Great apartment in a great location. Easy parking on the street right outside, and a very easy walk to the town centre,champagne houses, restaurants, shops, and supermarket. Good size apartment for our party of four adults, nicely fitted with everything we needed for a comfortable four-day stay. Beautifully warm inside even in the very cold December weather. The hosts were charming and helpful with advice and suggestions for visits. Of course, we just had to visit Champagne Lemaire at Villers-sous-Châtillon - just a 20 minutes drive - to sample some excellent champagne and buy a couple of cases for later. The Habits de Lumiere festival was fantastic, and definitely needs a return visit - hopefully next year. A
We enjoyed 4 nights at this gite. It is 5 - 10 minutes walk from the centre of Epernay and was very clean and quite well appointed. The outside belies it's appearance inside, located as it is in a commercial building opposite a school. Once inside, it is a light filled space thanks to numerous skylights. There is a king sized bed in the main bedroom and two singles which can be made into a king size in the second room.
Some of the furnishings are a little tired and some attention needs to be paid to minor repairs and the crockery could be replaced as many items are missing and mismatched. However, overall it is very good value and a very pleasant apartment.
This apartment is really fantastic for a holiday and suits families, couples or a group of friends! It is spacious and well equipped with a lovely terrace big enough for dining. We stayed 18 nights and had everything we needed. It is well located in Epernay, walking distance to Avenue de Champagne, restaurants, cafes, small supermarket and boulengeries. It is also very well located for day trips out of town to many small villages in the region if you have a car. It is also walking distance to the trian station or Office de Tourisme that organise trips. The owners, Marin and Sebastien, were great and as we stayed for a few weeks organized additional cleaning for us. They also invited us to the family Champagne House, Lemaire, for tasting their beautiful champagnes. I will definitely return.
This comfortable, well equipped 2 bedroom townhouse/apartment is conveniently located within walking distance of all the attractions Epernay has to offer. Easy to get to and also located close to the railway station if you want to use the train. Sebastien was an enthusiastic and helpful host - with suggestions about Champagne House visits, restaurants and other activities. Being part of a small Champagne House he was able to give us some good insights into the culture of the region. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this town and would recommend QV51. Added bonus was the outdoor terrace!
First of all we adore the appartement: it is nice, clean, well equipped and full of light. The owners, Marin and Sébastien, were very nice and they did everything to make our stay nice and comfortable. They even provided a list with adresses and phonenumbers of the local doctor, apothecry, dentist etcetera. Personally I was enthousiastic about the bed. Being two meter, this was finally a bed in France in which I could really lay my feet in the bed!!! The appartement is situated in a good place: everything is about two minutes walking: the shops, the bakery, a garage, a fuelpump, nice restaurants (Le Theatre, La Sardaigna, le table de Kobus). Further, Épernay is an excellent place to stay: you are in the middle of the Champagne-region. Reims is about half an hour away (great churches!), you can explore the region by riding through "la montagne de Reims" (beautifull landscape). But we can also recommand a visit to Suippes where you will find a small but good museum about the battles in the Marne. We even saw some remains of the trenches at the "Ferme de Navarin". Sébastien and Marin offered us a visit to the champagnehouse of LeMaire (Sébastien is the son of the owner) and it was absolutely great: with great enthiousiasm he explained almost everything about the wines we tasted. In short: we had a great week in QV51!
A fantastic week spent in the apartment in Epernay. The owners Sebastian and Marin are so helpful and friendly and helped us with all our enquiries and questions. Our stay was baking hot weather and we had an issue with the air con, within 24 hours they came to our rescue with a new unit.
The flat itself is lovely and very well furnished, although do note that towels and bbq are at an additional cost so have some cash to hand when you pick up keys (€3.50 per towel and €20 bbq per stay.)
The apartment is very handy for town, just a few minutes walk from the pretty square and the avenue de champagne. Definitely will be returning next year! Thanks!!
