This lively cobblestone street effectively preserves the ambience of Paris of old and is home to countless small shops.

A nice street market in Paris. Well worth the walk and the stroll. Multiple vendors, food stands, and restaurants. I think it worth checking out!

Where the locals go for their shopping. Old fashioned, proper shops, speciality and not a chain amongst them

Much has been written about this little street and though it is charming with lots of cafes and shops, patisseries and vendors, had it not been around the corner from our hotel, I don't think it would have been worth the visit.

We loved the cheese and chocolate stores. It is a nice street with cute shops. I would recommend a la mere de famille for their chocolate. Superb!

This area has restaurants, grocery stores, ATM and cheese shops and fruit and product market and many more. It's just a street yes but if you are staying in the area it's the place to eat and shop.

We enjoyed walking down Rue Cler and stopping in at the different shops. Nice stroll to kill some time.

With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area

precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The
area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon,
the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as
luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants

Are short term apartment rentals still available at 190 Rue De Grenelle?Would really like to let a friend know if apartments are available for short term rentals in this lovely complex? I did go thru Paris Attitude and dealt with a gentleman by the name of Mr. Flipo quite sometime ago. I believe the apt we stayed in went up for sale so could not determine if 190 Rue de Grenelle 75007 was still renting other apartments in their complex. Also if it is possible could someone be so kind to tell me if this is considered Invalides or Eiffel Tower Arr.. Thank you

We stayed in an apartment in Saint Germain (which is a great area to stay in) so I don't know anything about the apartments you are asking about. Rue Cler is in the 7th Arrondissement / Eiffel Tower.
