I was born in Paris and lived there for most of my life until I moved to Bordeaux for a new job to work for a wine company. During my time here, I completely fell in love with Bordeaux, as well as Strasbourg and Reims, and truly discovered what we call in French art de vivre (the art of living).

Location

We would recommend that your journey starts at London St Pancras International, where you can take the Eurostar (approx. 2 hours 15 minutes) to Paris Gare du Nord.

From there, you can hop on a 45 minute high-speed train from Paris Gare de l’Est to Reims. From there, you’ll be picked up by your guide and taken to your accommodation, a 4* hotel in Reims itself.

With this serving as your base, you’ll explore the beautiful medieval city and the incredible countryside surrounding it, a patchwork of vineyards, beautiful old champagne houses and rolling hills.
