Epernay - April 2012

We drove Epernay from Paris in our hire car after setting our GPS to avoid toll roads – this ensured that we saw more of the small towns, villages and countryside.

We didn’t arrange accommodation before arriving – there is a very good tourist centre in the middle of town. The town in a major centre in the Champagne region and the tidiness of the town shows that it has money! Very tourist oriented with signage and things to do.

We visited the Moet & Chandon Champagne House, in Avenue De Champagne. This avenue has many of the major champagne houses of France situated here. The Moet & Chandon tour was interesting, particularly if you have a taste for the bubbly stuff. The cellars underground traverse of 25 kilometres and you get to walk some of these – and you get a glass of bubbly at the end!

The town has a number of bar/bistros’ that serve good, well-priced meals. It has, as all French towns have, a great church (Church of Notre-Dame - yes, another one) which is worth a visit. The streets are definitely worth a walk around and which contain some great patisseries for coffee and cakes!

We stayed at the Hotel Les Berceaux, 13 Rue des Berceaux - the hotel was very neat and tidy and very well located near the centre of town. The staff were not overly friendly – we met who we think was the ‘owner/matron’ the following morning and we guessed that staff take their lead from her! We were only there overnight so it didn’t matter, but if we were to go back to Epernay (and we did enjoy it very much) we would probably look to stay elsewhere – as a ‘tourist’ town there seem to be plenty of choices.
