Bob worked all night: he'll sleep from 9 am to 6 pm. What expression can one employ to wish him a "bonne nuit" right before he goes to sleep? "Bonne nuit" sounds a bit strange when said in the morning, and I wonder whether there exists a more appropriate expression.

    Something like "dors bien", maybe? Apr 26, 2021 at 14:07

    Side note, Bonne nuit can still be used in a funny way, especially with someone you know well.

1 Answer 1


You can wish someone a good [night's] sleep with « Beaux rêves » or « Fais de beaux rêves » for "sweet dreams" or « Dors bien » as mentioned in a comment by @spaghettibaguetti.

    Yes, the complete expression is "Fais de beaux rêves".
