Hélène Chaussavoine

Christmas countdown is now in full swing and we are all getting ready to celebrate it. If you are spending a winter break in St Ives this December in one of our luxury St Ives apartments, we can recommend you a few lovely places to visit this weekend to enjoy the festivities.

Etsy Made Cornwall Christmas Fair

Only a 5 minutes walk from your 5 star self-catering apartment, the Etsy Christmas will start on Friday 30th November at the Guildhall where 40 Etsy sellers will gather to offer high quality products to help you finish (or maybe start) your Christmas presents. Expect live music and cocktails on Friday and a pop-up cafe on Saturday and Sunday.

Lantern Parade

The lantern parade will start at 5pm from Market Square on Saturday 1st December and this is a fantastic occasion to gather everyone in the family to admire the handmade lanterns made by children, adults but also businesses who wished to take part in the activities of the town.

Christmas Lights

St Ives town will also turn their Christmas Lights on this same day so make sure to grab your warmest coat and a glass of mulled wine and enjoy this festive occasion to officially start the countdown to Christmas.

Town Treasure Hunt

This weekend is also the start of 'Town Treasure Hunt' where children can participate to this interactive game taking place in the whole town. Whilst doing your christmas shopping in St Ives, look out for some words in different shops and simply report them to Cafe Art or St Ives Library. This fun game will run up until 2nd January so it is not too late to be part of it!

Falmouth Christmas Lights

On Thursday 29th November, the streets of Falmouth will be filled with the aroma of mulled wine, sparkles and festive food. The town will start celebrating at 5pm with Christmas songs and a parade and will finish by turning their lights on on the Moor at 7pm. Falmouth also has a variety of high quality restaurant so why not plan a festive evening down there before going back to the comfort of your luxury holiday apartment in St Ives?

Angarrack Christmas Lights

If you are a Christmas light lover, we strongly recommend you to visit Angarrack. Only a 20 minute drive away from you self-catering apartment in St Ives, Angarrack is most famous for its lights. This lovely village near Hayle awakens when Father Christmas is on its way. This is a time where all the villagers gather together and put extra efforts to make Angarrack sparkle. Walk through the 12 days of Christmas, discover the reindeers and imerse yourself in Christmas.
