A lovely small Christmas market at a château that was built in 1631!
Here is a short video to see what it’s like!
There are few stalls with handmade things, but you don’t go for that…
You go for the atmosphere! Everyone is very friendly and you can have a hot chocolate by a fire pit – that’s what’s worth going there for!
We had such a wonderful time!
The DJ was great too, good to hear something different at a Christmas market rather than Jingle bells
PS: Highly recommend the burger!
