“Final resting place of Dom Pérignon”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The ancient Benedictine abbaye, founded in 650, is now a private property, owned by the champagne house Moët and Chandon, but you can still visit the very pleasant church. Go and pay your respects to the “father” of champagne, the monk Dom Pérignon (1639 - 1715), in his final resting place in the village known as the cradle of champagne.

There are very clean toilet facilities in the garden.

Hautvillers is really a lovely village so take the time to explore it, have lunch, drink some champagne (what else?!), take in the beautiful views and see how many quaintly painted hanging sign posts you can spot (there are well over a 100) that indicate what an inhabitant's profession or hobbies are. The Tourist Office is very helpful here so you can get some brochures and useful advice.
