The Magic of Christmas

From 18th to 26th December, come and enjoy a week entirely dedicated to children… it’s the Magic of Christmas in the Val d’Arly!

Letter to Santa Claus

Thomas: My name is Thomas and I am 7 years old. This year I’ve been so good that my parents can’t believe it!
Okay, I haven’t always been very nice to my little sister but she can be annoying when she takes my toys…

I imagine you and your elves are very busy but this year I have a very special request, I would like to spend Christmas in the snow.

I would like to take my Mum and Dad on vacation to the mountains for a magical week’s holiday. …Well…okay, I suppose my little sister can come too…

Father Christmas: Come to the Val d’Arly!!

Our ideas for a magical Christmas

Thomas: I’d like to see you arrive on your sledge amidst the night-time fireflies.

Father Christmas: You can come and meet me on Friday 24th December in the 4 resort villages of the Val d’Arly.
On a horse-drawn carriage, behind a dog sled or on skis, you’ll see, I’ll have plenty of surprises in store for you and your little sister, amidst the lights of the torchlight descents and lantern parades.

Father Christmas: You can also tell your parents that if they need to do some last minute Christmas shopping (decorations, regional products…) they can go to the Christmas Markets that will be held in all the villages of Val d’Arly.

Our Christmas markets

Thomas: I would love to see a really magical Christmas show!

Father Christmas: Oh, welAjouter un blocl, you mustn’t miss the Christmas shows in the villages of the Val d’Arly! There are also shows with snacks with Opoual, the friendly Yeti. Follow the Yeti Opoual at snack time, he will need you to help a snowman who is melting in the sun. You will be able to use animals and sustainable energy to save him.

Father Christmas: You can also take your parents to the Cooperative Fruitière du Val d’Arly, where you will discover a real Christmas fairytale in the cinema room.

A fabulous journey through the Val d’Arly, just like at the cinema:

Thomas: If you help me take my whole family to the snow for Christmas, maybe I can go dog sledding?

Father Christmas: Of course Thomas! Fred and Benjamin can take you on a dog sledding adventure in Notre Dame de Bellecombe or in La Giettaz en Aravis.

You can even learn how to drive a sled and look after the dogs.

But be careful, for these activities, your parents need to book a long time in advance!

Thomas: Thanks a lot, Father Christmas!

Live these magical moments with your children because this is where memories are made…
