Halle Berry is celebrating Christmas in France with Olivier Martinez.

The 'Cloud Atlas' star - who recently resolved her custody battle with her daughter Nahla's father Gabriel Aubry - was spotted arriving with her French fiance at Los Angeles International airport without the four-year-old child where they caught a transatlantic flight to Paris.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 46-year-old actress is eager to celebrate a low key holiday following Olivier's highly publicised physical fight with Canadian model Gabriel, 36, on Thanksgiving morning last month.

The insider also revealed that while Nahla is going to spend a few days with her father, she will fly to France to join her mother and Olivier with her nanny in a few days time.

Halle allegedly wanted to move with her daughter to France because her actor fiance Olivier Martinez wants to leave the US but a judge blocked her bid to relocate, which increased tension between her and Gabriel before they came to an amicable agreement after his fight with Olivier, 46.

A source previously said: ''The main reason that Halle wanted to uproot Nahla from Southern California, where her father, Gabriel Aubry, currently lives, is because Olivier doesn't want America to be his primary residence anymore.

''Olivier's family and friends all live in France and he is desperate to move back there. Yes, Halle did like the fact that France has strict privacy laws that govern the press, but that wasn't the reason for the proposed move. The judge overseeing the custody dispute between Halle and Gabe didn't think it was in Nahla's best interest for her to be moved halfway around the world to a foreign country, mainly because contact with her father would have drastically cut.''
