrop for all of the above. Nestled in a trendy neighbourhood, this charming hotel gave us the opportunity to experience the city like never before.

The largest boutique hotel in Paris, Les Jardins du Marais exudes art deco flair and made a great first impression. We quickly unpacked and were soon enjoying the warm ambiance of our suite, with its wonderful view of the hotel’s beautifully designed inner terrace and gardens; no effort had been spared in creating the ultimate space for relaxation.

Our generous bed was especially welcome at the end of our first enjoyable but tiring day in Paris, and our room was an excellent combination of comfort and luxury. The hotel was a great base for our excursions in and around the city, and we were easily able to pop back to our room to freshen up during before stepping out in the evening.

After a busy day out we needed to refuel. The fine cuisine of Les Jardins du Marais’ restaurant offered a memorable dining experience; delicious modern French-style food in elegant, welcoming surroundings, complete with a sparkling chandelier to add to the ambience. The warm early evening sun gave way to nightfall in the City of Light – the perfect end to our much-needed break.


Spending a weekend immersed in the finer things that Paris has to offer is part of the attraction of the city. Using Les Jardins du Marais as a base, we found it easy to navigate the streets and locate its famous sites; as we were only in the city for the weekend, we wanted to maximise our time and didn’t want to miss a thing.

We made a start with the Place des Vosges, the oldest planned square in the city, and just a 10 minute walk away. Sporting stunning architecture and dotted with fountains, we strolled slowly through the square admiring our surroundings.

Still within the confines of the Place des Vosges, we fell in with the throng and stumbled upon the house of Victor Hugo. Fans of Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame apparently flock here to glimpse the place where the writer passed his final days.

Another unmissable destination within easy reach of Les Jardins du Marais is the Carnavalet Museum, which is dedicated to the history of Paris. A former 16th century mansion, the government purchased the building in 1866 for its historical collections. When we entered through the front gates it felt like we were stepping back in time. The museum boasts an extensive collection of paintings, drawings, engravings, photographs, and sculptures.

At the end of a fascinating day in the galleries and museums, we made our way back to the comfort of our hotel – just in time for dinner and to plan our next excursion into the city.
