Some new additions to our getting here page saw us enjoying overnight stays at the Hotel les Berceaux in the centre of Epernay, and the Auberge de Moissons in Matougues, just outside of Chalons-en Champagne. Both have a good restaurants, nice rooms with en-suite facilities, family rooms and dog-friendly accommodation. The Berceaux is in the centre of town and ideal for visiting a champagne house or two if you have the time. Our journeys to and from Serre Chevalier are always an enjoyable part of our holiday. I wonder where we could try next time. Your suggestions are welcome.
This summer we have used the SeaFrance ferry quite regularly, and can recommend the Brasserie on board as a good lunch stop. We will be back to the Eurotunnel for the winter, having enough Tesco Clubcard deals for a couple of free crossings. Eurotunnel is great if you are travelling with your dog, as you can stay in the car with them.
