When we existed the Le Grand Réfectoire we were surprised to see ballerinas and danseurs (male ballet dancers) dressed outside the restaurant. It was like a Flashmob but European style… ballet!
Everyone was delighted when they started dancing. It was so fun! I’m happy we got to see it and that DiploBaby enjoyed.
Loved the fantastic Christmas decor around the square. There were also booths with super cool artisanal products.
Of course, there are Alpine details like cable cars and ski lifts to sit on.
DiploBaby is obsessed with Nutcrackers so he was happy to see ones that were bigger than him. LOL!
I’m a sucker for historical details like this water fountain. I wonder if it’s where they gave water to horses in the past? This whole massive complex used to be a hospital.
This booth stood out to me because they are 100% plant-based using perfumes from Grasse and when you finish the candle you get a miniature porcelain. Cute Christmas gift idea right???
The perfume industry in Grasse has always been the flagship of the perfume market in the world, Grasse is the world capital of perfume. It is in Grasse in the Alpes Maritimes (06) that the vast majority of the most famous perfumes that we know, that we wear and that have made the fame and success of the greatest fashion, couture and major prestigious brands. Les Parfums de Grasse is a mirror of this success with their passion and know-how.– Les Parfums de Grasse
It’s not for me of course because I can’t do chemical fragrances but it was such a nice gift for our landlord and landlady.
THE SHOPS & MALL
It was so cool walking around and peeking into shops and finally finding a toilet inside the Cour du Midi department store. What a fabulous mall.
Even if you don’t want to shop, but you just want to explore a really well-kept historical structure that used to be a hospital…I recommend going to Grand Hôtel-Dieu. But here are the stores & restaurants that they have.
