La Chevalee
Ranked #1 of 3 Hautvillers B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had the pleasure of spending two nights here in May this year and I highly recommend it to anybody considering a visit to the Champagne region. The house is charming, our room was large and comfortable with a great view of the vineyards and the bathroom was better than many 4* hotels we stayed in while in France. Cecile was warm and welcoming and went out of her way to make us feel at home. From the flute of champagne on arrival, to the delicious homemade breakfast and even helping with some washing, our stay at La Chavalee was absolutely outstanding!

Nice place, excellent service, quit, clean and nice and charming room. The breakfast is to remember! Only two rooms, but they are spacey and the bathroom is great! The small village is charming, but all restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday. Epernay is close and lot of restaurants.

On a champagne buying dash to France, so just stayed last Friday night.
This is a lovely traditional house, and Cecile is very friendly and welcoming.
We were attracted because there was secure parking, and you could walk to a couple of champagne houses, and walk to the local restaurant.
The added bonus was the champagne on tap in the fridge, the fantastic view and the lovely room. Cecile made us very welcome, and we had a lovely breakfast with plenty of her homemade jams and yogurt.
Its worth returning just to drink your morning coffee outside on the terrace with the great view. And very reasonably priced too !

Amongst the hundreds of private guest houses jostling for business how would it have been possible for the gems to shine before the WWW? The answer is they couldn't, because they were not hotels being assessed by an army of hotel reviewers. Today the picture is very different and a truly outstanding establishment, such as La Chevalee, can have broadcast to the world the praise it deserves. The effort which Cecile and her family make to ensure an excellent stay in the town which invented champagne, is remarkable. The rooms are beautiful, the views glorious and as for the breakfast it takes the whole concept of 'freshly prepared' to a new level. Home made yogurts, jams, juices and spreads compliment a dazzling array of hams, cheeses, breads and fruits. We were delighted to have experienced the hard work and dedication that the proprietors have brought to this superb guesthouse.

I was lucky enough to be the only guest arriving on a Sunday evening, and Cecile was very helpful in guiding my larger car through the property door for the secure parking, and then offering a glass of house champagne, and the opportunity to sit with her friends at a table in the courtyard with one of the best views in Champagne over the vineyards around Bouzy and Epernay.

The top room as mentioned by others is enormous, with good bed and sitting room facilities, and the attached bathroom is equally spacious, and modern and well appointed. Breakfast was sumptuous, with Cecile attentive at all times, but never intrusive.

Hautvillers is a lovely village to walk around, but has very few places to eat, although the champagne shop and tasting bar Au36 is just around the corner from la Chevalee. I drove into Epernay for Sunday dinner, and Cecile even popped out unexpectedly as I returned, to open the gate again! Even the quirky chicken coop made me feel at home.

:La Chevalee is very comfortable and relaxing, and Cecile is incredibly hospitable. It is excellent value for the combination of very good rooms, great location and view, and wonderful welcome and attention during a stay. I will certainly return again.

Room Tip: Ask for the top room with attached bathroom

We originally booked one night here, but ended up cancelling somewhere else and coming back for a second night. Although La Chevalee is located in Hautvillers, it is only a 10 min drive from Epernay and I would strongly recommend staying here rather than Epernay if you don't mind the drive. This B&B is small and intimate (3 rooms), but the owners live in a separate part of the house and give you your privacy, but are available when you need them. The rooms are spotless. We stayed in 2 different rooms - the top room was the largest and had a stand-alone bath with bath salts and candles. The view from the rooms was beautiful. The breakfast was huge and something to look forward to. We felt that this was a better option than staying in Epernay for us, as Epernay didn't seem to have the character and the B&B we tried there seemed more like a mini-hotel. Our favourite thing about La Chevalee was that Cecile offers cold champagne by the bottle or glass and has an 'honor system' whereby you can take a glass and record it in a little book and pay on checkout. This was a lovely touch and we definately took advantage of it!

Room Tip: The top room is the largest.

This B&B gets the balance just right: extremely homely and comfortable; spotless and roomy lodgings; and a very welcoming and helpful host. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation and can not wait to return ourselves. Many thanks to Cecile for making our stay so enjoyable!
