Christmas shopping

This year, why not give your Christmas gifts a more local flavour? Our favourite place for Christmas shopping is the Village du Bois in Clairvaux-les-Lacs. Do you remember the alley where Harry Potter buys his Hogwart supplies? You'll almost think you're there when you step inside this concept store. A whole 20-metre indoor street lined with shops in a decor of wood. Bliss!

You'll also find other gift ideas in our article on the "Made in Montagnes du Jura" brand.

Choosing your resort

Christmas in the mountains

There's nothing more unique than a mountain village that sparkles through the winter nights, the atmosphere of a village resort, an evening by the fire with a delicious fondue, or an action-packed day in the snow.

When you spend your Christmas holiday in the mountains, you can be sure the whole family will enjoy magical moments.
