I am looking to take my girlfriend to the region for a long weekend seeing some scenic sites and tasting some champers! I was planning to drive to somewhere near Reims (2-3 hours from Calais is as far as I want to go), but as it is a big town was hoping to stay somewhere a little more intimate but with a couple of bars and restaurants, whilst still giving good access to the champagne cellars and sites of interest.
Can anyone recommend a nice town/village to stay in for a couple in their late 20's, or convince me of somewhere equivalent to stay in Reims? I am open to any hints, suggestions, recommendations or comments so please respond if you have any knowledge or experience of the area.
Cheers in advance
