1- CHRISTMAS MARKETS TO TREAT YOURSELF (AND OTHERS)
While the East of France is traditionally the place to go for Christmas markets, the South isn’t left out – certainly not!
Here, little chalets rub shoulders with fir trees and palms for a gourmet festive shopping experience! The stalls are overflowing with hand-crafted creations, local products and unique gift ideas. Each market has its own unique atmosphere, rooted in local tradition, offering visitors an immersive experience at the heart of the magic of Christmas.
In Cannes, the market and ice rink await on Allées de la Liberté, very close to the funfair on Esplanade Pantiero.
In Nice, the Christmas village welcomes young and old alike in the Albert 1er garden under the big wheel.
In Antibes, carousel, workshops and gourmet cabins can be found on Place de-Gaulle and Place Nationale, and on the main esplanade of Pré-aux-Pêcheurs.
In Monaco, the village is celebrating the centenary of Prince Rainier III, while in Menton, it’s “Christmas in the countryside” at the Bastion mall.
In Grasse, exhibitors are setting up on Honoré-Cresp Avenue on 16 and 17 December only.
In Saint-Raphaël, the traditional Christmas market takes place on the seafront.
