Luxury Barge Cruises

What’s a Barge Cruise Exactly?

Intimate and leisurely barge cruises are a great wait to stop and smell the roses, as you inch along the canals and rivers of central France. Relax on deck with a glass of champagne, a crisp white or a refreshing cocktail as you gaze upon the gorgeous pastoral landscape, from bucolic villages to castle ruins, lush forests, farmland and vineyards.

Foodies and cheese lovers will be in heaven aboard the Grand Victoria, where the chef curates a mouthwatering fromage plate each day, from creamy Camembert and Comté to a classic Bleu d’Auvergne. Meanwhile, elegant meals incorporate the region’s freshest produce, seafood and meats.

Of course, the elegant interior of the Grand Victoria is another reason to consider a barge cruise for your next holidays with friends or family. Like a stylish boutique hotel, the Grand Victoria is très chic.

With just six guests along for the ride, a barge cruise on the Grand Victoria is an intimate and erudite holiday, yet one that’s also supremely relaxing and casual. After all, it’s “your boat” for the week!

Finally, of course, the places you visit daily on a barge cruise in Burgundy are rich in history and charm.

For instance, Château de Rully is a stunning sight to behold. The fortified castle dates back to the 12th century and in more recent times has been transformed into an important wine estate known for its Chardonnays.
