For centuries people have chosen to celebrate the most important events of their lives, whether it is an engagement, a wedding or a successful business deal, with a toast and a glass of Champagne. A visit to holiday villas France in the region of Champagne/Ardenne is a must for those who like (and even those who are not partial to) this elegant wine. Raise a flute of Dom Perignon!

Epernay

The lovely towns of Epernay, home of Dom Perignon, and Reims in the region of Champagne/Ardenne are the main regional producers of the incomparable bubbly. Booking holiday villas France in Champagne is an ideal way to explore the best of France's bubbles.

Dom Perignon

Epernay is a charming town, with charming holiday villas France, located near the river Marne and its Avenue de Champagne is home to some of the most famous Champagne houses. It is said that in the 17th Century a monk called Dom Perignon invented champagne, by selecting the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.

One of the best Champagne tours in Epernay from Holiday villas France, is a visit to the impressive Moet et Chandon caves where Dom Perignon’s statue has been placed on its grounds. The enlightening tour includes a delicious glass of Moet et Chandon Champagne. Cheers! There are also tours to the Charles Heidsiek Champagne house and the Mercier Champagne house, among others. The Epernay Champagne tours are conducted in various languages by charming guides.

Reims Champagne tours

Apart from its Champagne houses and lovely cobbled streets, Reims holds an architectonic jewel, the Reims Cathedral (Notre Dame de Reims), which witnessed many coronations of French Kings. The Reims Champagne tours will take the visitor to some of the most renowned Champagnes Houses, where Champagne is kept stored in chalk caves.

Mumm Champagne, one of the leading names in the Champagne world, boasts 16 miles of dark caves, where the precious sparkling wine is preserved. There are other interesting Champagne tours in Reims, such as a visit to the amazing Veuve Clicquot House or to the Louis Roederer House, where its outstanding Cristal Champagne is produced. Sit back, sip the father of all Champagne, Dom Perginon, relax in holiday villas France and let the lovely bubbles of Champagne go to your head.
