Grains d’Argent Hotel, Dizy France
by Wendy VanHatten
During our recent stay in the Champagne area of France, we spent a few nights at the Grains d’Argent Hotel. Located just four kilometers from Epernay and only 29 kilometers from Reims, many of the Champagne houses we were visiting were less than 10 minutes away.
Not only was this in an ideal spot, it was an absolutely wonderful hotel. For starters, the hotel is surrounded by vineyards in the small town of Dizy. When we looked out our window, the vineyards of the Hautvillers were what we saw. These vineyards are considered to be the birthplace of Champagne. In fact, the village of Hautvillers, only a few kilometers away, is where Dom Perignon lived and is buried.
Our room, elegant, modern, and functional, was complete with Champagne and wine glasses and a mini fridge to store our wines. The bathroom, again modern and functional, was spacious with a huge walk-in shower.
More than just rooms, there are comfortable gathering spots in multiple places. This worked well for us as we had snacks and Champagne in several of those comfy chairs. The hotel let us use plates and silverware, so it was like having our own space to have our appetizers.
In the mornings, breakfast was offered. Everything we could want to eat before we started out the day visiting Champagne houses was perfect.
This high-quality facility definitely reflects the personality of its creator, Annabelle Hazard. From furniture to the bathroom lighting, this is a first-class hotel.
Located at the exit of Epernay, the Hotel Grains d’Argent is named after the plot of vines in Dizy. It literally means silver grains. I would say that is an appropriate name.
If You Go: Hotel Grains d’Argent is located at 1 All. du Petit Bois, Dizy, France
