à propos des hôtes : Cécile et Romain, couple de propriétaires de l'immeuble BnB Au 1894

Cécile & Romain

We are a local family, born in Champagne and passionate about our effervescent region! Cécile handles the organizational aspect with her calm and methodical approach, while Romain has the creative ideas and makes them real thanks to his manual skills.

We wear many different hats: for several years now, we’ve been renting accommodation for anyone who wishes to discover our beautiful region, and we also specialize in wine-related tourism in collector vehicles with our agency My Vintage Tour Company.

We do everything to make sure that the people staying in our apartments feel right at home. There is so much offer and choice in this field but we felt we needed to put human interaction back at the heart of it and invite people to take their time in this world where everything goes so fast.

Au 1894 is a building full of character that embodies our values.

The house Au 1894

The name came naturally! This house was built in 1894: its beams, walls and roof all date back to that year. We are committed to preserving them as much as possible to keep their history intact.

Built by a family from Avize, it was a multipurpose building, and a rumor says it even hosted the town’s movie theater in the 1950s. Then it became part of a viticultural property owned by a local family and its traditional cellar contained thousands of champagne bottles.

We’ve been the owners for almost 20 years now and have hosted many students of Avize’s famous viticulture high school. Now, it allows us to welcome Family, Friends, and Travelers from all over the globe.

The French Ministry of Tourism awarded this house a three-star rating as a vacation rental.

All the furniture is second-hand.

All the lights in the apartment have been replaced by LED energy-saving light bulbs.

The paint used on the walls is organic and with an eco-label.
