Christmas in Paris – Fairs, markets, etc – Truely the City of Lights

Published on November 20, 2016 by Ralph and Karen

11/20/2016

Christmas in Paris and the New Year is always a magical time. The city of lights is truly lit up with magnificent light displays along the Champs Elysee and many other streets until after New year. Then there are the displays in the big stores of which the Galleries Lafayette is a delight for both children and adults. This year the theme is an Artic Christmas. The window displays along the Blvd Haussmann tell the story of a family of polar bears playing on an ice pack before making their way back to the North Pole. See “Galeries-Lafayette”

Christmas markets abound, with about a dozen spread over the city. They range from a mega-market in La Defense to a small market in Montmarte. All along the Champs-Elysées are dozens of stalls selling Christmas trinkets and food AND ‘vin chaud’ to warm you up.

Hello! We are Ralph and Karen, an Anglo-American couple who fell in love with Paris and France over 20 years ago. Work-related trips brought us here, but we kept coming back for holidays, then extended visits, and then… In 2005, we decided nothing was stopping us from buying a place of our own in Paris. Lots of research, learning, and many kilometers of sneaker-rubber later, we put our house in the United States on the market. It sold in 10 days, and we found our apartment in Montmartre two months later. After a massive, year-long renovation project and its many challenges, we hit our biggest bump yet. As it turned out, we had to stay based in the US after all. Our lovingly remodeled apartment in Paris became a place where we returned only for short visits. In 2008, we started renting to guests—travelers like we once were (we always preferred apartments over expensive, cramped hotels). And the rest, as they say, is history. Le Trésor de Montmartre has proved quite popular, to the extent that we have trouble finding a break in the booking calendar to stay there ourselves! In the midst of this, we found Nice. After several holidays in and around Nice, we thought, why not buy a pied-à-terre in the area? Despite the challenges involved in renovating from afar—which we knew very well at that point—we jumped in again in late 2010. After another renovation, another year, and hundreds more gray hairs between us, we added Le Trésor de Nice to our rental portfolio. A year so so later we picked up 3 other apartment to manage. We hope you find the properties inviting, and hope even more that you will come see them for yourselves! Please get in touch with questions, or to book your stay at one of our apartments. We’d be happy to share our insider knowledge of these places we love so much.
