On the occasion of Christmas, this new event offers you a moment of conviviality and sharing around our producers, creators and craftsmen.

Sheltered from the winter coolness, the abbey of Aulps welcomes a market of artists and craftsmen in the heart of its exhibition gallery. An opportunity to discover new skills. Among us will be cabinetmakers, potters, plastic artists, sculptors, ceramists, painters, woodworkers, cutlers, candle makers, crystal makers and jewelers. All of them are eager to transport you into their Christmas magic!
Finally, an assortment of books about the magic of Christmas selected by a bookseller awaits young and old.

In the heart of the dairy, some of our local producers are proudly represented. Cheeses, beers, liqueurs, chocolates, foie gras and other winter flavors are available on the stalls. Benefit from quality products accompanied by the advice of their producers!
For the gourmets, taste the Savoyard bricelets, a recipe well kept by the mountain pasture of Mévonne!
Also guided by the enticing smell of spices, you will find hot wines, apple juice, and bowl of soup at the Taverne de la Croix Blanche.

Don't miss the opportunity to bring back a bit of Alpine know-how for your Christmas tree!
