80% vineyard and 20% tiny, natural, loveable campsite – the perfect ratio.

As any red-nosed soul will expound between hiccups, France has a somewhat well-deserved reputation for its wine. It produces some of the most esteemed inebriants in the world, rendering a certain dedicated exploration into the subject essential. A pilgrimage of gratitude could begin with the most famous region, producing the most famous wine – Champagne. Of all the tipples in existence, none other comes close for sparking the imagination or exuding sheer glamour.

The Perron family have spent 110 years and five generations of history in the pursuit of champagne, working their business through biblical upheavals of war and pestilence. Marilyn Perron recently had the idea of evolving oenological tourism for the Aube area and opened the gloriously intimate and ecologically clean Sauleraie – a campsite with a dual purpose.

In the first instance it is a convenient retreat for those wishing to explore the Aube area’s forests, lakes, plains, and rolling hills by bicycle or on foot. A short walk brings you to Meurville – a beautiful village nestled between vineyard-topped slopes, where more than a dozen families make champagne. In the main square by the church a tourist map provides a label-by-label guide around the village producers, each virtually within staggering distance of each other. A little way out of town it’s possible to walk in the vineyards themselves, or take the Champagne Tourist Route that winds between them. Workers harvest the grapes from late August onwards, making this a good time to visit. The second purpose of La Sauleraie is as an approved bird sanctuary with a small wild lake and nesting boxes for every winged creature, from predators to prey. Wild ducks and geese frequent the lake, and the introduction of pollinating prairie plants and shrubs is under way in order to attract a wider pool of species.

Settled around the lake, the campsite has a rural feel without being disconnected. Vineyards and fields creep up the slopes and there are mature weeping willows, pines, and hedges softening the space. Nature-lovers have been well catered for and a limit of six tents on one side of the lake ensures that it feels spacious even when full.

If the weather is appalling, or a little more luxury is desired after sipping bubbly, the Perrons have built three themed log cabins. These fustes sleep up to four people and are sympathetic to the environment, with sheepskin insulation and vegetal roofs. Small and perfectly formed, each has its own features and comfortable decoration. The Tsukiyo cabin has a basin and a small fountain outside; Salama has mature pine trees and hammocks; while Kalyani enjoys a terrace. Although these cabins share the camping loo block and lack a kitchen sink, breakfast can be provided and a stay of five nights or more will find you rewarded with a bottle of champagne.

Everyone who visits the site is invited into the rather grand family cellar and tasting-room in Meurville. Here you will find out more about the Champagne Tourist Route, be introduced to their own brands of fine wine, discover how the drink is made and why so much struggle surrounds its production. The variables that affect a vineyard during a year are genuinely staggering. Understanding this undoubtedly aids appreciation and enjoyment of the different vintages.

Perhaps the most memorable aspect of staying with the Perrons is the opportunity to be guided through the region by such a dedicated, respected champagne producer. The Perron passion for the business shines through. Chin-chin.



Very clean tiled shower block, including 2 wash basin, 2 good showers, 2 washing cubicles, 1 disabled cubicle with shower/toilet, and facilities for washing up.

Cycle shelter: Cycle hire possible through the campsite.

Troyes, capital city of the Aube department is recommended for a visit and is only 30 miles (50 km) from Meurville. Numerous museums and medieval buildings pack the narrow streets of this historical city. During the second week of June it hosts various Champagne Fairs.

The Champagne Tourist Route is a 373 miles (600-km) signposted circular trip through the beautiful "Region du Champagne" and  tourist offices can point you in the direction of champagne producers with cellars open to the public. Running between Bar-sur-Seine and Bar-sur-Aube the trail leads through Meurville and can be picked up there.

For cultural visits in Côte-des-Bar: the cistercian Abbaye of Clairvaux funded in the 12th century by St-Bernard, the cristal museum in Bayel (ex Cristallerie Royale de Champagne funded under the reign of Louis the XIV), the house of the impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir in Essoyes, the Memorial Charles de Gaulle in Colombey-les-deux-Eglises, the amusement park Nigloland.

About 19 miles (30 km) north-west of Meurville is the "Lac d’Orient". It is the largest one out of the three man made lake in the Orient Forest Regional Natural Park,  once home of the Knights Templar. It includes two marinas and three sand beaches, the Espace Faune (wildlife area), an educational farm in Champs-sur-Barse, a tree climbing park in Lusigny-sur-Barse, an ecomuseum in Brienne-La-Vieille and a Napoleon museum in Brienne-le-Château.

