The region has deep forests, which are often reflected in the
clear water of lakes and streams running through the limestone rocks, of which
characterise the famous contours of the Champagne plain.
It is within this limestone strata that hundreds of miles of rock have been excavated to
provide underground galleries for the housing and maturing of the wine, and some of which
are open to the public for viewing, and the ultimate in tasting!
But lets get away from the sparkling Wine! It
is along the 650km of waterways and lakes, that you will relax in comfort and peace on
board a house boat, or a panoramic boat-drifting
excursion, which will take you through a variety of scenes, observing migratory birds and
animals who have made their habitat along the banks.
There is so much to discover within the Champagne-Ardenne region. Why not take in
the splendour of the Reims cathedral, where the kings of France used to be crowned, or the
Sedan castle. How about the fortified city of Langres, or the 16th century old
houses at Troyes? There are also many wooden faced churches in the Champagne region,
and the list could go on and on....!
