The 2023 La Rochelle Christmas Market

Experience the magic of Christmas near La Garenne Saint Germain

Want to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the festive season? Then head to La Rochelle!

You won't find a Christmas market as such, but several events where you can find great ideas for Christmas gifts and entertainment.

Check out the full programme of Christmas events in La Rochelle below!

🎁 Where to find Christmas gift ideas?

Le Cours des Artisans
Head to La Rochelle's artisan market to unearth lots of gift ideas that are both original and unique... all in a unique setting, overlooking the city's harbour and under the Christmas lights.

Bonus idea: give the gift of a night in an unusual accommodation ✨
Looking for the perfect gift? Give the gift of a romantic night or a family weekend in Charente-Maritime in the heart of nature!

Nestled in the grounds of the Garenne Saint Germain estate, the A-tipi-que and the Roulotte offer moments of total disconnection, while enjoying all the comforts you need: electricity, running water, shower room or even heating.

An original gift idea that's sure to create unforgettable moments.
