Family holidays to visit the nativity scenes of Provence
Provence is a magical place to celebrate Christmas. By booking a holiday rental in one of the French Riviera destinations you will be able to experience authentic traditions.
In Nice, Menton or Cannes, celebrations begin on December 4th with the celebration of Sainte-Barbe. The small seeds are to be germinated in 3 separate containers. The plantations thus obtained will then be used to decorate the nativity scene.
Throughout the period from Advent to Candlemas, every village on the French Riviera is illuminated with Provençal traditions: nursery courses, santons markets, midnight masses, and the big dinner and the 13 desserts.
