Champagne-Ardenne

The Champagne-Ardenne region consists of 4 departments: Ardennes, Marne, Aube and Haute Marne.
The river Meuse meanders through it. To the south is the Champagne, France's northernmost wine region, famous for its sparkling wines that are the only ones in the world that are allowed to bear the name "Champagne". In the north of the region are the French Ardennes, a green area where you can enjoy a peaceful holiday and that is easy to reach from the Netherlands. The Marne department has many lakes, including Lac du Der Chantecoq, the largest artificial lake in Europe. Because of the many possibilities (sailing, surfing, fishing, boating, etc.) is very popular with boaters and birdwatchers.
