The holidays are a special time to travel with family, your loved-one or to meet up with friends. This  e-news is an invitation to discover all the magic of Christmas in France: in Paris, the store windows and the Champs Elysees, the most beautiful avenue in the world, are all aglow. Let yourself get seduced by the regional traditions: in Rhône-Alpes by the famous Grenoble’s Christmas market, or in Lorraine with the many spiced breads. Enjoy the enchanting vision of the lights in Saint-Martin or Noumea, capital of New Caledonia. For an exceptional holiday why not spend Christmas closer to home, under the Guadeloupe sun?

Make sure you don’t miss our sections dedicated to contests and good deals  and ideas, as well as offers from our partners.

The entire ATOUT France team wishes you a very happy holiday season, and may 2010 be filled with joy and travels.