The Aube has countryside of gentle rolling hills and picturesque views, it is a lovely place to take a walk or hire a mountain bike and explore. If  you travel by car, you will pass many villages where you will want to stop and relax.

Switch off the satnav, leave with a full tank of petrol, and see where it takes you.

Food & Drink

Meurville is a village of 180 inhabitants. The nearest quality restaurants are Le Cellier in Bar-sur-Aube, 5½ miles (9 km) away, Le Moulin du Landion in Dolancourt, 4½ miles (7½ km) away, La Chaumière in Arsonval, 6 miles (10 km) away, Le Val Moret in Magnan (15km) and Marilyn Perron’s personal recommendation La Petite Auberge in Arsonval, 6 miles (10 km) away, or Au Petit Bonheur de Fontaine, 6 miles (10 km) away, which serve both typical local food.

Perfect for breaking the journey to the Alps with a dog! .

Relaxed and friendly site in a very quiet area of rolling hills.Lovely dog walks from the site ( and also the village) through the vineyards and mixed woodland. The champagne tastes wonderful and the hamper was perfect for supper, with plenty left over for lunch the next day!

Lovely place

It’s set in beautiful countryside, the site is small but pitches are spacious surrounded by fields and trees; it’s quiet and restful. The owners were very friendly and I enjoyed the champagne tasting.

Excellent stopover

We stopped here on our way to the Ardeche, small site with friendly owners and good facilities. Enjoyed the champagne tasting event. We were very jealous of the couple next door who had ordered the food hamper which looked very good value for money, will definitely book this when we stay again.

Lovely quiet site and tasting experience

This is a lovely small campsite with good quality and clean toilet and wash bloke. Pitches are very private and much larger than some other places. Would really recommend trying out their champagne at one of their tastings. We will be going back and next time will be booking the hamper!

I stayed here en route to South of France and on the way home. A lovely village and fantastic campsite - very small and quiet with great views. Don't miss out on the hamper - it was wonderful. Home cooked with a bottle of champagne, I can't recommend highly enough!

I stayed en route to the South of France and on the way back again. Lovely village and the campsite is wonderful - very small and with great views. The hamper is amazing, don't miss it! Home-cooked food and a bottle of champagne. Can't recommend highly enough!

Lovely site, nice people, very clean washing facilities. Picnic box was wonderful.

We thought the champagne was good. The village is tiny with many outlets for champagne. Very good find.

Beautiful, friendly campsite and delicious champagne

We stayed for one night on our way to Morzine, we are so pleased we did. A small, quiet, very friendly campsite in a stunningly beautiful area. We arrived in time for the champagne tasting and cycled from the campsite to the cellar (5mins fast cycle). Clean facilities with extra cleaning equipment to use after you have been in. I recommend ordering a hamper, ours had the most delicious freshly baked tart, delightful. We would definitely come back and urge others to book and enjoy this campsite. Thank you

Charming, quiet site in beautiful surroundings

Quite by chance we found this site and booked one night en route, then had to book a second because we loved it so much. Shaded pitches, lovely shared facilities (shower and toilet block, but also boules court and barbecue chimenea), yes it's next to a road but it's a very quiet one and virtually no traffic after 9pm. Staying the second day meant we could take in the champagne tasting which was delightful and thoroughly recommended. Would absolutely stay again, next time in one of the fustes (log cabins) which look great value.

Champagne & Cycling

A wonderful night spent at this campsite. We had the hamper - quiche, salad, champagne and apple pie and also went for champagne tasting at 6pm. The owners are very friendly and the campsite is a short walk out of the pretty village. We had our bikes and spent a fun morning cycling round the lanes. It's quite hilly and we got a little wet. The campsite has good facilities and was very quiet when we were there. Of our 14 night stay in France this experience was one of our best.

Idyllic, picturesque, perfect

We stayed on the campsite for 4 nights mid September. It is located just outside of the village at the foot of hills covered in champagne vines. The site is completed gated which makes it child friendly, there are also swings and slides for them to play on. Facilities are basic but clean and well looked after. In an evening the Perron-Beauvineau family offer a tasting of their champagne in the village which is highly recommended. If you want to really get off the grid and spend your evenings under the stars then this is a perfect campsite with no artificial lighting at night.

