Looking for a nice place to stay in the Champagne region? I have some tips for hotels and apartments for you in Épernay, Reims, Châlons-en-Champagne, and Troyes!
In Reims in France, you can see many sights in a short time. And that’s a good thing because that leaves a lot of time for outdoor cafes and champagne!
Châlons-en-Champagne: a great little town. Châlons-en-Champagne in France is one of those towns where you don’t have to run around hurriedly to see everything. It’s easily manageable in a day and a bit less urban than Reims or Épernay. Discover what you can do in Châlons-en-Champagne: from boat trips to champagne houses and restaurants to hotels.
The Champagne region is bubbling, and how! Immerse yourself completely in champagne, learn all about it, taste as much as you can, and enjoy. On y va!
In Reims and Épernay, I get overwhelmed with all the champagne around me – champagne is literally EVERYWHERE. But in Troyes, I need to hunt for bubbles – even though the city IS located in the Champagne region. In this quiet city, you will find more “half-timbered houses” than champagne houses, and that is actually pretty awesome too.
Beneath the streets of Épernay is a 110km tunnel system of champagne cellars. More than 200 million champagne bottles are ripening here. But what to do in Épernay in between the bubbles?
Strasbourg in France is a nice city for a weekend break or a stopover when traveling through West-Europe. In only a few hours of being here, I’m already charmed by Strasbourg and discover that there are more than enough sights to entertain me for a weekend.
D-Day, June 6, 1944. It was the day of the Allied invasion of Normandy via the coastline. So many soldiers met a horrible death that day. Now the same beach is the setting for a family day out. Children play with a plastic shovel or a kite, and a couple walks their dog. What a bitter contrast.
