In the run up to Christmas, the beautiful French village of Valbonne holds a large Christmas market in the Place des Arcades. This lovely square is transformed into an Alpine scene complete with over one hundred stalls run by local food producers, artists and artisans.
Valbonne Christmas market France
Valbonne's Christmas market features a range of food products from cheese, to tapenades, foie gras and honey. You will also find a good range of local crafts for holiday season gifts and whilst the children will enjoy the carousels and fireworks, magic shows and a small petting zoo.
Although you will find larger Christmas markets in South France (such as Nice, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence), I think that it is the charming architecture of the main square in Valbonne which makes it such a charming French Christmas market to visit.
