Built-in the Gothic style, Laon is one of France’s oldest cathedrals. Protected since 1840, the cathedral overlooks the city of Laon from the “Laon’s mountain”. With two tall towers and a beautiful round window, the front of the cathedral is wonderful to look at. The outside and inside are also wonderfully detailed. The clever lines designed by architect Villard De Honnecourt invite you to take a walk around the cloister.
The Champagne region
Here you are, the region which made France famous at every celebration, the Champagne region! Crossing the vineyards laced with the special champagne grapevine we invite you to make a stop (or maybe several) and talk with the local producers, they are the best teachers ever. If you have ever drunk “champagne” from anywhere else, this taste will make you forget it in an instant. The purest and tastiest champagne is right here.
So after your walk, please have a seat and relax while drinking a “coupe de champagne”
The famous Cathedral of Reims
It is impossible to cross Reims without seeing the Cathedral. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, it’s the traditional place for the coronation of the King of France. So the cathedral holds an important place in French History.
Damaged during the French revolution and by the World Wars, the Cathedral was rebuilt in the same gothic style. The front of the cathedral is covered with statues of past Kings and important figures. Inside, the detailed stained glass windows date from between the 13th and 20th centuries. Its luminosity and architectural achievement raised Notre Dame de Reims above all other churches in the area.
