Resembling a scene from a Christmas card, the streets of the neighbourhood have been compared to Whoville, from Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

With snow-covered cobblestone streets, a huge Christmas tree and old fashioned buildings, it's no wonder people are raving about the Quartier online – with TripAdvisor reviewers describing it as "magical at Christmas".
