If you've seen the latest iPhone ad, you know that Santa is using Siri to navigate his way around the globe this Christmas. One place we know he'll be hitting up is the pretty Hotel Hermitage in Monte Carlo.

The posh hotel, the more subdued sister of the famous Hotel de Paris, is offering a special Christmas package partly inspired by the growing number of families who have to choose sides when it comes to where to spend Christmas. And they're throwing in an appearance by Père Noël aka Santa.

We already told you about the hotel's Christmas package here but if you're in need of a very, very last-minute stay in MC for Xmas, here's what the Hermitage is offering:

The tree and moving diorama in Hermitage's lobby.

It all begins on Christmas Eve, when parents and two kids (under 12) check into their two adjoining rooms. The kids' room will be decorated with its own Christmas Tree. Then from 4.pm, the families are invited to attend a Christmas Tea in the hotel's Salle Belle Epoque (a breathtaking ballroom if ever there was one.)

Kids will be able to make homemade gifts and tree decorations (from recyclable materials) and nibble on pastries and other yummy snacks. Once they're bored with all the craft, they can board Father Christmas's carriage for a ride around Monte Carlo's Place du Casino (which, of course, is currently ablaze with beautiful holiday lights).

During the Christmas Eve Dinner, served in the Salle Belle Epoque, Santa will slip into the kids' rooms upstairs and leave gifts from Hotel Hermitage under the tree.

Parents will be glad to know that they get a treat too, in the form of the 'Cercle Monte-Carlo' card, which gives them free access to the Casino de Monte-Carlo and shuttles to other SBM properties.

The Family Christmas Deal is available on Christmas Eve from 640 euros.

P.S. We'd check in for the smell alone. The entire hotel smells of a signature scent called 'Christmas Tree' by Dr. Vranjes, Firenze. Yum!
