Choose to cruise by bespoke barge
Your captain will take the helm of your bespoke barge as you explore the waterways of France - leaving you free to relax under the shaded sundeck watching the natural world go by. Our fleet of polished barges offer the ultimate in comfort from spa pool to outside-facing cabins, putting you at one with nature.
A feeling of gentle exploration awaits as you drift along the waterways passing by vineyards, chateaux, palaces and picture-perfect villages. Hard to believe at this genteel pace the barge covers up to 70 miles in six days.
Your expert tour guide will ensure you have exclusive access to some of the most cultural and historic wonders along the way. Sample vintage wine at a family-run vineyard or discover the difference between the black and white truffle during a private tasting session.
Back on board, your master chef will celebrate French cuisine with a buffet lunch brimming with pâtés, cheeses and fruit. If you’re tempted to take a stroll or bike ride down the towpath take a sumptuous picnic to eat on the river bank.
Savour an aperitif on the sundeck prior to a five-course dinner complimented with a fine wine from a regional vineyard. You can relax knowing that all costs from transfers, meals, drinks and excursions are included.
Whenever you choose to cruise, from March to October, the shades of each season will colour your journey. Whether you witness the first wild daffodils or the poppies of spring, or watch the grape harvest from deck, each month will bring its own unique memories.
