Pop Up the Champagne!
This week we decided to inspire you with another part of France that we love. Embark for your next destination in the heart of the most beautiful vineyards of Champagne!
Located in north-eastern France, the region of Champagne is most famous for being a home to the bubbly beverage with the same name, attracting many tourists and visitors each year. Meet the winegrowers, share their passion, listen to them talking about the Champagne and their production… They will perhaps tell you some secrets! You will privately discover properties with ancestral know-how and a technique that has been handed down from generation to generation.
