Galeries Lafayette’s Christmas windows, Saint Nicholas Festival in Nancy and inland adventures in Tahiti

  • by


December can be very warm and festive, with dozens of ways to take advantage of the holidays.
The city of Nancy, all lit up for the occasion, is celebrating Saint-Nicholas with acrobats and musicians, while in Paris the Galeries Lafayette are already displaying their Christmas windows, as always filled with wonder and invention. For insight on how the stars work, the exhibit on French monuments in cinema allows you to explore the behind-the-scenes of film.
Need some pampering? Vichy offers the perfect glamourous weekend getaway for ladies. Should you wish to add a dash of sunshine to your festivities, choose Martinique, dubbed the « Island of flowers », explore inland Polynesia’s gorgeous landscapes or relax at the newly-renovated Bwa Chik Hotel & Golf in St-Francois, Guadeloupe.
For a 2011 full of pleasant discoveries, prepare your next gourmet escapade to Provence with Planet France or book a very romantic Valentine’s Day in Paris with Air Canada.
