The Experience

This magnificent house was originally built by wine merchants, and it’s been renovated by Elizabeth into a charming B&B with romantic rooms that overlook the garden or the village church.

Elizabeth loves to chat with her guests, and seats them together by the fire in the gorgeous dining room or out on the terrace. Breakfast on baguette, homemade pastries, fruit and vegetable juices, omelette with seasonal herbs and mushrooms. There’s also a candlelit table d’hôte of traditional fare using produce from the garden, each dish accompanied by a different champagne.

Have a drink or read a book in peace in the garden, and stroll into Ay for shops and restaurants – Elizabeth recommends Brasserie Henri IV, a 10-minute walk away, and L’Atelier by Patrick Baillet for superb chocolate and pastries. The largest collection of well-known champagne houses outside of Reims and Epernay are found here, including Bollinger and Moët & Chandon.

This magnificent building is superb, with its rather unique Art Nouveau style in the centre of the village and a recent, high quality renovation. The B&B is warm, and Elizabeth offers guests a caring, personal welcome.

The neighbourhood

The village of Ay is surrounded by forest and vineyards, and has a Gothic church with a richly ornamented façade and an 18th-century baroque organ as well as a number of wineries offering tastings - it's a short walk to the Cité du Champagne museum as well as Villa Collet where jazz and music events are sometimes held too. The train station is a 15-minute walk away with links to Epernay or Reims.


Elizabeth Vollereaux

Elizabeth comes from a family of six generations of wine makers, and her son produces champagne too. She used to run another Sawday's place, Château Les Aulnois in Pierry, before opening the B&B, and loves to welcome guests from around the world.
