It’s that magical time of year. Snow is falling, fires are blazing and Santa Clause is at the mall. Okay, maybe not in the South of France, but Christmas is definitely in the air. We have chilly mornings, hot chocolate, Christmas lights strung throughout the town and Père Noël peeking out of storefront windows.
What better place to celebrate the holiday season than on the French Riviera at the Village de Noël or Christmas Village in Nice, France! Experience the delight of handcrafted gifts, delicious food and play area for kids and kids at heart while visiting Nice over the holiday’s.

The fun starts in Place Massena, where you can’t miss the towering Ferris Wheel (Grande Roue). The large skating rink (patinoire) beckons beginners and experienced skaters for five daily sessions of 1.5 hours each. Find a Christmas tree bucket ride, food and wine chalets with seating area and a decorated area with a ski lift seat for a cute photo opportunity.
