The Marne Valley

Vineyards and landscapes along the water

The Marne Valley offers a variety of landscapes where water, forest and vineyards meet. Villages appear in the heart of the vineyard hillsides or hide in the Flagot Valley. Churches, priories, castles crowned with forests are the pride of the inhabitants of the valley. Many sites reveal the secrets and know-how of the Champagne region. The imprint of the Great War also marks this territory, like the Memorial of Dormans, a site of memory not to be missed in Champagne.

The bucolic Champagne

The Surmelin Valley

Marked by its authenticity, its land of crops and pastures, punctuated by forests and ponds, the Surmelin Valley offers a bucolic landscape.

A journey through time that will surprise you.
