Camping near Reims

by loubylou24

In August we are camping in a place called CHALONS-EN-CHAMPAGNE (MARNE) . Apparently it is a 4 star site according to a travel book we have, but there is no website. Has anyone stayed here? If so is it ok. It is a municipal campsite. Any info will be gratefully received.

We haven't stayed in that particular campsite, but every municipal campsite in France that we have used has been very nice.

If you have a book store nearby, look up "Camping and Caravanning in France" and see what they say. It's very reliable.

The camping site should be OK but Chalons en Champagne is one of the dullest town I know. Chalons-sur-Marne became Chalons-en-Champagne a few years ago, a more appealing name but it is misleading as there is no vineyard in the vicinity.
The prestigious title of "Capitale du Champagne" is disputed between Epernay and Reims, 38 km and 44 km far from Chalons "en Champagne" respectively.
Lot of Champagne cellars ("caves" in French) to visit in both cities. Magnificent and huge cathedral in Reims. Notre Dame Cathedral of Paris is bland in comparison (and small)

Thank you for your advice. Chalon-en-champagne campsite is just a base really. We intend travelling around the area. One thing you may be able to help with....My Husband and I and the two children hope to visit Paris. We were hoping to go by train. Would there be a direct line from near our campsite to Paris? If we decided to stay overnight in Paris to vist Euro Disney the next day could you recommend and reasonable accomodation?

Thanking you in anticipation Louise

The Hall

by MEdelmann


Here you can see another photo of the cathedral. It shows the church hall with a view to the wonderful glass window of Marc Chagall, which is at the end of the church.

Does it needs words to describe the beauty of the church? Gothic architecture is very interesting in my opinion and in Europe there can be found so much examples of this great architectural era ...

cellars of champagne Veuve Clicquot

by barbipez

When you take the "guided tour," you get the history of the woman that made this champagne so famous. If i remember correctly, she's the one that figured out how to make champagne clear, and not murky...had to do with a system of tilting the bottles to let the sediment settle to the neck of the bottle, freezing it and then popping it out or something like that...

Then at the end, you get a small taste of one of their bruts i believe, and you have to opportunity to buy any of their products.

One of the well-known champagne names with the distinctive Cordon Rouge (Red Band) on its bottles. Of course I could've put up a picture of the label up here, but much preferred the one I made myself.

- Say hello to Dom Perignon...

by LysDor

- Say hello to Dom Perignon -

Dom Perignon is the prestige cuvée of the giant Moët et Chandon Champagne house. It is named after the famous monk, who was the most important early influence in the development of Champagne into the sparkling wine we know today.

It was not the first Champagne to use his name, as early in the last century small proprietaire-recoltants (farmer-growers) at Hautvillers, employed it for their wine. Unfortunately for them they did not register the name, Dom Perignon, as a trademark.

Dom Perignon was born Pierre Perignon in 1640, the son of a clerk to the local judge at Saint-Menehould, a small town to the east of the Champagne region. At the age of 19 he entered the Benedictine Order at the Abbey of Saint-Vannes at Verdun. When he was just 28 he was appointed cellarmaster at the Abbey of Hautvillers.

Long-time rumours that Dom Perignon had heightened tasting faculties because he was blind are completely without foundation. It seems that he did have a serious problem with his vision at one stage in his life but this healed in due course.

Whilst he is often attributed with the invention of Champagne, there are earlier recorded instances of the production of sparkling wines by the Champagne method. Nevertheless he was a remarkable viticulteur (grape grower) and winemaker and clearly well ahead of his generation. It is likely that he was the first to teach blending skills in the Champagne region, and he also appears to have been the first person to successfully contain the local sparkling wine in reinforced glass bottles by sealing them with Spanish corks.
