Savannah embraces the Christmas magic!
05 Dec 2023
The festive season is always a time for joy, warmth and sharing, especially at Savannah Connected Countryside, where La Place de Gros Bois is immersed in a festive atmosphere for a magical month. Find out about all the upcoming events.
For some people, Christmas is a time for giving and receiving presents. For others, it is about spending quality time with the family or solidarity and generosity. Whatever your definition of Christmas is, you will be impressed by the line-up of events scheduled at La Place de Gros Bois! From activities for the entire family to resident-only or public events, these festivities hold the promise of an impressive end-of-year celebration.
Festive mood at La Place de Gros Bois
From 1 December 2023, La Place de Gros Bois will be decked out in its loveliest finery to kick off the countdown to Christmas! Festive decorations will immerse all residents and users in a magical atmosphere.
As much as we would like to get an early start every year, we often find ourselves with last-minute gifts to buy. The good news is that on Saturday 16 December, the Christmas Market at La Place de Gros Bois will host over 40 stallholders. Find everything you need to add a touch of magic to your table decorations, surprise and delight your loved ones – or yourself!
The “Noël Solidaire” is highly appreciated by residents of Savannah and will be repeated this year! This year the initiative is also supported by Savannah International School, which is inviting the pupils’ parents to sponsor gifts.
The principle remains unchanged: in addition to the traditional tinsel and pine cones, the big Christmas tree at La Place will be covered with paper baubles, each with the name and age of a needy local child. The aim is to delight these children with special gifts. The perfect way to bring to life the Christmas values of sharing, caring and solidarity!
In addition to activities open to everyone, some events are specially designed for our residents. These exclusive moments aim to strengthen bonds within the neighborhood, providing a unique and friendly experience.
This tournament organised for members of La Place de Gros Bois started in November 2023, bringing together players of all ages and fitness levels! The final will take place in early December.
A cinema session under the stars is a perfect way to bring the year to a beautiful close. For the occasion, “The Lion King” is a classic film that will delight the entire family! All Savannah residents and their guests are invited.
Lychee picking is back for the festive season! It is an excellent activity for a Saturday afternoon and young residents are invited to proceed to the Gros Bois orchards with their parents, filling up their bags with this delicious fruit that is popular during the end-of-year holiday season.
Santa Claus in Savannah
Christmas celebrations would be incomplete without Santa Claus himself! He will be back this year at La Place de Gros Bois to hand out presents to La Place de Gros Bois members’ children. An amazing experience!
We look forward to seeing you at La Place de Gros Bois for moments filled with laughter and fun.
