Champagne and Ardenne bed and breakfast accommodationChampagne. The drink and the region are captivating. The drink? Well, there are numerous small Champagne producers around Reims and Epernay to which your b&b hosts will be delighted to introduce you. You will sample dry Champagne made from the Chardonnay grape, fruitier, softer Champagne produced from a combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, and then also the stunning rosť Champagne from the area. Personally, I would steer away from the overly marketed, gimmicky Champagne producers such as Moet, Bollinger, Veuve Cliquot, although a visit to their Champagne cellars in Epernay on the Avenue de Champagne is an experience. For an authentic, more traditional grass roots experience, take the Route Touristique de Champagne and meander through the vineyards, stopping at smaller producers' vineyards where Champagne tasting and sales are offered. If you stay in a b&b amongst the vineyards between Reims and Epernay, you will be in the heart of the action. Reims is just 3 hours from Calais which makes a short break amidst the vineyards of Champagne perfectly possible.
