The Champ de Mars Christmas Village: a rendezvous for gourmets
Published on 15 November 2021 in Visit Paris
The Village de Noël du Champ de Mars is a Christmas market with two features that make it very special. One is that it takes place in an absolutely exceptional setting and the other is that it’s almost entirely devoted to gastronomy. Those two reasons are more than enough for your Platine Hotel team to warmly recommend it to you!
At the foot of the Eiffel Tower
The Champ de Mars Christmas Village and its wooden chalets are set up every year right at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. The vast lawns and the views stretching from the quays of the Seine to the beautiful facades of the Ecole Militaire form a magnificent showcase. The spectacle is as exquisite from the aisles of the market as it is from the terraces of the Trocadéro on the other side of the Seine. At nightfall, the brilliance of the decorations mingles with the light from the illuminations adorning the mighty flanks of the Iron Lady, creating an enchantment of light. And what’s more, it will only take you about 15 minutes to get there on foot from the Platine Hotel!
Gastronomy in the spotlight
As you approach the market’s picturesque little chalets, you’ll be tempted by the alluring aromas wafting from them. With your taste buds awakening, you’ll browse regional stalls offering authentic produce and recipes from Savoy, Alsace, the Basque Country and even Brittany. You’ll be unable to resist a little tasting on the go while picturing your festive table filled with these delicious products. Take the time to chat with the passionate artisans and producers who keep local traditions alive.
Less than twenty minutes from your Platine Hotel, the Champs de Mars Christmas Village will immerse you in the festive atmosphere. It’s a unique setting hosting artisans selected for the quality of their products, so come along and get into the Christmas spirit!
