Luxuriate on your own private vessel as you drift languidly through the lush, vineyard-covered countryside of Burgundy, perhaps sipping a glass of Champagne before a gourmet prepared by your onboard chef. This charter-only barge offers two routes in Burgundy: one cruising the Burgundy Canal exclusively and one combining the Burgundy Canal with the River Saône and Canal du Centre. Theme itineraries can be arranged for groups with special interests, such as wine appreciation or cooking.
