Complimentary Champagne!

All bookings of minimum 4 nights include a complimentary case of chilled local champagne. Offer valid from 31st July 2017.

The passionate and talented owners of Château des Temps are not new to châteaux restorations and they were quick to fall in love with this 17th-century historic building which was crying out to be brought back to its former glory.

They were determined to keep its ancient charm whilst bringing in some 21st-century comforts. The result is a beautiful château with many original features, carved marble fireplaces, ancient tapestries and oak floors.

The chateau is set in six hectares of parkland with small streams, bridges, lake and a private heated swimming pool. It enjoys a desirable setting in lovely countryside, in the heart of the unspoilt Champagne region, the Côte de Blanc, in a quiet village with a small supermarket, a chemist and a hairdresser.

Within only a few minutes’ drive, are pretty villages, local producers and vineyards. The town of Sezanne has a wonderful market on Saturdays as well as a big supermarket and other shops. About five minutes drive away is a lovely leisure area, lake, beach, indoor pool and children's play area.

The owners are so passionate about this beautiful region that they have created some interesting and varied tours with a charming English speaking local guide, which guests can book at the château. In addition, they work with a talented local caterer who offers a vast range of gastronomic options and the possibility of cookery lessons.

Good news! This property is available as a Vill’otel

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of the Cote de Blanc region, Chateau des Temps is strategically located in a peaceful typical Champagne village, offering basic amenities such as a small supermarket, a pharmacy and hairdresser.

A short drive from here is a small village that has a lake & beach and playground. This is a great place for the children to have some fun, as well as having a family picnic amongst the striking scenery.

A 10-minutes' drive will take you to the picturesque town of Sezanne with its narrow streets, ancient buildings, Gothic church, covered market hall and several cafes and restaurants. Vineyards can be found both to the South and to the North, giving you the opportunity of visiting many Champagne, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier producers!

The fortified medieval fair town of Provins (50mins) is also well worth a visit: steeped in history, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with 58 listed monuments. Divided into 'Upper' and 'Lower' town, it is dotted by subterranean passages, fortified gates, quaint streets, making it a must for those fascinated by times past.

Likewise, another interesting medieval site is Troyes, located approximately one hour from the chateau. You will be enchanted by the lovely old buildings and by its excellent local cuisine. 'Outlet’ shopping is available at nearby Pont Saint Marie.

To top it all, the gorgeous and unmissable Champagne producing villages of Avize, Vertus and Cramant are just 40 minutes away!

A picturesque drive across beautiful scenery of about 30 minutes takes you up to Epernay. A bit further afield, one can visit the town of Reims and the Montagnes de Reims with its wealth of quaint villages and vineyards.

Region

The people of Champagne have a lot to be proud about. Not only do they produce one of the world’s most celebrated fizzy drinks, the region was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2015, meaning it’s an even greater destination for foodies and culture vultures alike. But while it’s right at the heart of the country, the Champagne region offers more than an authentic drink – as our travel guide shows, there’s a little something for everyone if you’re thinking of booking one of our luxury villas and chateaux in Champagne.

  • Amazing Property!

    Posted by Isabelle on 22/09/2018

    This is a true gem. A beautifully restored Château. We immediately felt at home and barely left it. The surrounding park is vast and you could smell peppermint with every step. Magnificent. The rooms are very spacious with excellent beds. Frans is a wonderful person and host. We couldn’t have found a more beautiful, relaxing place for our stay.
