A summer holiday break in another wine region

Having a 10 day break in Champagne in North East France, having rented a cottage in the countryside near Epernay … luckily I like the Chardonnay grape.
There are over 5000 Champagne houses and another 14,000 growers who only sell their grapes, so there is a reasonable selection to choose from.



Stunning Chateaux everywhere as well as interesting old half-timbered houses,mainly from the 16th Century, making it a delightful place to just wander about.


The old town of Troyes which has been around since Roman times is a real perpetual “wow look at that” place to visit.
