From December 15 to 17, the open-air Cotton Tree Terrace transforms into a marketplace where you can find an array of French gourmet food, baked goods and wine, festive decor, pottery and art, customised jewellery, and skincare. With brands like Jardin Europèen, Alcohood, Maison Argaud, and The Hubble Studio, there’s no better place to pick out the perfect Christmas gifts for your loved ones.
