We are living in Reims (near Paris), the site of the crowning of the kings of France. This urban destination is perfect for history & culture, champagne, and french food lovers.
Our apartment (125 sq. m - white walls, parquet floor) takes place in the heart of the city, 2 minutes by foot from the fabulous Notre-Dame-de-Reims Cathedrale, the Palace of Tau (with French Kings Crown...) museums, theatres.
Shopping is all around with beautiful renovated Galeries Lafayettes just across the street and plenty of other great shops & good restaurants.
Many of the largest champagne-producing houses have their headquarters in Reims, and most open for tasting and tours : our home is a good base to visit all those famous Champagne Houses (Ruinart, Pommery, Veuve Clicquot, G.H MUMM...).
It is also really easy to go to Paris (5 minutes from the Reims railway, and you will be in Paris 45 mn after that with the TGV).
You will find also some activities for children. And plenty of toys at home !
Our home is also a quiet place to sleep and rest : our bedrooms (2 rooms, one for parents, one for 2 or 3 kids) are on the courtyard side. (+ an extra bed for 2 in the living room)
