MIJE Fourcy, calm and comfort in the Marais district
An historical past
Before becoming a youth hostel in 1978, the Hôtel Charpentier known as “Le Fourcy” has a long history. In 1500 it was under the authority of the Saint-Eloi Priory and was inhabited by a King’s Counsellor, a certain Christophe Ripault. Gilles Charpentier acquired it in 1677 and transformed the house into a hotel. It had many inhabitants (the widow of a governor, a button maker, a boilermaker, a dairyman, a liquor merchant, a shoemaker, etc.), was divided in two and then reunited. It then housed one of the most famous “brothels” in Paris, “Le Moulin Galant”, which was closed in 1946.
In 1978, the City of Paris, owner of the premises, gave the Charpentier Hotel to MIJE, who completely restored the buildings to accommodate young people from all over the world.
