  • OTHE-ARMANCE IN CHAMPAGNE Heritage built in the Pays d'Othe and Armance is a must. Real artistic treasures are to be discovered in the heart of our churches: the statuary of the sixteenth century is declined in all its forms thanks to masters like that of Chaource, author of the burial of the church Saint-Jean-Baptiste or that of Bouilly with Sainte-Marguerite. The stained glass window also has a window of choice in Ervy-le-Châtel or Bérulle and the unique wood rood of the Collegiate Church of Villemaur-sur-Vanne will subdue you. During your walks, you will also discover the wash houses and chapels that made the rural history of yesteryear to hear the echo of the laughter of the washerwomen or prayers nagging processions. Come admire the diversity of flora and fauna born from the meeting of the valleys Bourguignons and the plain Champenoise. In a preserved and authentic rural environment, with a very rich natural and architectural heritage, the tours and tours proposed will surprise you ... "The light, the palette of colors, the beauty of the landscapes, the calm, offer us artists , a haven of serenity conducive to creation. The muses of the Pays d'Othe and Armance give us the inspiration and the creative impulse. "A fruity and tangy taste, the cider of the country of Othe is made from a dozen varieties of apples like l Avrolle, the Flat Nose, or the Cat's Nose, which are grated and pressed. When bottled and racked, the juice ferments for several months. The cider of the Pays d'Othe will tickle your taste buds. The Chaource: A legend lends him a monastic origin on the edge of the fourteenth century at the Abbey of Pontigny. Come and get the secret of making this cheese, celebrated by François I, for its soft cheese, salted with dry salt and floral rind, now benefiting from a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO).
