L'Avenue de Champagne (Champagne Avenue) is in Épernay, the “Capital of champagne” in France.
Its name derives from the presence of many leading champagne producers such as Moët et Chandon, Mercier and De Castellane.
It is said that this avenue is one of the most expensive in the world because of the millions of bottles of champagne stored in the cellars beneath it.
Troyes is a town in the Champagne region of France where many of the houses are half-timbered and date back to the 1500s.
It is also home to “Cat Alley”. Local legend has it that the alley is so narrow that cats jump from roof to roof 🐱!
In Troyes in the Champagne region of France at my home for the next few nights.

Such a gorgeous and peaceful hotel. I can hear birds and the cathedral bells from my room.
