HOTEL BARGES / LUCIOLE
Burgundy canal & Nivernais ?
Available for whole-boat charter or individual bookings, the 12-passenger ' Luciole ' allows our guests to explore in comfort the intimate up-country waterways of central France. From the air-conditioned saloon big picture windows allow uninterrupted views of the passing scene. Refreshments are freely available at all times from our open bar.
Three double-bedded cabins are available, each of which can be converted into twins, together with three further twin-bedded and two single cabins on board. Each has its own private shower and toilet facilities. Individually-controlled air-conditioning is installed throughout.
The Luciole cruises with a ‘no smoking policy’ within the barge. Smokers are kindly asked to respect fellow passenger’s wishes out on deck also.
The waterway on which we operate is beautiful and dramatic, rated by experienced barge travelers amongst the finest cruise routes in Europe.
We cruise through lands where Charolais cows graze by the water's edge. Stone-built villages stand invitingly, with their painted shutters and doorways framed in roses. Centuries-old locks mark the way, a contact with a life-style where hustle knows no place.
Each day in our accompanying bus we make excursions into a historic and culturally rich region - to chateaux, market towns and vineyards. And our expert on-board guide knows this region well.
