Around the fireplace… Holiday Traditions

Until January 8, 2017

This Holiday season, five of the Château Ramezay’s fireplaces will be sumptuously decorated according to a particular theme. Each mantelpiece will explain the origin of a specific Christmas tradition: Christmas cards, Christmas stockings, advent calendars and more – it’ll be well worth gathering around the fireside!
