 Luxury Barge Tour on Lower Nivernais and Burgundy canals

Recently refitted, the barge has four cabins with modern ensuite bathrooms and the delightful saloon combines contemporary leather with more traditional furnishings. There is a sun deck for relaxing with a glass of wine as you glide through the pretty Burgundy countryside, a relaxing spa pool and, or course, bicycles for exploring along the towpath before rejoining the barge at one of the locks up ahead.

The region simply oozes charm and the cruise is a journey back in time along a magical waterway. With a full crew and master chef on board, you can be sure of indulging in the region's good food and wine.
