Luxury Barge Tour on beautiful Nivernais & Burgundy canals 

This smart, renovated hotel barge cruises the Nivernais Canal, through beautiful Burgundy, thought by many to be the most beautiful region of France. Round every bend the vista changes, as the waterway weaves through the heart of Burgundy’s beautiful scenery. The owners began cruising in 1976, and their experience is evident from the attention to detail on board. The crew of six maintain the warm yet professional atmosphere, so appreciated by guests.

The barge accommodates twelve passengers in eight en-suite cabins, with an attractive saloon and inviting sundeck. On board, guests experience the gastronomy of France with fine regional wines and delicious gourmet meals. The week’s itinerary combines cruising with daily excursions in the barge’s private bus, to famous vineyards for wine tasting, Medieval towns, historic châteaux and colorful markets. While your barge cruises the canal, soak up the sun on deck or stroll down the towpath. There are also bicycles for those wishing to explore nearby villages.

Included in the Luxury Barge Tour:

  • All-inclusive six night cruise price for individuals or charter groups of 8 - 12 passengers
  • Eight en-suite cabins: 3 doubles (or twins), 3 twins and 2 singles (No single supplement)
  • Free return Paris to barge transfer by private bus
  • Gastronomic food and carefully chosen wines are served throughout the week
  • An ‘open’ and well-stocked bar available to all

Saloon

The saloon is large and welcoming, with comfortable seating and dining areas. A light and bright place to relax and dine with fellow passengers.

You also have free mobile Wi-Fi.

Sundeck

On the large raised sun deck, passengers can relax and enjoy the wonderful vista as we cruise, passing by tranquil pastures, quaint lock houses,12th Century farms and even a German World War II air base.

We had a most enjoyable week. The crew were really a joy. Until the next barge trip, we thank you! - 2019

Burgundy vines

Floating along the Nivernais Canal was a delightful experience. Lovely vistas, visits to pristine rural areas, cool fall weather. The best part of the trip was the wonderful Captain and crew. Always cheerful and attentive, you made our trip memorable. And special thanks to the chef. You made imaginative, interesting, delicious meals in a very confined place.Thank you to all the crew ... you gave us happy memories. - 2019
