Montecasino Christmas Village

Treat yourself at Montecasino this Christmas (3)(1)

I spent my first white Christmas in Germany back in 1995, and it was truly magical. My first snow experience was at midnight in the grounds of a castle in Detmold, Germany. I also loved the Christmas markets in the town square and the smell of all those yuletide goodies to eat and drink.

Now, you too can experience a bit of this with the first-ever Montecasino Christmas Village, which takes place from 3 to 7 December 2014.

Modeled in the style of a European Christmas market, this event features Christmas inspiration a plenty, including cakes, homemade decorations, hot roasted nuts and more.

You can also enjoy Christmas movie screenings on the huge Outdoor Piazza screen from Wednesday 3 December to Friday 5 December at 18:00 and on Sunday 7 December at 15:00. To get you in the festive spirit, don’t miss the Mzansi Youth Choir Christmas carols concert on Saturday 6 December at 18:00.
