Winter tours – Christmas magic!

Marvel at the magic of Christmas in Paris with your French learners next winter! Traditional Christmas markets in France are part of its history and Christmas wouldn't be the same without the wooden chalets, local produce and festive gifts - it’s truly an experience not to be missed!

See the Eiffel Tower lit up like a Christmas tree and follow your day’s activities with an evening in Paris. After all that excitement, it’s good to know you can rely on being able to relax in our comfortable Château de Grande Romaine and enjoy a warm welcome from our centre team.

Activities

Seasonal Excursions
Your excursion programme includes a visit to a Christmas market with a PGL guide to help ensure you get the best from the experience. It’s also a great opportunity to visit Disneyland Paris and enjoy the unique seasonal entertainment there, alongside all the other popular attractions. There are further seasonal activities such as theatre visits and the sights of Paris with a seasonal twist, including the Eiffel Tower lit up like a Christmas tree!

Adventure: The PGL Bonus
If you have time, why not try out one of our unique PGL adventure sessions? They’re a great opportunity for some teambuilding and will complement your off-site adventures perfectly.

An Evening Programme
Themed evening activities (such as making crêpes) are the finishing touch to your winter tour and cultural experience.
