The Christmas trees are now up in front of the château of Nyon and the Christmas market will be soon be in town (13-24 December) – more details of the market coming up.
Over the next few weeks, Living in Nyon will be suggesting Christmas gifts that can be sourced from in and around Nyon or from further afield.
This first suggestion would make a great little stocking filler for those who love hiking in the Alps.
