Park - The 3rd arrondissement of Paris has no less than 10 squares and gardens among the most beautiful parks and gardens of Paris without forgetting the Place des Vosges of the 4th arrondissement, which is very close to the property on sale:
• Square Saint-Gilles Grand Veneur - Pauline-Roland: Tucked away within a maze of narrow streets, far from the madding crowd and the noise and bustle of Paris, is a little known, rarely visited but utterly charming haven of peace – the Jardin Saint-Gilles-Grand-Veneur, with its magnificent view of the façade of the Hôtel du Grand Veneur townhouse. But the main reason people come here is for some peace and quiet, or to settle down on the stone benches in the lovely rose arbour for a quiet chat. It is a serene refuge for couples.
• Jardin de Rohan: The Rohan garden, renovated and ropened in 2011, is ideally located in the historic Marais district. It is one of the gardens of the National Archives. You can walk by the impressive courtyard of the Hotel de Soubise after passing through one of the oldest alleyways of the capital. From the garden you can admire the façade of the 17th century Hotel de Rohan. A romantic and intimate place to walk for all lovers of Paris.
• Square Georges Cain: Square Georges Cain on Rue Payenne is located a stone’s throw from the Carnavalet Museum. Although this little park is situated amid the bustle of the trendy Marais district, it provides a 2,128-m² oasis of greenery to people who’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon it, and neighbourhood regulars who would like to keep it a secret. Two artworks set the square apart from other Paris parks and gardens: ‘L'Aurore’, a bronze statue of a nude woman in the middle of a rose bed by the 17th-century sculptor Laurent Magnier, and ‘Le Rossignol Electrique’ by Eric Samakh (1990), a small electronic bird that starts singing whenever the wind blows. The park is the perfect place to have a picnic or play a game of cards on the lawn.
• Square du Temple: The site of the commandry of the knights of the Order of the Temple in the 13th century, the square du Temple became the scene of bloody repressions when the Templars were considered heretics. Thankfully it’s a much more peaceful place today. The square du Temple is an English landscaped garden embellished with numerous exotic trees (American honey locust, goldenrain tree, Ginkgo Biloba) and some remarkable specimens (including an 18-metre tall Turkish hazel, and a 17-metre tall Japanese pagoda tree). The wildlife in this large garden has never been so vibrant. Many different species of birds come to refresh themselves near the ornamental pool and waterfall made using rocks from the forest of Fontainebleau.
• Jardin Anne Frank: This community garden surrounded by a high wall tracing city walls of Paris boasts 2,200 m² of land. Its name pays homage to Anne Frank (1929-1945), a victim of Nazi barbarism during World War II. It is composed of a central plot dating from the 17th century, a contemporary shady space (in which a graft of the chestnut tree that Anne Frank admired from her window was planted on 20 June 2007) and an orchard.
• Place des Vosges: It is the Crown jewel of a 4th arrondissement, one of the most beautiful. Visitors stroll under the arches or along the paths of the central garden, taking time to admire the beautiful facades of red brick. Shops, open on Sundays contribute to the liveliness of the spot. The square is the ideal departure point for a walk in the Marais, one of the most charming historic neighbourhoods in the capital, with its rich heritage and special atmosphere. The many mansions of the 17th and 18th centuries have been transformed into internationally renowned museums: Musée Picasso Paris, Musée Carnavalet, the house of Victor Hugo museum ... The Rue des Rosiers, the epicentre of the Parisian Jewish community, is well worth discovering for its atmosphere, its shops and its restaurants. And with countless bars and clubs, the Marais is the biggest gay district in France.
3rd Arrondissement - Mostly a residential neighborhood, it is the quieter part of the medieval district of Le Marais, and one of most pleasant places to live in Paris. Sophisticated village, it contains several open-air markets and squares like the 'Carreau du Temple', the Garden of the 'Hôtel Salé' (Picasso Museum), the garden 'Saint-Gilles-Grand-Veneur' and also the famous and beautiful Place des Vosges. The Oldest surviving private house of Paris, built in 1407, is to be found in this arrondissement, precisely along Rue de Montmorency (its first owner claimed to possess the philosopher's stone…!). The area includes beautiful buildings and many mansions like 'Hôtel de Montmorency', 'Hôtel de Marle' or 'Hôtel Albret'. From the 17th century, the districts is inhabited by the nobility including Madame de Sevigné, hence the name of one of its current street. Some streets such as Rue de Bretagne, Rue de Montmorency, Rue Charlot or Rue de Braque are particularly sought after. The district was the place where several communities including Auvergnat, Jewish and Chinese established over the centuries.
