32 rue St. Paul is located in the heart of le Marais (the 4th arrondissement), what many consider the most beautiful and historic neighborhood in Paris. The studio looks onto the stone courtyard of a lovely 18th-century building. It is recently renovated, very comfortably furnished. Most of the buildings in the Marais date from the 17th and 18th centuries, and the narrow streets, beautiful squares, and stunning architecture provide for hours of delightful rambling and exploration. We have three metros close by: St. Paul, Pont Marie and Bastille. The studio is within easy walking distance of the Place de Vosges, the Bastille, the river Seine, Ile St.-Louis, Notre Dame, the new Paris Opera House (at Bastille), theaters, cinema, open markets and shopping of every sort (be sure to pop into the charming Village St. Paul, right across the street, with its many antique shops and cobble-stoned courtyards). You’ll find a multitude of museums in the immediate vicinity: cf. especially the world-renowned Picasso Museum, the Musée Cognacq-Jay, where you not only get wonderful artworks but an 18th-century mansion, the Maison Internationale de la photographie, the Musée Victor Hugo at the Place de Vosges, the Musée Carnavalet, the latter two of which now have the added bonus of being free! Just across rue St. Antoine, the Hotel de Sully nearly always has first-rate exhibits—definitely worth checking out. The Pompidou Center is also within walking distance, with its excellent Museum of Modern Art, its many permanent and special exhibits, and fabulous views.
