Travel Challenge: September in the Champagne region
Friday 17 August 2012
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. Today: a long weekend in Champagne. Prices are per person, based on two travelling. Each includes travel to France on Saturday, 15 September and three nights' accommodation.
Return Eurostar from St Pancras to Paris, car hire and B&B at the L'Assiette Champenoise, Reims. "This gorgeous château is set in beautiful surroundings and has a Michelin-starred restaurant," says Katie Elson. (0871 895 0075; crestaholidays.co.uk)
Dover-Calais ferry with car, B&B at Hotel de la Paix, Reims, and the Château d'Etoges, plus dinner at Brasserie du Boulingrin, tours and tastings. "A strong pound makes buying wine to take home better value," says Mark Hallett (01763 273 373; grapeescapes.net).
Arblaster & Clarke
Dover-Calais ferry with car, B&B at Castel Jeanson, Montagne de Reims, vineyard tastings, a harvest lunch and grape picking. "This self-guided walking tour is great way to see the vines," says Lynette Arblaster (01730 263111; winetours.co.uk).
