If you like quietude, silence, walking under the...

  • Vineyards and villages

Back breaking work as no machinery can be...

  • Route Touristique du Champagne

    The Champagne Tourist Route is a wonderful 600 km of winding roads through the vinyards & gorgeous little villages of Champagne. There are seven different recommended routes, but we just went our own way.There are sign posts all along the routes to keep you on the right roads. Even the smallest of hamlets seem to have somewhere selling champagne.
