Christmas is Coming

Yes, it’s getting towards that time of year again and whether you’re Crimbo crazy or suitably Scrooge, a nice cup of vin chaud never goes amiss! Plus, supporting local businesses is more important than ever!

Villages de Noël

Christmas trees, snow-topped chalets, great food and drink… the region boasts some truly magical Christmas villages. Whether you’re shopping, tasting or visiting Santa, the villages de Noël are the perfect idea for some festive family fun.

Le Barcarès, 25th November – 8th January

One of the biggest, brightest and most festive villages de Noël in the south of France! Held in the vast Jardins du Lydia from late November through to mid-January, the market welcomes over 1.5 million visitors! Shows, parades, entertainment, it’s a sure-fire spectacle but be warned, over 11s have to pay to get in (2-5€).

Perpignan Christmas Market

Perpignan, 26th November – 8th January

The historic Quai Vauban undergoes a complete Christmas make-over with twinkling lights, a giant ferris wheel and of course, the quaint Christmas market.

The traditional wooden chalets sell a range of festive and artisan products including hot wine and churros. Why not tie it in with a visit to les Halles?

There’s also a fun fair in Place Catalogne (in front of the old Fnac building), donkey rides in Place Gambetta and over the Christmas weekend, and various festive entertainment through the other squares and streets.
