fabric.com has quite a few. I'm pretty sure they ship internationally, but it probably be pretty expensive.

If you have Joann's near you check out their selection, they actually have a whole section of plaids at my Joanns. You can also check out their website:

Try using the key words 'Buffalo Check' instead of plaid.  The prints with the big color blocks are sometimes called that instead of plaid.

I'm going to second on Joanne's. I went to one last week and they had at least 30 different plaids in flannels, tweeds and some basic cotton prints. I don't know if they have any stores in France but their shipping prices are reasonable.

I was looking for a plaid to use for my one-year-old grandaughter's Christmas dress and had an awful time finding a good plaid for it, one without metalic threads in it.  Joann's had large plaids of all kinds but not a neat small one.  Finally I sent my husband to a large fabric store he passes on business trips, complete with a note to the salesperson saying what I wanted.  She found a nice cotton/poly plaid for me.  It was the only one they had of that type.  Dress came out just fine!!
Maybe small plaids are out this year??   Try Joann's though.
