Reims holiday rentals - the heart of Champagne country
Not far from Paris and Calais is the charming city of Reims, in the heart of Champagne country, with many beautiful buildings as grand and memorable as the local tipple. Book a holiday rental Reims at any time of year to experience the best of France; the city's history began 2000 years ago and there's plenty to show for it, from the Porte Mars, a Roman city gate from the third century AD, to the magnificent and vast Cathedrale Notre-Dame and the Basilique Saint-Remi. French kings were crowned in Reims cathedral for over a thousand years, and it features stained glass from the thirteenth century, as well as by Marc Chagall. Don't miss the chance to climb to the top of the tower! The Palace of Tau, an old bishops' residence, and the Abbey of Saint Remi, now a museum, round off the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that you can see when you opt for a Reims holiday rental.
Reims has a large pedestrianised centre with plenty of boutiques, fine dining restaurants and cafes. In the summer, people gather to sit outdoors in the Place de Drouet d'Erlon, and in the winter it plays host to a delightful traditional Christmas market. In the evenings, you can head out from your holiday rental Reims and go to the theatre, or to see some live music, or simply dance the night away in one of the city's numerous bars and clubs.
Champange lovers – or, indeed, lovers in general – will love staying in a Reims holiday rental. Underneath Reims, millions of Champagne bottles are ageing in extensive networks of old chalk corridors, as the city is home to the headquarters of many of the biggest names in champagne; you can book tours that often feature a tasting at the end.
