Holiday magic in the Parisian Countryside
Thursday 11, November 2010
Seine-et-Marne is home to some of France’s best attractions including the Chateaux of Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte, Disneyland Paris, beautiful forests, gardens and medieval towns. And all of them are getting festive this winter.
With direct trains from London and fantastic transport links to central Paris, Seine-et-Marne has much to offer this Christmas, although there’s so much going on, you won’t even have time to visit Paris!
Attractions include Christmas markets, enchanted castles, and snow every day on Disneyland’s Main Street USA!
Internationally renowned artist Slava Polunin performs his famous “Snowshow” in Crécy-la-Chapelle and the Galleria Continua, one of the biggest contemporary art galleries in the world, welcomes jugglers and illusionists.
No need for New Year’s Eve to be a flat one. Ring in the New Year in the hangars of an air base with musical performances and circus attractions.
And on top of all this, stay longer for free. From now until the end of March, many hotels in Seine-et-Marne are offering an extra night free of charge at weekends.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
