The Jardin de l'Intendant is a sculptured garden on the grounds of Les Invalides. It sits off to the west side from which there is no exit and is usually very quiet and empty. I have a short memory and have at least twice tried to leave the grounds in this direction only to turn around. The photos void of people have been my reward both times in two different seasons. The summer flowers had not yet been planted but the beds were ready. If you are in this area it would be a delightful place of repose and quiet, worth a visit.
