Good to know... 


Here are some tips you need to know before beginning your shopping in France.




Many shops are closed on sunday and monday

Some are open on sunday morning and monday afternoon. Also, be careful of French public holidays, especially in may !



We usually take lunch between 12:00 and 14:00 and dinner between 19:00 and 21:00

We advise you to schedule your lunch and dinner time in the same time as we do in France. Restaurants are likelly to be closed out of these hours, or some of them will only serve beverages. But don't worry, bakeries and take-away restaurants will serve you at any time. Don't hesitate to book a table by phone, if you want to be sure to eat in the restaurant you chose.



All prices are written including taxes

In shops, bars and restaurants, all prices includes taxes and service. Tips are apreciated by bartenders and waitresses, but not mandatory.
