Château de Courcelles is located inside an historical triangle, formed by the towns of Reims, Laon and Soissons: it is about 25 Kms. from the latter and is approximately an hour from Paris. Its architecture is of the purest Louis XIV style, built between 1690-1694 towards the end of the long reign of the Sun King, builder of Versailles. Château de Courcelles comprises 13 bedrooms and 5 suites, a gourmet restaurant, a bar, a reading-room furnished in the XVIII century style and a terrace where one may be served meals.

In fact, guests at Château de Courcelles will have friendly service, comfortable, individually styled rooms and exquisite haute cuisine accompanied by a long list of exceptional champagnes. Cross the threshold of this magnificent XVIIth century château, set in the midst of an enchanting parkland, and you will understand why Racine, La Fontaine, the Dumas, father and son, and Jean Cocteau (who designed the staircase banister) fell under its spell.

About Reims

Reims (pronounced Rahns), an ancient Roman city, was important at the time Caesar conquered Gaul.

French kings came here to be crowned, and it's said that the French nation was born here in A.D. 498. Joan of Arc escorted Charles VII here in 1429, kissing the silly man's feet.

But don't let this ancient background mislead you: As you approach Reims, you'll pass through prefabricated suburbs that look like apartment house blocks in Eastern Europe. There are gems in Reims, including the cathedral, of course, but you must seek them out.

Most visitors come to Reims because it's the center of a wine-growing district whose bubbly is present at celebrations all over the world. The city today, with a population of 185,000, is filled with swank restaurants, ritzy champagne houses, large squares, and long, tree-lined avenues. The champagne bottled here is the lightest and subtlest in flavor of the world's wines. Make an effort to linger, exploring the vineyards and wine cellars, the Gothic monuments, and the battlefields.
