Taking a Burgundy barge cruise down one of the region’s canals is a wonderful experience. Burgundy boasts some of the world’s finest wines with around 60,000 acres of sunlit vines and arguably the prettiest canals in France. The Burgundy Canal winds its way in smooth curves through the heart of renowned vineyards, medieval towns, elegant châteaux, magnificent cathedrals, picturesque villages and wonderful local markets. Barging in Burgundy guarantees our clients a wealth of sightseeing opportunities.
This is a region with a vast variety of cheeses, in all shapes, sizes and colours, strong in character or mild and fresh and all can be enjoyed with full-bodied red Burgundies, or perhaps with lighter white Chablis wines. Burgundy’s gastronomic tradition is certainly rich and diverse and a sedate Burgundy barge cruise along one of its delightful waterways will allow you to indulge in good food and wine: two of life’s essential pleasures.
Experience a new way of barging with the stylish eight passenger Savoir Vivre. Nightly meals ashore at local restaurants are included in the price, which gives you an up close and personal experience of the local French Culture and exquisite cuisine. Nice size cabins with en-suite facilities for eight guests, this barge is smartly decorated and offers all the amenities one expects when barging but has a new twist with meals ashore.
You will cruise along one of France’s most beautiful canals, the Canal du Bourgogne. When not enjoying the spectacular and charming scenery, you will explore hidden gems of French life, history and culture via air conditioned van and the legendary guidance of Laura, your private expert guide.
All departures include private chauffeured transfers from and to a central Dijon location.
