Spending Christmas in the South of France by the seaside is magical even without snow. The Christmas spirit also prevails in Hérault: decorations and illuminations, roasted chestnuts and mulled wines, Christmas markets – there is much to do and discover. In this article, you'll find the must-visit Christmas markets in the region.
In Cap d'Agde, the Christmas market comes to the port. The setting is breathtaking, with a striking contrast. You'll have a view of the Ferris wheel, Christmas chalets, boats, and the sea. It's a great place to stroll, shop, and enjoy a glass of mulled wine. Many activities are waiting for you, including a mini-farm, ice rink, and, of course, the chance to meet Santa Claus if you've been good!
In Marseillan, take a walk through the village of Santa Claus in the heart of the city center. The decorations and chalets will transport you to the North Pole with some added sunshine! You can visit Santa's house and take part in numerous activities with the children. You'll find many holiday products and local products. We highly recommend it!
Every year, Montpellier sets up its traditional illuminated world map on Comédie Square. Nearby, on the esplanade, the Christmas market also takes place during the holiday season. With its many chalets and various products, it's the ideal place to finish your Christmas shopping and enjoy hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts.
