Saint-Maurice is a crossroads of communication and an innovative employment area right next to
Paris. This privileged location has made Val-de-Marne one of the most attractive areas in the Paris
Saint-Maurice and its Economy
Saint-Maurice is provided with three important economic centres:
..A public health centre with two hospitals (the Hôpital National and Hôpital Esquirol) and the Institut de
Veille Sanitaire (Health Monitoring Institute).
..A water and environmental centre with OTV (Véolia), Anjou Recherche and the Client Service Centre
of the Générale des Eaux.
..A major training centre, with the School of Physiotherapy, the Moulin de Chaussée Apprenticeship
Training Centre and the Training Centre for Apprenticeship in the Automobile Trade.
Office jobs represent more than a third of the employment in Val-de-Marne, and the expansion of the
tertiary sector of the economy represents a sizeable stake for the attraction of office jobs and for
keeping these jobs in the Department.
Furthermore, Val-de-Marne offers certain advantages for the welcome of businesses:
landed property and valuable sites at the gates of Paris
a dense grid of road services and public transport
attractive rental values
The economy is based around Orly-Rungis, its health-oriented businesses and the cinema. The Orly
hub is the second most important employment area in the Ile-de-France, with 60,000 jobs. With
the venture of a third airport for Paris having been placed aside for the moment, the project for
construction of a third air terminal at Orly Airport has been relaunched. Logistics represents one of the
strongest points of the Val-de-Marne, thanks to excellent and varied transport facilities at the gates of
Paris: air, road, river and railway. The international wholesale food market at Rungis profits fully
from these possibilities.
Health is a major sector in the Department, with the concentration of renowned hospital and research
centres: notably the Henri Mondor Teaching Hospital at Créteil and the Gustave-Roussy Institute.
Val-de-Marne is second on the national level, just after Paris, in the area of clinical medicine.
High technology has its dedicated space in the Valley of La Bièvre. Of the 27 towns in this French
"Silicon Valley," ten of them are located in Val-de-Marne. Another important activity, but one which
draws this time upon a tradition going back more than a century: the cinema industry. The loops of the
Marne are particularly involved in this activity, which perpetuates the memory of the Joinville studios.
The Geographical Advantages of Saint-Maurice
At the gates of Paris, bordered by the Bois de Vincennes and the Marne River, Saint-Maurice, the
smallest of the neighbouring towns of Paris, is located at 2 ½ kilometres from the ring roads and
upstream from the confluence of the Seine and the Marne, which cross the town.
The town is edged on the south by the Marne and on the north by a large green breathing space
represented by the Bois de Vincennes. On the east and on the west, Saint-Maurice is edged
respectively by Joinville-le-Pont and Charenton-le-Pont.
Its geographic environment gives it the form of a barbell, with the Gravelle and Ecluse district on the
east and the Plateau district on the west.
These two districts are joined together for 3 kilometres by the Rue du Maréchal Leclerc, which is
inserted between the Bois de Vincennes and the A4 motorway.
In just a few years, from one area to another, the town has been transformed and embellished.
Sometimes this has been by small touches, such as in the old quarter of the Plateau, or other times in
more spectacular ways, such as in the new quarter of Gravelle.
Saint-Maurice, the town with such a particular geographical shape, has known how to preserve its
heritage and has lost nothing of its charm, while at the same time building a new identity and
developing new advantages.
The Val-de-Marne: A Scenic Department
The banks of the Marne, with its open-air cafés and restaurants and its isles represent a remarkable
site, well-known for a long time by tourists in search of a change in scenery.
Firmly turned towards modernity, the Contemporary Art Museum of Val-de-Marne offers a space in
the town centre of Vitry-sur-Seine dedicated to art in France since 1950 which covers 10,000 square
The Lake of Créteil covers 40 hectares and notably offers sail-boating. This urban lake is also an
important natural site designed to facilitate the migrations of birds. The Val-de-Marne is also a land of
castles where you can visit, among others, the Château of Vincennes and the Château of Grosbois.
It also holds prize pearls such as the most magnificent rose garden in the world: The Roseraie du Val-
de-Marne, created in 1894 by Jules Gravereaux.
Lovely old homes dating from the beginning of the 20th century.
The milestone grit structures are typical of the buildings in the Paris suburbs. The most beautiful, in
Art Nouveau style, are the villas built for the rich Parisians who wished to relax in the countryside
surrounding Paris. A certain number of these homes are distinguished by decorations in wrought iron
(glass screens, doors, windows…), bricks and ceramic tiles which form genuine architectural
curiosities which can be discovered during relaxing walks, especially in the streets of the older towns
How to Get There
The Department can count on a solid transport network combining air, road, railway and river
