3 Handpicked Romantic Champagne Hotspots You Shouldn’t Miss in Your Lifetime
Champagne, the name has almost become synonymous with love, romance, passion--and yes, France! So, what better way to have a romantic holiday with the woman of your dreams at one of these 3 lovely places from France that have a deep champagne connection?
Take a look!
3 Finest Romantic Champagne Hotspots
Paris: The stunningly beautiful capital of France sits right at the top of the list of the champagne hotspots of the world. A visit to the ‘City of Love’ won’t be complete if you don’t explore its many enticing wine regions. No other place in the world makes real champagne, and no other great wine region has the kind of easy access that Paris provides.
From this strategically located and well-connected place, you may make a trip o nearly every famed champagne house of the nation--with no trouble and minus a car. For long, the place appeared more focused on making top-notch wines, vis-à-vis first-rate hospitality. It has changed though over the past couple of years, with better accommodation, and better food landscape, countless wine bars, and several new places of tourist interests for travelers--from better champagne house trips to new museums.
In addition, more wine than you may even think of, here you will find as many as 5 UNESCO World Heritage sites, very old castles, art, crafts, and every type of outdoor activity such as cycling, hiking, and horseback riding.
Reims: The ‘unofficial’ capital of the champagne-making region of France, Reims is a lovely town and is placed at a just 40-minute distance from east Paris. It’s not difficult to fall in love with this small but beautiful town.
A lively university city, Reims is the typical busy regional capital, with a magnificent old town and a glorious cathedral that dates back to the 13th century, and one of the finest gothic buildings in the northern part of the country.
Reims is actually a bigger city in France’s northeastern Grand East region, with 180K-plus inhabitants. However, since not many visitors really know much about this somewhat rural destination; leisurely walking around the cobblestone streets, and making a trip to the brasseries, dated 100s of years back, is a soothing, incredible experience for most of them.
Epernay: The town of Epernay is located on the chalky hills southwest of Reims. Here, you may get pleasure from tastings at the home of many champagne producers, such as Moet & Chandon and Perrier-Jouet. The town is completely surrounded by vines. Stroll down the Avenue de Champagne--with its impressive mansion façades and lavish middle-class homes occupied by well-known Champagne Houses—even as you and your partner will learn why the place is called the ‘Capital of Champagne’.
Wrapping up, Paris, Reims, and Epernay--all from France--are the three wonderful romantic champagne tourist hotspots that you should visit with someone special. A trip to these will turn out to be the one that you and your beloved would remember all life--you can bet!
