Christmas Markets in the South of France

This is such a lovely time of the year in the South of France, the days are crisp, the skies are blue and there are wonderful Christmas markets to explore.

Cannes Christmas Market - on the port in Cannes, the aromas of Christmas spices waft through the array of stalls selling everything from hand made leather goods to locally produced wines and champagnes.

Monaco Christmas Market - Another 'must visit' at this time of year and with all the fun of the fair for the children.

Aix en Provence - In the centre of town on the Cours Mirabeau, this is a very Provencal Christmas market with all the delights of Pain d'Epices and locally made nougat for sale.

Christmas markets and villages pop up throughout the South of France at this time of year and it's well worth checking with local tourist offices if you are visiting to ensure that you don't miss out on this most wonderful of traditions.
