30 minutes from Annecy, there is a magical place for young children, it is the home of Father Christmas, the place where the old man with the white beard lives.
Over 1,200 m², children will discover a world decorated with magnificent Christmas decorations. Knowing what Santa does every day is a privilege, you will visit his kitchen, his room, his toy-making workshop.
A little further on, it’s the domain of his twin brother, Père Fouettard, who is much nicer than his name suggests. Then it’s the world of one of the Mothers Claus, to discover a thatched cottage full of femininity. Finally, the last of the gang, the Sandman, who has prepared the attic for Father Christmas with the “totottes” (the familiar name for the dummy).
This visit is truly magical, and you can eat at the crêperie and buy a souvenir at the Santa’s hamlet shop.
