Hotel Barges

Enjoy the charm and intimacy of a luxury barge cruise on the historic rivers and canals of France. A memorable experience is in store for friends or family, and is great for grandparents and grandchildren. Or perhaps you prefer to book by the cabin to share the experience with newly found friends, savoring the fine cuisine, while sampling outstanding wines. Enjoy private excursions led by the barge's guide on the barge's own minibus.

Choose the adventure of a lifetime aboard a self-drive boat, meandering along rural waterways, stopping to explore idyllic villages or bustling market towns, visiting historic homes or chateaux, and sampling wine direct from the vineyard or local pub fare as you pass. This is a holiday of pure freedom; travel at your own pace, stop when and where you wish, as you cruise through some of France's most charming countryside.

Hotel Barges

Cruising on a Riverboat is one of the most comfortable and convenient ways to discover a great variety of France’s most fascinating places. River cruise ships are more intimate than ocean ships, usually with only 100-300 passengers. All cabins have windows and many ships have balconies. Enjoy breathtaking scenery from almost anywhere on the ship, including the sun deck.
