Our B&B Christmas

December 20th, 2009 by Roger in Christmas, Groups

It could be a white Christmas in Le Luot this year. Snow fell through the night  leaving the village resembling a scene from an old fashioned Christmas card! The main road through the village, shown in the picture, saw even less traffic than usual, and the local children enjoyed an unexpected holiday.

Christmas is also a useful time for reflection. In many ways 2009 has been  difficult  with many English blaming the credit crunch and weak exchange rate for not crossing the Channel this year.  I managed to crash my car,  but far sadder was the loss of my lovely breton spaniel, Vicomte, who was killed on what is usually a very quiet road. If you have visited us here you will certainly always remember Vicomte.

Recovering from a shock like that is not easy but such is the quality of life out here  that each new day brings its rapid compensations and soon lifts the spirit.  The pace of life here is as you want it to be. The countryside is beautiful and restores the soul.  Old traditions and ways die hard and it is so refreshing to see families still enjoying being families. Normandy has a lot to offer and Christmas here delivers a very real message of peace and love.

La Merveille could be the  ideal place for you to spend Christmas with your family and friends. Why not join us here  next year?  We would love to hear from you.

From our B&B in Le Luot to the Christmas Market on the Champs-Elysees!

December 20th, 2009 by Roger in Christmas, Local News

It is by no means impossible during your Christmas stay at La Merveille to take time out for a day In Paris. With a fairly regular train service from Villedieu station you can be at Paris Montparnasse station before lunchtime. For the second year running there is a fabulous Christmas market on the Champs-Elysees, described as one of the most attractive festive events in Europe, and expected to attract 12 million visitors this year.

Christmas Shopping

Between the roundabout of the Champs-Elysees and the Place de la Concorde until December 28, some ninety  individual tents provide displays of  handicrafts  and local products – everything from  traditional Russian dolls to jewelry , and from tanners art to  Christmas decorations. You will also discover  festive tables of delicious food  with  Norwegian salmon, caviar, oysters, foie gras, meats, breads spices and chocolates.

Recreation & Games

Several restaurants offer sustenance and there  are many attractions  reserved for children  including a roundabout with wooden horses, a miniature train, a giant sledge and, of course,  the essential home of Father Christmas.

News 2009 

 A special Ice Magic  scene is the feature this year  in a refrigerated tent, with  the main monuments and buildings of Paris displayed  in ice and snow. This year  a tribute is also paid to  musicians in a  space called the Gypsy Camp. Here every night  guitarists, including Thomas Dutronc, David Reinhardt and  the Gypsy Angelo Debarre  will play.

 The avenue of the Champ-Elysees will be decorated and full of Christmas lights. Somewhere else that becomes a must  to visit if you  make it here next year!
