Of course, the world-famous sparkling wine, neat rows of vineyards and châteaux are a major draw to the area, but once in Champagne, France, there is so much more to see. Cathedrals, mediaeval churches, castles, and idyllic villages are dotted around this region. There is more than a scattering of Michelin-star restaurants, and it also has the advantage of not being as overpopulated as some more obvious tourist spots in France. Only 45 minutes from Paris or a few hours from Calais, Champagne is a perfect destination for a long weekend or a few nights as part of a longer itinerary to Paris or Normandy or combined with other wine regions such as Burgundy or the Loire Valley.

Why plan a luxury holiday to Champagne, France?

Between the outdoor activities, exquisite wine tasting and rich history, there is more than enough to do in Champagne to keep you busy. You’ve got glorious countryside and forests to explore by foot or on bicycles, take to the air in a hot air balloon, enjoy the Champagne tours in local vineyards, visit the many historical buildings and picnic in fields of summer flowers.

You’ll find rich history during a Champagne holiday. Beyond the fabulous tales of the French monk Dom Perignon inventing Champagne, there’s the fascinating part the region played during World War I. Its underground quarries not only acted as a shelter against bombings, but also served as homes, schools, hospitals, and a way to communicate and travel undetected by the enemy.

The Perfect Long Weekend Escape

A long weekend away can be just the tonic you need whether for a break from work or a chance to reconnect with friends and loved ones. Champagne is an ideal destination for those magical three days. Just 45 minutes from Paris by TGV, you could jump on the Eurostar in the morning and be in Champagne by lunch. And, with Scott Dunn’s VIP Escort & Porterage services at train stations, it’s even easier.

The Champagne region is small enough to visit the best Champagne houses, eat in fantastic restaurants and spend some time exploring the beautiful scenery, all in a couple of days.

Alternatively, tag on a holiday to Champagne with a few days in Paris or when travelling to the French Alps, – it's a great stopping point between Calais and the mountains – or driving on to the South of France.
