Christmas in Saint Remy de Provence
Here are some photos from last year’s Christmas market to get you into the mood for this weekend.
Dec 15-17, 2017
St Remy de Provence’s weekend-long Christmas market will be this weekend! The stalls will set up in front of the Marie (town hall) where you’ll find boudin blanc, fougasse, quality wheels of mountain cheese, honey, pain d’épice, champagne, artisans and even the guy who comes every year to roast chestnuts!
A Chic and a Rustic Market at Once
Hotel Gounod, located in the corner of Place de la République, is also offering its own Christmas market. There you’ll find a few gastronomy stands (Japanese confections, Chateau Estoublon‘s olive oil, and Jouvaud patisseries) as well as many unique “créateurs” from all over the South of France that recycle vintage items, and create their own.
These ceramic works are by local artist Guillermo García Varona who also creates Portuguese-style panels made of hand-painted blue and white tiles.
Hotel Gounod – Chic and Cozy
Between visiting market stands, sip on a glass of wine in Hotel Gounod’s bar that was recently renovated into this cosy and chic space.
I fell in love with everything created by Aurelia at Edition Ephémère! I managed to amazingly only buy one thing- but there is always tomorrow…
Both Hotel Gounod and the main Saint Remy Christmas market open around 10 am to 6pm. Enjoy!
