Alsace & Champagne holidays are made for travellers who enjoy the finer things in life. Savour the flavours as well as the sights along the undulating road of the Alsace Wine Route, dotted with medieval villages. Weave through Champagne’s hillsides, houses and cellars, protected by UNESCO’s World Heritage List. History fans can stand in awe of Reims Cathedral, the city that saw the coronation of France’s kings; walk the narrow streets of Strasbourg (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site); wander around the ‘Little Venice’ of Colmar; marvel at the museums in Mulhouse; or stroll through the old centre of Troyes.
Nature enthusiasts will love the lakes, mountain passes and valleys of Vosges; the landscapes between the waters and greenery of the Orient Forest Regional Nature Park; and the magical migration of cranes around the Lac du Der. And for those who like the sound of it all? Well, staying a few extra days won’t hurt…

What are the best options for an Alsace & Champagne holiday?
Sparkling in more ways that one, Champagne - land of France's most famous fizz - is a world-renowned winemaking region in the north-east of the country where you can spend your days wandering through vineyards, touring cellars and whizzing through the countryside on an E-Bike. For a glamorous and eco-friendly getaway washed down with plenty of bubbly, luxury holidays to Champagne are a real winner.
Easily accessible by train from Paris and perfectly suited to a stunning self-drive trip, Champagne is brimming with stylish cities, sleepy villages and, of course, countless cellars and vineyards to explore. After days spent weaving your way around this peaceful province, rest your head in a luxury hotel with vineyard views or bag yourself a cabin aboard a stylish barge for nights spent bobbing along a canal.
For a hit of culture, head to Reims, a lively university town with a handful of Michelin-starred restaurants and a gorgeous Gothic cathedral. Alternatively, if you fancy yourself a serious sommelier, head to one of the smaller producers to learn about how Champagne is produced and witness the process from grape to bottle taking place onsite.
