For a short break during the festive season why not treat yourself to a unique Christmas shopping experience on one of our French Christmas Market holidays? Escape the hectic UK shopping centres and the cold, dreary high-streets and head for France to experience traditionally festive market stalls brimming with seasonal gifts and handmade crafts.
The brilliantly coloured wooden cabins sparkle with fairy lights and the smell of traditional French gastronomy and mulled wine fills the air around the town squares where the French Christmas Markets are situated.
From regional delicacies such as cheese, jams, foie gras and escargot, to handmade gifts including Christmas decorations, children's toys and unusual ornaments, you will soon discover that special treat for someone back home. Temperatures may sometimes fall below zero so wrap up warm, pick up a glass of mulled wine and surrender to the festive spirit.
Great Rail Journeys provides a stress-free means of getting to the Christmas Markets in France by arranging all the travel and accommodation for you. Your specially trained Tour Manager will meet you at the station and be available throughout the duration of your trip should you need any assistance. If you prefer to do things more independently, your Tour Manager will be happy to leave you to your own devices so you can enjoy your holiday as you wish.
