Plan the perfect holiday cruising along the rivers and canals of France, Holland, Belgium, Germany-Luxembourg and/or the U.K. Savour the beauty of the countryside at a leisurely pace. Enjoy lazy days, stunning scenery, and friendly service on board. These fleets of old trading barges have been converted into “boutique” luxury hotel barges designed specifically to cruise Europe’s beautiful inland waterways. Barges are fully-crewed and accommodate between just six and twenty passengers ~ creating the atmosphere of a congenial floating house party.
One may choose to charter the entire boat with friends or family, or join a small group of like-minded travellers on an individual cabin basis. We can also arrange themed cruises to accommodate special interests such as golf and wine appreciation. Gourmet meals, regional wines, an open bar, local transfers, and the use of bicycles to explore the towpaths are all included. Some vessels feature a spa pool for relaxation. Daily escorted excursions to off-the-beaten-track castles, wineries, markets, and historical sights of interest are also a part of the barge experience.
Travel in comfort and luxury across Europe's romantic waterways. Savour the beauty of the countryside at the leisurely pace it deserves. Enjoy lazy days, friendly service and stunning scenery. On-board chefs guide you through gastronomic delights.
