The Château Perrier
In the center of Epernay, on the prestigious Avenue de Champagne, the Château Perrier is a must-see among the architectural beauties of the city. Classified as a historical monument since 2013, it now houses the Champagne Wine and Regional Archaeology Museum. Totally renovated during more than 2 years of work, it displays interior decorations of exceptional splendor. If you don’t have time to visit the museum during your weekend or family day, enter the main courtyard and stroll through the magnificent park of the castle, open for free access.
Other remarkable castles are worth a look in the villages around Epernay, in Boursault, Pierry, Louvois or Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. These splendid buildings have known several lives in Champagne and remain today luxurious residences, places of prestige and representation. These castles are closed to the public but you can admire them during a romantic stroll in the heart of the vineyard!
