Past fields of blazing sunflowers, hilltop châteaux and verdant vineyards... Take a voyage of discovery, all from the comfort of your péniche-hôtel.
Enjoy the splendour of France as you float along its criss-crossing waterways. Discover stunning landscape, delicious food and wine and a warm welcome.
The five luxury barges, or péniche-hôtels, of Belmond Afloat in France are your passport to the heart of France.
Every night the péniche-hôtel berths in a new location. A gourmet dinner is served on board before settling down to sleep, comforted by the sound of the lapping waters.
Come morning the mist rises to reveal the sun as the craft slips its moorings. The barge continues on its way through picturesque locks and riverbanks lined with fishermen. A kingfisher darts past. A village baker cycles by, his dog perched in the wicker basket.
Lazy hours on deck beside the plunge pool are combined with excursions ashore. Bicycles are stored on board, ready for a gentle peddle to a nearby country market. For longer journeys, private transport is on hand, complete with driver and a knowledgeable guide.
A farewell dinner of regional specialities brings the cruise to a memorable close It’s the perfect chance to reflect on your trip, and to contemplate a future journey aboard one of Belmond Afloat in France's other crafts.
With a high crew-to-guest ratio, our expert, multi-lingual staff will pamper you.
A personal guide will introduce you to renowned local vineyards, architecture and activities.
