  • Champagne Tasting and Tours

    Reims Things to Do

    Not a random result, I choose the Hotel Porte Mars for more than one reason, it is located beside Charles De Cazanove Cellar, just the "next door guys". Thank you Google Earth!!

    Reims Favorites

    We stumbled across a lovely light show at Notre-Dame on our way back to our hotel. I thought the evening was over, but we stopped and watched the show. I normally feel a bit jaded about these sorts of things, but it was very well done and enjoyable. We obviously weren't the only ones so impressed, because the small assembled crowd was entirely...

  • Maison Mercier

    Épernay Things to Do

    The most popular champagne brand in France, Mercier, headquartered in Epernay, has thrived on unabashed self-promotion since it was founded in 1858 by Eugène Mercier, a trailblazer in the field of eye-catching publicity stunts and the virtual creator of the cellar tour. Everything here is flashy, including the 160,000 liter barrel that took two...

    Charleville-Mézières Things to Do

    Une saison en Enfer, Les Illuminations, “Poesies”, complete works of Rimbaud can be grouped in one book, and even not a thick one; important is the quality, not the quantity. I am just wondering what he would have written, at 25, 30, 40, 60! Rimbaud wrote between 15 and 21; he then went to Abyssinia, did not anymore produce literary work.On the...

    Vitry-le-François Things to Do

    As I mentioned in the previous tip, I walked the whole way around the outside of this Classical styled Church. It is that big, I found I had to stand a long way back to fit the whole Church in my photo's. The style is quite different to most churches, and so are the Church doors. All were painted maroon with what looked like flowers instead of the...
