Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in the Champagne-Ardenne region, France your home away from home

The Champagne-Ardenne region of France is located in the north-east, famous for, of course, Champagne. There is far more to see and do in the Champagne-Ardenne region than simply drinking fine wine, although no holiday in the area would be complete without a little indulgence! The countryside of the Champagne-Ardenne region is a magical place, from the thick forests to the crystal clear lakes, limestone karsts to the rolling hills of the Champagne plain.

Things to do on holiday to the Champagne-Ardenne region, France

There are over 650km of waterways throughout the Champagne-Ardenne region. Slowly meandering along the rivers in a canoe, rowing boat or small yacht is a magnificent way to explore the region during your stay in a Champagne-Ardenne gite, letting you see the area from a new perspective, getting up close to the wildlife and birdlife that calls the region home. Alternatively, you can discover Champagne-Ardenne is by hot air balloon, which lets you see huge swathes of the region at the same time. Champagne-Ardenne is well off the beaten track, never swarmed by tourists, allowing you to walk, cycle and ride through the varying terrains and past the huge chateaux that adorn the countryside in peace.

The Champagne-Ardenne region is steeped in history too. Along with the history of the Champagne trade, parts of the infamous Maginot Line can still be clearly seen in parts of the region, as well as Roman remains in towns such as Langres. The impressive châteaux and castles that adorn the region are also well worth further investigation from a Champagne-Ardennes villa, especially if you are travelling by foot, bicycle or horseback, all of which hare hugely popular methods to travel the countryside.

No rough guide to the Champagne-Ardenne region would be complete without mentioning the ‘king of wines’, in many areas, vineyards cover the landscape for as far as the eye can see, with a huge number giving tours and wine tasting sessions to visitors. La Route Touristique du Champagne is a magnificent, pre-planned route for tourists to learn about the most famous of all wines, from the storage caves to the Champagne houses of Mumm and Veuve Clicquot.

The facilities in the property were fine although we missed some comfortable chairs in which to relax. Langres is an interesting town which has a long history and has been the centre of commerce in the region. Visits to Charles De Gaulle museum at Colombey lex Deux egilises , the museum of cutlery at Nogent, and the Abbey at Fontenay were well worthwhile. There are a number of good restaurants in the town with excellent food at Cheval le Blanc even if a little expensive!
