About Reims

The capital of France’s legendary Champagne region, Reims has long been viewed by travellers as the final stop for authentic French flavours before Calais. This striking historic city is, however, a rich destination in its own right. Sure to thrill heritage enthusiasts as well as keen foodies, Reims boasts a number of excellent accommodation options, fit for a range of tastes and budgets. Whether you’re dreaming of a B&B hidden in the vineyards or a château with a Michelin-starred restaurant, our pick of the best places to stay in Reims has it all.

Reims’ most famous landmark is undoubtedly the Gothic Cathedral Notre-Dame de Reims. An imposing 13th-century edifice which hosted the coronations of French sovereigns for centuries, the cathedral is a must-see for anyone with an interest in history. The Palais de Tau, formerly the residence of the Bishops of Reims, is another heritage gem. Reims was on the frontline of both the First and Second World Wars, and much of the city was unfortunately destroyed. Twentieth-century rebuilding has led to wide boulevards and plenty of Art Deco buildings, many of which are also lovely. For further insight into Reims’ Second World War past, head to the Museum of the Surrender.

No visit to Reims can be complete without guided tours and tastings of the world’s top Champagne houses. Whether you’re tempted to savour Veuve Cliquot, Taittinger or some of the countless other terrific tipples which have become synonymous with celebration, you’re in the right place. Venture beyond the city to wind your way along the stunning 45-mile Montagne de Reims Champagne Route on foot or by bicycle. Return to the best places to stay in Reims for sensational cuisine and a glass or two of the good stuff!

The Best Places to Stay in Reims

For an Intimate B&B

  • Le Clos des Terres Soudées boast just five indulgent guest rooms, perfect for a romantic escape. Tucked within the vienyards of Vrigny, less than 10kms from Reims, this family-owned B&B oozes romantic charm. Owned by wine-makers, it's ideal for vineyard explorations.

For Foodies

  • L'Assiette Champenoise in Reims is, in many ways, the ultimate foodie destination. Boasting three Michelin stars, Arnaud Lallement's restaurant showcases innovative seasonal cuisine and offers a seriously impressive wine list. Rooms are contemporary in style, with big free-standing tubs and replicas of iconic French paintings on the walls behind the beds. There's a superb pool, too.
  • Domaine Les Crayères is the stuff of dreams. A gorgeous château close to Reims' cathedral with 20 luxurious rooms and suites featuring antique pieces and garden views, this is one for romantics. Chef Philippe Mille heads two-Michelin-starred Le Parc, as well as more relaxed Le Jardin brasserie. Foodies will be thrilled.

For Rural Luxury

  • Château de Sacy is a beautiful hideaway amongst the vines in picturesque Sacy. Glamorous interiors invite couples and friends to unwind in elegant white-on-white guest rooms with vineyards views, or to gather in the hip bar for champagne tastings. Chef Andy Bouglé's gourmet cuisine champions regional produce in a light-filled space. Glorious.


  • If you'd prefer a self-catering option, we suggest that you visit our online partner Booking.com.


  • Fly to Paris Charles de Gaulle and hop aboard the TGV from Paris to Reims. The journey should take just an hour by train.
  • Champagne is brilliant for a road trip! Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car.
  • Visit between June and September for the warmest weather (peaking at around 25°C). The harvest tends to take place in September — times vary slightly for each village — and you'll find that this is a hugely exciting but busy time to visit. April-May and October tend to be quieter and cooler.
