Once upon a time at Château de Saint-Martin: it was Christmas!
The Gros Souper de Noël is a festive supper that celebrates Provençal Christmas gastronomy combined with the character and elegance of the Château’s wines.
The increasingly popular initiative is celebrating its 18th anniversary this year.
In Provence, even more than elsewhere, the Christmas holidays are rich and complex. From one generation to the next, the rituals have been handed down and embellished from one village to another with variations on the theme depending on local resources.
Château de Saint-Martin, packed with history and its existence for the past 2200 years, knows how to make those traditions enjoyable and live on in both a festive atmosphere and original 18th century setting, whether you’re a Provençal native, just love the region or have adopted it as home.
Every year, our Big Christmas Supper gives visitors the opportunity to discover a different local chef who has to use his or her imagination AND comply with a list of imposed dishes. The chefs, chosen for their culinary talents, must also share our Commitments and our Art-de-Vivre!
The supper: 7 “lean” dishes, 7 wines and 13 desserts
An aperitif and a dinner with live music!
Tambourines and galoubets (three-hole pipes), operettas or world music, music is featured at every Big Christmas Supper!
