Vacation rentals in Reims
If you are looking for a cosy holiday apartment in Reims, you will find it especially in the historic centre. Not only do you have the opportunity to pitch your tents in the shade of Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral and Porte de Mars, but you can also take advantage of the walking distance to numerous sights and restaurants. Thanks to the closely interlinked bus network, you can also reach the sights outside the city centre without having to drive your own car.A vacation rental on the edge of the Montagne de Reims Nature Park
For those who like it a little quieter and want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the lively city, a finca in the outlying districts of La Neuvillette, Croix Cordier and Murigny Sud is ideal. Especially for nature lovers, the modernly furnished accommodation in the southwest of Reims is ideal, because the Parc Naturel Regional de la Montagne de Reims, only a stone's throw away, invites you to extensive exploration tours with child and cone.

Those who are interested in history will get their money's worth in the royal city of France.

Over the summer, which lures with average maximum temperatures around the 25 degree mark, the best travel time stretches into October.Regular events
