Marché de Noel
For anyone traveling to France in December the one thing that you must see is a Christmas market they are pure delight. Our first visit to the Christmas market in Sarlat was in 2010 (the year that we signed for our property). Every street was lined with ‘real’ Christmas trees decorated with large red bows and glistening with lighting it was magical.
The Christmas village in Sarlat starts at the beginning of December for three weeks, consisting of forty two wooden chalets which are set around the medieval city and the car park. With stall after stall selling macaroons, chesses, nougats, clothes, toys, art and crafts, winter hats and gloves and my favorite mulled wine or beer to warm the shoppers on a cold day or night. There is also an ice rink, a toy library, circus performances, music and of course plenty of lights and Father Christmas. In short something for everyone.
This stall is selling candy to decorate the Christmas tree
All of the trees in the car park are decorated, truly a magical sight for the skaters below.
Under a canopy of light you can shop around for that extra special something.
I love this stall full of sweaters, scarves, hats, gloves, handbags and belts.
