GÏTE RURAL 3 STARS FOR 2-5 PERSONS
Our visit to Champillon was extraordinary!! First, Christian and Catherine are amazing hosts! They do everything they can to help their guests have a good time. They shared champagne and wine with us, took us on a driving tour of the region and set up a visit to Bertrand Devavry champagne house for us so we could taste the grape juice from freshly harvested and pressed grapes as well as taste their Grand Cru champagne. Their apartment is great too! I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our visit here. Champagne Mercier, Champagne Castellane and the Mailly Champagne cooperative were also fun visits. Visiting this area at harvest time was a big plus! Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer.
We were welcomed by a lovely couple, Catherine and Christian. The champagne was absolutely one of the best I've tried Christian!
The gite was very clean, tidy, welcoming and the view was fantastic. The stay was only two nights, and we wished it was more. Thank you for the fond memories!
This immaculate gite is located in the tiny town of Champillon, in the heart of the Champagne region. There are champagne houses on almost every corner. I can only echo what previous guests have said about Catherine and Christian. We stayed in three different gites all across France and they were by far the most helpful and welcoming hosts. Their homemade champagne is superb and they are two of the most charming people you will meet. The apartment is well-designed and outfitted for a couple who likes to cook. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Champagne.
Catherine and Christian were phenomenal hosts! We feel truly lucky to have stayed in the beautiful studio above their garage. We were greeted with a homemade bottle of Champagne (some of the best we had on our trip) and lovely conversation. We felt right at home. The studio is located in the perfect spot in Champagne. The views were incredible and it was easy to get Champagne Ave. as well as grocery stores and restaurants. The studio had everything you would find in your own home. They truly put a lot of time and energy into making it such a wonderful place to stay. Throughout our travels in Europe, this was one of my favorite places! Thank you again Catherine et Christian !
From the minute we arrived, we were treated so special. Catherine greeted us at the door when we knocked to get the keys. She and Christian are two of the warmest persons we've met during our stay in France. After sharing 3 bottles of their home grown champagne, she searched thru her stack of restaurant business cards and found us a 9pm reservation at a restaurant in Epernay on a Saturday night. We could not have felt more welcome. She and Christian walked us over to the studio and I can't tell you how charming their home is. The studio that we stayed in is situated above their garage. While the stairs up to the studio are a bit steep and just a tad narrow, they in my opinion added to the experience. The studio was so clean, spacious, and bright. The bed was so comfortable, the sitting area was so quaint, the kitchen had everything that we needed and, in fact, had way too much such that you could cook meals if you wanted (I of course saw that as such a bad thing because I didn't want to cook a single thing, but so nice that they had everything that you would need if you wanted to cook). The WC and the shower were immaculate. The TV was small but I am telling you, that was a blessing because there is no way anyone should sit in the room watching TV when you have that beautiful view out the window. The studio was even equipped with a nice fan which I am sure comes in handy on warmer days. Sleeping was so comfortable that I didn't even want to get up to explore the amazing towns nearby. The windows are equipped with electronic shutters so you could close out the day if you wanted to. And I would recommend that if going out, you do close the windows/shutters as being in a fruity/vegetated area, you will get some bugs in the rental. Driving out of the village where they live, Champillon, we realized how beautiful this whole area is. I've always said that it is all about the LOCATION...and this rental is perfect for exploring the many small villes, caves, and just enjoying the winding roads thru the Vineyards of Tribaut, Moet & Chandon, etc. So, while you might probably find something more luxurious, maybe with a pool, or maybe with a bigger TV, this rental comes with what you won't find in any other place. You get Christian and Catherine and if you are lucky, as we were, you get to meet Alain, Catherine's brother, and his wife. Alain is a very talented artist who is making a name for himself with some very bold, strong colored paintings.
The Gite was a pleasant surprise, with full kitchen facilities, washing and heating. Unfortunately, we struck the area during a really cold patch but we still enjoyed our stay and visits to the surrounding areas.
Hosts, Catherine & Christian were very helpful and shared their experience of things to do and see in the area.
Visits to a few of the champagne houses went down very well.
The gite is in the mountains but easy to get down to local shopping and food outlets.
I did a fair amount of walking in the area and came across some great scenery.
At the town hall, there is a baguette dispensing machine that is filled daily. Get in early is my advice
We would love to go back and stay again
