November can be a miserable month in the UK so do you fancy a weekend away staying in a chic Château set in the stunning countryside for the weekend whilst touring Epernay and Reims, the home to the finest and most expensive Champagnes in the world? Yes? Well it’s just up our street as well so why not join us for a fun and relaxed trip and enjoy some good company, good food as well as some obligatory delicious Champagnes of course. What’s not to like about Champagne after all and you can take the opportunity to brush up on ‘parler en français aussi!!’
WSE have stayed at the Château (pictured opposite) as well as visited and personally selected the Champagne Houses we’ll visit
The Champagne region is in northern France so it’s pretty easy and straightforward to get to using the Eurotunnel or ferry. The Château, located in the upper area of Champagne, will have a welcome cocktail awaiting you so you can park your car up and forget about it for the weekend.
We make it our mission on EVERY trip to go that extra mile to ensure that our tours are truly well prepared to even the smallest minutiae. We leave nothing to chance and genuinely want our guests to really enjoy their experience with us.
The bedrooms at the Château are all really lovely and individually designed with quality finishes and features like beams; whirlpools; TV; DVD player; safe; minibar; Wi-Fi; Egyptian linen sheets, personalised bathrobes, slippers and welcome products; and it goes on! You have the day to yourself so perhaps you’d like to relax in the spa; have some beauty treatments, swim or a work out in the gym; walk around the grounds (there’s plenty to see); go cycling or mountain biking; or simply have a drink in the lounge. In the evening we’ll have dinner together where you can make new friends whilst enjoying food that looks and tastes amazing (more generous than most ‘haute cuisine’!!) as well as indulge in the fabulous and extensive wine list?
On Saturday after a typically French breakfast including delicious cheeses, meats, fruit, yoghurts, homemade croissants, chocolat au pains and breads, you will be whisked away in to Epernay to have a tour around one of the oldest and most prestigious Champagne Houses visiting their chalky cellars deep below the surface. The underground cellars that stretch along the Avenue are claimed to be one of the most expensive in the world. You’ll enjoy a post-tour flute of Champagne before having a browse around their Boutique where you maybe tempted to purchase a few treats! Lunch will be an informal picnic in a stunning park (weather permitting). Then we’ll be off to Reims to have a look around the caves of another infamous and impressive Champagne House. Here you will be ‘double indulged’ with a delicious flute of very OLD Champagne in their impressive contemporary renovated and trendy boutique before returning to the Château. A bit of time to relax before our Grande Finale dinner. More good company, good food and fine wine to bring the day to a close.
