    Suggested itinerary for this touring holiday:

    Disembark your ferry in Calais and drive to your first hotel, Hotel la Tour du Roy. Situated in historic Vervins, capital of the Thiérache, this lovely spot is characterised by its winding cobbled streets. From here, you’re within easy driving distance of the champagne vineyards and capital, Reims, where you’ll find many of the finest names in the business, including Taittinger, Pommery, Veuve Cliquot and Piper Heidsieck. Discover, too, the hilltop city of Laon, dominated by one of the oldest Gothic cathedrals in France, as well as the delights of the Ardennes, including Charleville-Mézières and the fortress town of Sedan. To facilitate leisurely exploration, we also include two nights at the Hotel de l’Univers, which is just over an hour’s drive from Calais. This four-star hotel is situated right in the heart of Arras, a beautiful city rightfully declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its attractive cobbled squares and impressive Flemish architecture. From here, the vibrant city of Lille is just a 40-minute drive away and its prestigious Palais des Beaux Arts is a must-see. As you travel between your two hotels, stop off at the tiny Musée Départemental Matisse in Le Cateau-Cambrésis, a veritable hidden gem housing some 170 works by the great Henri Matisse. Your return ferry will depart from Calais.
