Christmas markets

Christmas markets 2

We have a very clear bespoke philosophy, explained here which fully outlines our commitment to you when planning your trip to the beautiful Christmas Markets of France and Belgium. When creating your bespoke Christmas market experience why not add a visit to one of the many weekly markets and rub shoulders with the locals as they shop, for that special unique gift you may wish to visit a Depot Vente with their vast range of second hand and antique furniture, pottery, glasswear and much, much more. Guests have added a variety of things to their bespoke Christmas market tours, some have visited a relative buried in a local World War 1 cemetery, taken in a French first division football match or just kicked back and enjoyed the leisurely pace of French life.

You can rest assured that we will make your tour a trip to remember.

This tour was for a group of four ladies who wanted to complete their Christmas shopping, enjoy some girly time and shop until they dropped.

They achieved all of their objectives and lots, lots more.

Day 1 - Wednesday

The ladies were collected from Paris CDG airport and taken into the centre of Paris.

The day was spent visiting the sights, shops, restaurants and more shops, finishing with the stunning views over Paris from Montmartre where the ladies had dinner.

Day 2 - Thursday

For the second day of eating, drinking, sightseeing and lots of shopping we headed north, the first part of our day was spent in the beautiful city of Arras, the capital of the Pas-de-Calais department in Northern France, where the ladies had time for a little retail therapy and lunch.

The latter part of the day and evening were spent in Lille with its wide variety of shops and a bustling Christmas market.

Day 3 - Friday

After breakfast we headed to Amiens with its world heritage sites, Christmas market, restaurants and of course, shops.

The ladies spent the day enjoying the delights of Amiens before returning to Paris CDG airport for their early evening flight home.
