AND ONCE YOU’RE there
Know when your baker goes on holiday! Very important if you are running a hospitality business.
Take care on roundabouts. Some drivers are still working on the old ‘ priorité à droite’ rule and ‘lane discipline’ is not the same as back in the UK.
Lunchtime closing – go with the flow. This is France, not the UK, and shops do close for lunch. Don’t fight it, go to your favourite restaurant and enjoy your meal! Don’t make it ‘little England’. Speak French and integrate.
