CDG airport of Paris is the best destination if you wish to fly from pretty much anywhere to Champagne. Should you land in any of the other Paris airports, there are trains regularly from Gare de l'Est in Paris to Epernay (about 1h15 train ride). Driving to Aÿ from CDG airport takes around 1h45 mins. 
However, the closest airport is Paris-Vatry Airport, which is only at a 45 minutes drive from the house, if you have the possibility to fly there instead. 

At you can find the most suitable way to travel by train to Epernay and Aÿ. From Paris CDG Airport, the fast train TGV leaves from Terminal 2 and goes directly to Reims Champagne-Ardennes in 29 mins.  From there, you can either rent a car, take a taxi (ca €80) or continue by train towards Epernay, via Reims or Reims Maison Blanche. 
NB! If you have to wait longer than 10 - 15 minutes in Reims Maison Blanche, it is recommendable that you instead go from Champagne-Ardennes to Reims Centre and from there to Epernay/Aÿ, as there are no facilities in Maison Blanche at all, just a platform.

There is a bus running between Epernay and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, stopping at 3 locations in the town of Aÿ, making it very easy to get to the house from Epernay. You can also use this bus for visiting the area - it takes approx 10 minutes to reach the city of Epernay or the quaint village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, with its canal marina and high end champagne houses, such as Billecart Salmon and Philipponat. 
As of September 2023, a one way ticket is €1.10 and a one day ticket for the whole area covered by Mouvéobus is €3.00 - both tickets sold on the bus or via the app TixiPASS.

When searching for Maison Marcks Ay Champagne most map apps will find us directly. Otherwise, the address is 6, rue Ritterbandt in Aÿ-Champagne (at the corner of rue Ritterbandt and rue Jules Lobet). 

Parking is free in the whole village and it is generally a very safe town - just like everywhere else though, it is wise not to leave anything visible in the car. There is a small parking across the street with 8 parking spots that you can use free of charge. In the rare case of it being full, do a short drive around town to find another spot and you will still be at close walking distance. For on and off loading you can do a quick stop in the laneway right outside the house and then park the car more appropriately.
