Christmas in France

France Guide the official French Government tourist information website has just launched a Christmas in France section with a number of new seasonal sections. As well as the obligatory discussion of French yule-time cooking (including how to make a Chocolate Yule Log) there's details of French Christmas markets including two near our Gite in Brittany at St Brieuc and Rennes.

And to keep you in the festive spirit there's a French Advent Calendar.

According to the email I received there's loads of prizes to win including:
   * Return tickets to France
   * One week-stay in a ski resort in the French Alps
   * City breaks in a 4-star hotel in Nice in the French Riviera
   * A 2-night stay in a deluxe room at the Hilton Evian-les-Bains
   * One holiday in a 4-star hotel in the Caribbean
   * One Ch√Ęteau experience in Normandy
   * A short break in a 4-star spa hotel in Vichy
   * Hamper bags with French delicacies
   * Free subscriptions to a British TV channel dedicated to French Films

... but I as at right now (at 1pm on the 1st December) it doesn't seem to be open yet!

If you fancy a break away from it all in front of a roaring wood fire (and we'll even throw in the Christmas tree and decorations as well), then drop us a line as we've still got free holiday dates for both Christmas 2009 and New Year 2010.

Happy new year and all that !

Postscript update, 11:30pm, 1st December: FranceGuide seem to have sorted their advent calendar out now and you can click through on the first of the advent buttons (number '1') to try to win a 2 night complimentary stay for 2 people in the 4-star NH Nice hotel.
