Frequently overlooking the valley, this itinerary affords wonderful views and introduces walkers to the region’s rich heritage.
Leaving from Epernay, follow the right bank of the Marne river and return via the left bank.

The Pinot Meunier vines stretch as far as the eye can see and villages, châteaux and churches are the many milestones to be reached along the tourist trails around the Marne. Leaving Epernay and heading in the direction of Reims you will take higher ground towards Champillon and its unspoilt view over the start of the Côte des Blancs’ hilly landscape.

 

 

The last stop before you return to Epernay is Pierry, a village that has preserved a wonderful collection of properties and stately homes from the 18th century.
