After-Holiday Sale, New Years at Estoublon

Holiday decor is now 50% off and clothing is discounted 30% at the Christmas Market at the Chateau d’Estoublon, a magnificent 16th-century estate near Fontvieille where wines and olive oils are produced. This is the one market my friends and I never miss; each year the selection of food, decor, toys and tableware grows more elegant, eclectic and whimsical too. The items for sale come from all over the world and the displays are magnificent. On the grounds are an antique carousel, a beautiful little chapel, exquisite holiday lighting and more.  The Christmas market runs until Thursday Dec. 30th and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Meanwhile Estoublon’s wine bar/restaurant Mogador, with its vaulted ceilings, huge fireplace and consulting Michelin-starred chef Eric Sapet, will be serving lunch and dinner throughout the holidays, with a special Saint-Sylvestre menu offered on New Years Eve. The evening (80€ per person without wine, 110€ with)  includes music and dancing until 3 a.m. Check the site here for menus, prices and more.

  3. Also at Chateau Est, don't miss 'le Petit Fousse,' in their gypsy caravan with live song and story for children ages 3-8 years from 15H every day until Thursday.
    Nancy is dressed as a lovely fairy and reads a story while Pascale provides music.
