Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

Le Hameau du Père Noël (inside)

Once our noses were good & cold, we headed inside Santa's digs.

We were greeted by this pretty crèche: 
Then we headed into la cuisine du Père Noël:
There were a lot of dishes waiting to be washed:
And the Christmas turkey was already in the oven:
Santa's "diet" seemed to involve a lot of melted cheese...
The table was set but there was no sign of le Père Noël anywhere...
Next up was the elves' dining room:
The workshop:
And Santa's office (but still no sign of the jolly old elf...):
How great is the red & white bathtub?
Meanwhile, in the infirmary...
... a reindeer had gone on a bit of a binge:
I especially liked the control room with all the maps & globes:

The magnifying glass was focussed on Annecy:
 We were almost at the end of our visit.
And then we finally saw Santa.

Well, sort of.
