Sundays are one of my favorite days in France. Everything slows down, especially in the countryside. Did you know that you’re not allowed to mow your lawn in many French villages on Sunday? Your peace is protected - no noise, fewer cars, it’s all about relaxing, long meals with friends and family, a promenade after, and probably a sieste (nap) too.

Here is an example itinerary to take advantage of a slow Sunday in Paris:

Stop 1, 9 AM: Coffee and carrot cake at @yellowtucan

Stop 2, 10 AM: Shop the Bastille marché. If you are renting a flat, you can buy ingredients for your Sunday supper. If you’re in a hotel, consider a picnic-style meal for your room or next to the river. Have a glass of white wine and slurp some fresh oysters at the huîtres stand.

Stop 3, 11:30 AM: Take the long way home. Walk from Place de la Bastille down Canal Saint-Martin and enjoy the houseboats on the water. I always like the ones with the big terraces & BBQs on top. Connect with the Seine river and walk along the esplanade.

Stop 4, 12:30 PM: Drop off your goodies and then grab a terrace seat for a coffee, a glass of wine, or a light bite to eat.

Stop 5, 2 PM: Time to visit a park. If you’re on the right bank, I love Square du Temple for its various grassy spaces to picnic on, park benches, and even a pond with lots of ducks to watch. If you’re on the left bank, consider Square Gabriel Pierné, a lesser-known little park with benches that look like books and some of Paris’s prettiest cherry blossom trees for this time of the year.

Stop 6, 3:30 PM: A little sieste before dinner. Ahhhhh, this is the good life.

Today’s video: The girls and I had a lot of errands to do this weekend, and we walked all over the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 12th arrondissements. I hope you enjoy little moments from our weekend together.

Bisous, darlings et bon dimanche!
