Weekend for 2 in Champagne Region
Collected by Adriana Yampey , AFAR Local Expert
We spent a wonderful weekend in the Champagne region, in France and got to discover the country side along with a few of the champagne houses in the cities of Epernay and Reims.
51130 Vertus, France
I cannot imagine a better hotel and room for a romantic (and naughty) weekend for two. It was our first outing alone since we had children, eight years ago, so I wanted something cheeky but elegant. This hotel fulfilled my wishes at a very...
51130 Vertus, France
After the First World War, Maurice Doyard brought back his vineyards from ruin, in Vertus. As he was preparing his vineyards to produce Champagne he helped to organize an association of Champagne producers. They have one premier cru vineyard and...
20 Avenue de Champagne, 51200 Épernay, France
This was the only champagne house we did not get to see. Due to an overwhelming amount of visitors we needed to make a reservation and we did not know that as the other champagne houses were not as crowded. Our fault for not doing our homework...
9 Rue Saint-Nicaise, 51100 Reims, France
The story goes that Thibauld IV of Champagne returned from the Crusade bringing two things, the beautiful roses, planted today right at the entrance, and the Chardonnay grapes. However, the Chardonnay grape, as demonstrated by a team of...
Champagne Collard-Picard have opened a new showroom on the Avenue de Champagne in Épernay. This street has become one of my favorite streets in the world due to a large number of champagne houses on each side of the road. Practically, you exit one...
Avenue de Champagne, Épernay, France
Avenue de Champagne is precisely that, a street with champagne houses all along it, on both sides. It's a must visit while in Épernay if you want to try different champagnes. I would not recommend it if you have small children or even older ones....
4 Rue de Châlons, 51130 Vertus, France
The pasta with seafood at Le Comedia, in Vertus, is something I have to share with the world. You can have it in the menu without the prawns or as a separate main course with the prawns. I had this two times, once in the menu and once separate and...
68 Avenue de Champagne, 51200 Épernay, France
You'll take a subterranean train to see the caves and taste some of their champagne. Pictured here is the world's largest wine cask Mercier used in 1889 to advertise his company. The caves are on the same street with Moet and the others so you...
5 Place du Général Gouraud, 51100 Reims, France
The caves Pommery were the last on our champagne tour. The estate is very impressive. Going inside will impress you as well. The waiting area is massive and has a bar area where you can buy champagne glasses. On the opposite side they have the...
39 Avenue du Général Leclerc, 51130 Vertus, France
During our weekend in Champagne we tried many, many champagnes but this one was by far my favorite. The tour was great, informative and the champagne tasting was free because we were guests of their hotel. I love the small champagne houses, nine...
