Vines and flutes, bubbles and passionate vintners, strolls in the countryside near renowned Champagne houses, prestigious cellars and historic spaces–Champagne always makes the eyes sparkle and the heart soar. This is especially the case if one is staying at one of these charming lodgings nestled in the middle of the vineyards!

Cottages Antoinette: panoramic views of the vineyard

"So-Bo", "Zen-Hit" and "Fizzy-Pop": with their effervescent little names, the three Antoinette Cottages built on stilts in the middle of the Champagne vines, above the village of Chigny-les-Roses, promise unforgettable stays. Built in contemporary style, 100% wood production with High Environmental Quality, they marry industrial spirit, cozy atmospheres and chic trends. The cottages also offer a four-star immersion on the hillside with panoramic views of the vineyard and Reims on the horizon. How about doing a take on room service and ordering a packed lunch for a gourmet picnic to soak up the views?

Le Royal Champagne: stay in majesty

Napoleon is said to have slept in this former coaching inn overlooking the vineyards of the great Champagne houses, including Moët & Chandon. It is not known whether the emperor really did enjoy a stay at Champillon, but the Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa remains one of the most exclusive accommodations in the Champagne countryside, and you're guarenteed to more than enjoy your stay here. From the large bay windows of the 47 rooms and suites of this mansion brought up to contemporary standards, you can make out the hillsides and the bottom of the valley where Epernay is nestled. It's truly an imperial stay!

The Château de Sacy: journey to the land of Champagne

Nuit de Miel (Honeymoon), Madame de Pompadour, Valse pétillante (Sparkling Waltz), Marie-Antoinette—the 12 suites at Château de Sacy tell the story of women, of France and of Champagne. A bright 19th century building set in an exceptional vineyard in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, the former Villa Maria has remained a mansion where Champenoise art-de-vivre is cultivated with elegance. It boasts an indoor and outdoor spa, bistronomic restaurant and terraces that open wide onto the vineyards, as well as bucolic bicycle routes.

Le Domaine du Chalet: exceptional bubbles

Between woods and vines, in the heart of the Grands and Premiers Crus of the Palmer & Co vineyard, the Domaine du Chalet welcomes you in the warm atmosphere of a large family house in Champagne. Built in 1860 in Chigny les Roses, in the Montagne de Reims Natural Park, this historic residence, nestled in a large park populated with hundred-year-old trees, invites you to take a break (and have a glass). Time to discover this magnificent jewel of Champagne, its unique terroir and its rich historical heritage.

Le Logis aux Bulles: winegrower's hospitality

Ideally located in the center of the Reims-Epernay-Châlons-en-Champagne triangle, the Logis d'Edith et Laurent, "vignerons en Champagne" (Winegrowers in Champagne), sparkles with imagination and good humor. The three bedrooms are a study in whimsy, like this champagne stand used as a headboard. It's not just fun and games, however: cellar visits and tastings initiate visitors into this winegrowing world with lessons on the making of Champagne. A stone's throw away, the forest of "Faux de Verzy" makes the stay more wild with unusual routes through twisted beech trees, another local curiosity.

On 13 hectares (32 acres), the estate lords over the hillsides here, providing the best exposure for grapes to make the precious sparkling elixir. Guest cottages, apartments and four elegant rooms welcome lovers of Champagne authenticity in the heart of a winegrower's estate overlooking the vineyards.
