An idilic spot just outside of Reims, where old opulence meets new luxury and combines to create a dream home away from home.
Le Clos des Terres Soudées sits in on the western edge of Reims, just a short 15 minute drive from Reims train station.
This beautifully restored home has been in the Coulon family for 8 generations, its newly designed interiors thoughtfully reflect its history. The perfect combination of vintage designer furniture, modern fixtures and a unique collection of 19th century portrait paintings give this small 5 bedroom hotel a real WOW factor.
You wont come across too many people in this sleepy Champagne village, but when you do you will be greeted with a warm smile and bonjour!
We slept in the La Vignerie (the vineyard) room, with plenty of space to move around the room included a small seating area with a table, and a large modern bathroom with separate toilet. This tastefully decorated bedroom housed a set of large charming French shutter clad windows, which allowed in plenty of daylight and framed a view of the small rear garden. The varnished wooden floor was softened with scattered sheepskin rugs, but the stand out feature in this room was the beautiful sculpted vine roots at the head of the ample sized double bed. Extra features included free wifi, flat screen television and luxury toiletries.
Food & Drink
The hotels restaurant is housed in a beautifully converted barn which is accessible from the house via a small hallway. The menu reflects the composition of the hotel, serving both traditional and contemporary dishes accompanied by the fine wines from Domain Roger Coulon. Unfortunately we did not eat at the restaurant as it was closed during our stay due to staffing issues, however we did get to take a peek at the last remaining piece of the original wine cellars, which was impressively displayed through a glass door in the floor.