Lovely stopover

Just returned from a 2 night stay here and would go back, particularly as a stopover to/from the south. It's worth mentioning that arriving as close to 6pm will probably ensure that you can have the cave explanation/tasting, whereas arriving later (as we did) will mean that you may have to hang around a bit to be shown to the campsite (and you can't get in to the site initially without being taken in). We went back for the full tasting/explanation the next evening. There was no deposit required for the key fob that was previously mentioned in reviews. It's a small site, immediately next to a rural road - so be under no impression that it will be quiet if you visit during the grape harvest - during the night was ok, but they start early and finish late... Well worth getting the hamper - supposedly for 2, it fed 2 adults and 2 children on the first evening and we were eating various leftovers as part of meals over the next few days. Delicious too. Facilities were clean, there is no trampoline now, and the animal is missing from the spring, but otherwise plenty of play equipment at both the campsite and the cave/office. Any problems were dealt with in a friendly and efficient way, so all in all felt relaxing and positive.

Great champagne tasting and hamper

Booked on the day and arrived late but the hosts gave us champagne tasting experience. Booked a hamper and the food was fantastic and home cooked. Tiny site and great customer service.
Aug 25, 2018 by Julie

Thoughtful and well kept.

We stayed in a 'fuste' as a stopover here and would highly recommend. The champagne tasting on arrival was fascinating and a walk up through the vineyards afterwards in the evening sunshine very peaceful. The whole site has a creative, aesthetic feel, all very well looked after. Each fuste has it's own character and individual landscaped area. We woke up with the sun shining on the wooden walls inside and enjoyed the breakfast brought to us on the patio. We missed a kettle but made use of the filter coffee machine provided - not a problem for a short stay.

Like camping in a secret garden

We stopped here twice going to the Atlantic sea and coming back. It’s calm, private, easy and simple. Even some of the interior is old, you can see that there are so many little things being improved every day. For sure we will keep this place in mind and stop by again one day !

Rural location

A beautifully located campsite within the vineyards. A rural location with the majority of traffic on the quiet roads being tractors! Despite this, so much to do in easy reach - swimming, kayaking and cycling at the nearby lakes; the beautiful old town of Troyes which has restaurants galore; and, of course; tasting of the local champagnes. It provided us with the perfect restful holiday.

Idyllic spot in rural France

We stayed at Champagne Perron-Beauvineau for one night en route to the Alps from Calais. The hosts are very welcoming, with the champagne cellar tour being an added bonus! We were lucky enough to have the campsite to ourselves with perfectly clean shower and toilet facilities. Thanks!

Great start to holidays

This was the first time we had stayed in  a cool camping recommended site and couldn't have been more impressed. I was travelling with my boyfriend in our vw camper and used the campsite to break up our journey to the Alps.

We were warmly welcomed by the owners who were really helpful in recommending places to visit and providing us with really useful maps (we were especially interested in biking and this area is perfect with a large number of marked routes).

Once at the campsite we were treated to being all on our own for the first night which was a nice surprise as I was expecting it to be busy having been in the book. The site is only small but the pitch sizes are ample and the setting is very pretty surrounded by vineyards.

I was surprised to see the review below commenting about the road yes the campsite is next to a road but it is quiet and did not impact at all on our stay. There are no shops within walking distance but it is only a short drive to the nearest town which has a number of chain stores. 

As a cherry on the top for this site we were given a complimentary tasting and education on the owners champagne business in his cellar at his house -how many campsites offer this! I have to say we were both naive when it came to champagne but Fabrice talked us through all the different types and what to look for we even walked away with a bottle for the journey (we would have had lost more to take home had it not been the first few days of holiday) though there was no pressure nor obligation to buy; Fabrice was fantastic.

In summary I cannot recommend this location enough-Great biking roads, and lakes 20 minutes away which are great for swimming (Lac d'orient).  Yes there are no bars and restaurants within walking distance but get yourself some bbq food and relax in this tranquil setting sipping on some of Fabrice's families lovely Champagne.

Camping Les Perron-Beauvineau - Aug 2014

We stayed for the first 2 nights of our 2 week camping holiday in France and found this site to be friendly and relaxed.  Once we had worked out that the actual site was a few minutes drive away from the reception, we were greeted by the family owners and shown to the site. The facilities are basic (only 1 shower and 2 toilets) but they clean look relatively new. 

We didn't find that there was lots to do in the area which is the only reason we wouldn't rush back, not because of the site.

Beautifu,l clean and quiet

I read the reviews left by other visitors and wondered what they had been expecting and if they had even bothered to look at what this campsite offered before booking. This site was exactly what we were after a beautiful quiet spot to break up our journey from Northern France to the Alps. The site has an excellent clean shower block, picnic tables a BBQ, and grass not gravel plots. The surrounding area is beautiful and the owners helpful and friendly.....not sure what they previous reviews were after but if it was a pool and all night entertainment they should have done their homework.

