L'ART DE VIVRE  

Luxury barge cruise vacations on the French hotel barge L'ART DE VIVRE cruising the Canal du Nivernais in the Burgundy / Bourgogne region of France French Hotel Barge L' Art de Vivre - ParadiseConnections.com
French Hotel Barge L' ART DE VIVRE
Nivernais Canal, Burgundy France


The eight-passenger L'Art de Vivre started life as a Scottish lumber carrier and has been carefully transformed by a team of skilled craftsmen into a floating celebration of the Burgundian "good life". The recently refitted cabins have modern en suite bathrooms and the delightful saloon combines contemporary leather with more traditional furnishings.

There is a sun deck to relax on with a glass of wine as you glide through the pretty Burgundy countryside, a relaxing spa pool and, of course, bicycles for exploring along the towpath before rejoining the hotel barge at one of the locks up ahead.
 
Your crew of four comprises a Captain, Master Chef, Tour Guide and Hostess, all with a love of the Nivernais Canal and secure in the knowledge that their vessel represents “L’Art de Vivre” itself. The region simply oozes charm and the cruise is a journey back in time along a magical waterway.

L'Art de Vivre is also available for 'Tandem Cruises' with the 12 passenger La Belle Epoque for larger groups of up to 20 passengers.
