LA BELLE EPOQUE
French Hotel Barge LA BELLE EPOQUE
Experience the French countryside while cruising along the
Canal de Bourgogne - Burgundy, France
The 12-passenger La Belle Epoque is a spacious, luxurious hotel barge and sister ship to L’Impressionniste. She originally carried logs from Burgundy to Paris and Amsterdam and has been skilfully converted into a delightful hotel barge. She is now the perfect vessel for cruising the Upper Burgundy Canal with its towpaths that are ideal for walking and cycling.
She has been designed with both elegance and passenger comfort in mind with air conditioning/central heating and offers a sun deck with spa pool, wood-panelled saloon/dining room and other luxury amenities. The spacious cabins offer a choice of twin or double beds, with marble en-suite facilities.
The Captain leads a crew of six, comprising Master Chef, Tour Guide, Housekeeper, Stewardess and Deckhand
Burgundy / Bourgogne
Burgundy boasts some of the world's finest wines with almost 60,000 acres of sun-lit vines which you can experience by two canals that pass through this region: the Canal du Nivernais, and the Canal de Bourgogne which lies to its east.
La Belle Epoque cruises the upper Burgundy Canal in the North of Burgundy throughout the season, between the two classic French towns of Tanlay and Venarey-les-Laumes. This is a perfect cruise for exploring every aspect of the region. Go with your master chef to the market at the village of Noyers and meet the locals who are so proud of their produce. Accompany your tour guide who will take you on a tour of L'Abbaye de Fontenay, a true insight into the history and culture of Burgundy. Then taste the wine at Saint Bris le Vineaux after touring the Chablis vineyards where it was grown.
