Why we Love Paris in August

August in Paris is the only time of the year where you really feel like you have the City of Light all to yourself.

Many restauranteurs and most boulangeries close up for the month, leaving a few select choices for us to enjoy, ultimately making our decision of where to eat out next much easier! Some people are reluctant to spend their summer holiday in Paris during August, and we can understand why......

SFP's Favorite "no reservation" Restaurants in Paris

In this ever evolving city of light, food and dining out are experiences that the Parisians give high importance to, and we are totally in agreement with that!

Hanukkah in Paris

Even though France is now a secular country and prides itself on laïcité (“freedom of conscience”), it has a long history of Roman Catholicism before the French Revolution got rid of a national religion. This means that while there is no official state religion, the majority of its citizens are Catholic, and thus holidays such as Christmas and Easter are celebrated very publicly, with special lights, giant Christmas trees (sapin in French), and Christmas-themed window and building dressings. What you may not know, though, is that France has the third largest Jewish population in the world (after......
