“food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

A nice place to stay (our hotel was on the square) and lots of food options from slightly upscale to more bar and café like. There were also numerous chocolatiers on the square to satisfy the sweet tooth or purchase the necessary gifts.

We stayed right in the Place du Grand Sablon and found it very charming, if also fairly ritzy. The buildings are lovely and the shops are fun to windowshop in.

“A must in every route”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Fortunatley we were lucky enought to experience the last weekend of November, were "Nocturne de Sablon" is taking part. the square is illumintaed and there are stalls with al kinds of staff , from food till antiques. The place is a must during morning time and regular days too. all the chocolate shops which are more like boutiques are something to rememeber.
