Discover our activities 

For the sixth year running, the village of Montbazon welcomes Santa Claus and his merry band of elves to the fortress! Santa is waiting in his chalet for young and old alike to celebrate the festive season! 


At the heart of the event, Santa invites you to take part in creative workshops where you can make your own baubles and wreaths to decorate your home.

The village comes alive with a skating rink, enchanting tales and magic, breathtaking juggling and fairy-tale make-up... You won't know where to turn! Maybe because the merry-go-round in the heart of the fortress will have you spinning! 


As last year, talented artisans will be exhibiting their creations throughout our opening period.

And of course, treat yourself to Santa's Village! Let yourself be tempted by delicious wines and hot chocolates, savor succulent fouées, gourmet crepes, exquisite confections and many other delicacies that will delight your taste buds. 

Don't forget to visit Santa Claus in his cosy chalet, and take the opportunity to hand him your letter of best wishes!
