barge cruises in france

In France, several regions can be discovered from the deck of one of our barges. Newly built, our river barges are all similar, offering the same comfort and the same service. Therfore, the important thing for you is to select the route. The most famous cruising areas in France are Burgundy and the Canal du Midi whilst Alsace and Champagne offer very scenic cruises. The itineraries listed hereunder cruising among the most scenic rivers and canals of France should appeal to all. We are offering individual cabins when available but as our river barges are excellent value, most of the time boats are chartered months in advance for families or small groups. Don't wait for the last minute. Book now for 2018.
