Trip Report The Scenic Champagne Region Along The Marne River

Jump to last reply

The Champagne region is not known for its natural beauty and scenery but it does have its scenic bits. Maybe not scenic compared to the Dordogne or Provence but for northern France it's not too bad and there is an area that I find scenic in the Marne River valley between Epernay in the west and Nanteuil-sur-Marne in the east. Most people do champagne day trips to Reims and Epernay but you can take one of the local trains that run between Paris and Epernay and get off at one of the small villages along the way and visit the smaller, unknown champagne houses and also do some easy, scenic hikes through the vineyards and along the river, maybe stopping at a nice restaurant along the way. I took my bike on the train out to the region and did an exploration starting in the town of Nanteuil-sur-Marne, which is only 47 minutes by train from Paris. Here's the photo report I made if you might be interested in doing a little off the beaten path exploring, so have a look if you'd like.
