TOWN PRESENTATION

Villers-sous-Châtillon: small village of Champagne, where the majority of people grow grapes and sell his champagne. Located in the middle of the vineyard in the Marne valley, surrounded by vineyards and wooded hills.

The dream for hikers: the paths and trails of vines in the sun, see a deer jumps gracefully on the edge of the woods, or a family of rabbits scamper in the calm and silence of nature ...

And what do they eat in Champagne? The famous "hotpot Champenoise" soft cooked pork with a long flavorful vegetables: cabbage, carrots, leeks, turnips ... each family has its secret recipe ... It is eaten with a touch of mustard, accompanied by the broth. A winter delight!


SIGHTSEEING

The village had its benefactor: Viscount Chenizot Guyot, a contemporary of the French Revolution, had land and a castle, and he liked to reside between two trips to Paris, where he held high office. Surprised by the Revolution of 1789, he owed his survival to the villagers who have dressed in peasant is protected in his flight abroad. On his return, in gratitude, Viscount Guyot Chenizot made many donations of land, and founded a hospice, a small school and many other benefits. The castle was destroyed by bombing in World War I (1914/1918), but a tower still exists and can be seen from the church square.

On the side of the church lies the tomb of Viscount benefactor, built by the villagers as a sign of gratitude and thanks. A plaque commemorating its benefits has also been placed inside the church.

A cooler from the 18th or 19th century sleeps all within ... Street of the Ice! Consisting of a mound of earth, a dark corridor leads to a gigantic hole, which greatly fueled the fears of local children ... We think it was once used to store blocks of ice, brought in carts, at a time when refrigerators did not exist. The corridor is now walled up.


EVENTS AND CELEBRATIONS

The best movie of the year: the Christmas lights! They begin the first weekend of December and ends on Sunday of the Epiphany. Many villagers decorate their houses.

Then, St Vincent, Patron Saint of Winemakers, January 22, brings together the winemakers in every village around the festivities are "pulls" the club St Vincent, stick of wood carved and decorated, to know the winemaker who will have custody of (his home), year-round. It then gathers at the church where a special Mass is said, then we drink the cup of friendship, and the new winemaker for service must be made in a small barrel decorated his new wine from the grapes before, and taste the whole congregation. Then, a dinner dance closed the day.

In September, the harvest! Village streets come alive ten to fifteen days. The presses turn, the sweet wine flowing, the corks pop, and the atmosphere is very cheerful. You can share a meal of grape, lively and noisy, but so much fun!


ATTRACTIONS, LEISURES AND ACTIVITES AROUND

Featured: Route Touristique du Champagne! It winds throughout the Marne, and through vineyards and pretty villages. A stop at Hautvillers, birthplace of Champagne, where the monk Dom Perignon, a contemporary of King Louis XIV, discovered the foam of champagne. Another stop at Chatillon-sur-Marne, where the imposing statue of Pope Urban II, a native of the village, blessed the valley arms raised. In fact, he blessed the first crusade in 1095. The curiosity is that the statue is hollow, and a spiral staircase located inside the body, leads to a small window in the arms of the Pope there, very nice view over the surrounding countryside!

Very beautiful Romanesque and Gothic churches scattered throughout the villages.

In Epernay, 12 km, visit the Champagne cellars, dug into the chalk, is very appreciated.
