A jolly trio of properties near festive markets

We all love a Christmas market! Hardly surprisingly that the French – who could be said to do the markets better than anyone else, offer some of the finest. They are great places to browse with a vin chaud and pick up handmade gifts or festive delicacies. Here are three homes to warm the heart near great markets…

This elegant two-bed apartment is located near Paris’s l’Etoile – ideal for not just markets but shops, theatres, restaurants and museums. Location doesn’t get much better!



Located on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, this is a great little one-bed apartment with sea views that’s ready to go (so no Christmas shopping time wasted)


You can’t get much more Christmassy than a cosy Alpine chalet and this modern four-bed example in the family-friendly resort of La Clusaz is now a great price.
