Itinerary

Description

What better way to get into the festive spirit than with a short break in Northern France.

First, experience the magic of Paris at the start of the yuletide season. One of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world is transformed as its most iconic monuments and boulevards are illuminated. Then give a toast to the beginning of Advent when sampling a few glasses of festive fizz in the champagne capital of Épernay, A glass full of sparkles and a sky full of glittering festive lights make for the perfect pre-Christmas treat.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Journey to France
We catch the ferry to Calais and continue on to our hotel in Reims Tinqueux, where we stay on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day 2 – Paris including guided city tour
We journey to Paris and enjoy a guided city tour, taking in all the main sights, from the Arc de Triomphe to Notre Dame and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. We then have free time to explore at our own pace. Wander through the quaint streets of the Latin Quarter or along the banks of the Seine spanned with ornate bridges. Enjoy an early dinner before the coach picks us up to return to the hotel.


Day 3 – Épernay champagne tasting & Reims
Today the coach takes us to the town of Épernay, the self-titled capital du champagne in the heart of the vineyards. Beneath the streets lies a labyrinth of subterranean cellars fizzing away with millions of bottles of aging champagne. We visit a celebrated champagne house and enjoy tasting a tipple or two before we rejoin the coach and head to the city of Reims for some time at leisure.  There’s plenty to see, including the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Reims and Musée de la Reddition, which was the site of Germany’s official surrender at the end of the Second World War. We’ll have a chance to enjoy dinner in a local restaurant before returning to the hotel.

Day 4 – Journey home
We check out of our hotel and head back to Calais for our return ferry home.

Novotel

Situated in Reims Tinqueux, the Novotel is conveniently located for our excursions to Paris and Epernay. Nestled in a calm, green setting right in the heart of the champagne district, the hotel is just a few minutes from the historical centre of Reims with some UNESCO listed sites. All the comfortable rooms are en suite and other facilities include a bar and restaurant.
