Invalides-Ecole Militaire feels boldly Parisian. Despite the neighborhood’s military history and ceaseless influx of visitors, its locally owned boulangeries, boutiques, and bakeries maintain Invalides-Ecole Militaire’s intimately microcosmic allure. Weave out of its narrow streets and into its wide boulevards, and be greeted with visions of Parisian grandeur—classical architectural marvels like the 18th century Ecole Militaire share the skyline with contemporary achievements like the Eiffel Tower.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

Outside the Gates of Invalides, A Peaceful Residential Neighborhood
This location has two main advantages. On the one hand you have the peaceful, elegant and safe “quartier” where many private residences, embassies and ministries are located. And of course some typical local shops, cafés, restaurants, (and all the basics you might need for your stay). On the other hand you are very close to the heart of Paris, which exudes vitality and charm day and night."
