Some do, some don't. You'd often get a row of machines, where only the 
one at the end accepts notes. In theory, "information" might be kind 
enough to break your note into coins, but:

    * I have never tried this
    * The common notion is that French don't like to help English
      speaking foreigners. I should add right now that my personal
      experience from over 15 years that my sister lives in France, and
      therefor having had multiple visits here, is 100% contradicting to
      this notion. Ask a random person on the street for help in a
      polite and quite manner, and they'll do their very best to help
      you, language barriers not withstanding.
