Enjoy the magic of Christmas in Provence, during the month of December....
The end of the year celebrations are approaching and with them, all the traditional atmosphere that we like to find. The Christmas decorations, the nativity scene and the santons, so dear to our beautiful Provence, and then the Christmas markets
