It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in France🎄we’re getting in the mood and have already put up our Christmas lights at the house ready for the season…. even the small villages decorate their streets in lights and host various festivities.

Throughout the region of Charente Maritime, there are some truly wonderful Christmas fairs – Le chateau de crazannes (40 mins from us) is one of our favourites… “artisans de Noel” with its many market stalls selling Yuletide wines, cheeses, gifts and, cakes. We enjoy a “vin chaud “ or a “biere Noel” after browsing and before entering the village chateau, which is always decked out beautifully for Christmas, inside and out, lit up with millions of lights and stunning decorations! It is such a perfect way to start the celebrations.

Please contact us if you fancy extending your Christmas market visits across the channel. We’re offering December discounts at the moment. Email us for details.
