The regions of Alsace and Lorraine in the north east of France are perfect partners and share a taste for a genial outlook on life. Both celebrate Christmas in style and the festive markets of Strasbourg, Mulhouse, Metz and Nancy are famous for their gourmet delights. From the magnificent wine routes of Alsace, Lorraine’s art of tableware, medieval architecture and Art Nouveau decor, enchanting villages which nestle at the feet of castles and centres of contemporary art, these two regions offer the best of food and art…
Champagne, with its UNESCO listed cellars, domains and vineyards, is a fitting location for the king of wines! Its grand Champagne Houses are the founders of a festive lifestyle best savoured in the heart of the vineyards. But Champagne also has a long and illustrious history. The Cathedral of Reims is where the coronation of the Kings of France took place and the ancient city of Troyes is a marvel of medieval architecture. And its chalky hillsides are dotted with memories of the Great War.
