Walk through the countryside and villages that inspired the art of Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Gauguin. Discover the peaceful river Lot, dominated by perched villages, the Loire, and visit the stunning castles (riding your bicycle). Cruise through the Champagne region, known for authentic wine and cuisine, stopping to take in all the history and beauty of towns along the way, and dine on the freshest local foods each evening.

Typical Champagne Houses that we visit include world-famous estates such as Grande Dame Veuve Clicquot (producer since 1772), Moët and Chandon, Taittinger and Billecart-Salmon, but no trip to Champagne region would be complete without visiting at least one of our carefully-selected boutique Champagne Houses, which offers an authentic behind-the-scenes experience.