Top site!

Real Champagne

First a caveat to say that The Real Champagne Company stocks Perron-Beauvineau champagne, so we could be construed as being biased as we have a professional relationship with the family.

However as we have just stayed at the campsite over this bank holiday weekend, we feel we should say our bit.


The campsite is right beneath the vines very close to the village of Meurville. There aren't any shops in the village but Bar-sur-Aube is a 10-minute car drive away and there are all the amenities you could wish for in Bar-sur-Aube. There are at least a dozen champagne houses in this one village of Meurville, so you could quite easily spend a day idly champagne tasting in the village without having to drive anywhere. Many other beautiful little villages are very accessible for other tastings if you'd like to branch further afield.

The road running past the site is the equivalent of a B-road in the UK. It is close to the site and some drivers go past pretty fast, and you also have to bear in mind that it is an agricultural area, so you will have tracters going past. However the road is not that busy and after about 9 in the evening we hardly heard anything - certainly not during the night. The area is generally very peaceful.


There are 3 very nicely done-out lodges (we had a tent but peered through the windows, as they were unoccupied) with beds, sofas, chairs, tables, microwaves, electricity etc. The rest of the site is taken up by perhaps 6-10 good-sized pitches, perhaps with a very slight slope towards the road, a central car-parking area and a very nice pond. It is not a ditch at all - the water is crystal clear and you can see fish swimming around in the reeds. You can hear the sound of running water from the stream running through the pond, which is what keeps it so clear.

There are plenty of trees and lots of interesting bird life. There are the usual flies and midges but the birds and bats seem to keep them at bay!


The toilet/shower block and dish- and clothes-washing facility was spotlessly clean when we got there. Nice hot showers and water to do the dishes - what more do you want when you're camping?

In summary, the site is fine. The only downside might be the proximity to the road but for us the beauty of the spot, the nature, the facilities, the proximity to the ammenities etc etc more than made up for that. The Perron-Beauvineau champagnes are also excellent champagnes and Fabrice the son of the family - an interesting guy, being a Doctor of Philosophy and an expert wine-maker - will be more than happy to take you through them at leisure. This is what we feel sums up the real Champagne experience.

Les Perron-Beauvineau

I totally agree with the first reviewer! We managed 3 nights, never again. The place lacked atmosphere and the owner not at all friendly in fact she looked petrified. They seriously need to rethink how they present themselves. It’s more of a sideline for the family business and not a proper campsite at all. Having no one at hand was very disconcerting and you were left feeling very vunerable. Please Cool camping remove this one from your website and book it’s not very good. Your other sites are much better.

Les Perron-Beauvineau

Awful. We stayed at Les Perron-Beauvineau in August 2011, on the basis of the Cool Camping recommendation. We are a family of 2 adults and 3 small children. I had booked several nights but we ended up staying only one, feeling that the loss of our deposit was worth it. Reasons are as follows: The camping area is behind an electrically-operated gate next to a main road. The road is not particularly busy, but the proximity of the tents to the road when a car does go past, means that you certainly do not feel you are in a rural idyll. Further, all the pitches are set around a gravelled roundabout for car access, so if it hadn’t been for the empty pitches, there would have been very limited grassy areas for play. The "lake"; is a fenced-off ditch, over which there is a closed-off bridge. The only good thing about the landscaping of the site was the trampoline and sand pit. To get into the village, you have to use the road - it would be a long and dangerous walk with young children - putting an end to our hopes of a tipple at the cave and a short journey to bed. In fact, to get anywhere, you have to access the main road - and use the electronic key, for which you pay a hefty deposit. The toilet block is fine and kept clean. However, it is operated by combination lock, which I found inconvenient when I was carrying toiletries and/or small children. It also has no windows and I found it to be eerie when I was inside alone. The whole ’cave’ experience, we found to be very strange. There was little atmosphere and certainly no welcoming host eager to share their love of champagne. The play area outside the cellar was run down and covered with thistles, with a large dog roaming around - not child-friendly at all. When I went in to explain our early departure, the owner was surprised and reluctantly gave me some money back but our one-night stay had still cost me nearly 50 Euros. We had come to Perron-Beauvineau from another Cool Camping recommendation where we had enjoyed a fantastic stay so I do know that Cool Camping can get it right. However, the description of this site is far removed from reality and a big disappointment. I would discourage anyone from going here - particularly families with small children - especially when there are so many other lovely campsites in this wonderful area of France.
