Finesse is a luxurious, double-decker hotel barge that cruises the scenic River Saône and Canal du Centre in Southern Burgundy.



Built to exacting standards with luxury in mind, she offers accommodation for up to 8 passengers in four spacious, air conditioned, twin or double-bedded suites (approximately 265sq ft including en suite) each with beautifully appointed ensuite bathrooms with showers. Finesse will also boast a large saloon with panoramic windows and a demonstration galley where guests can watch their chef preparing delicious gourmet meals.

Finesse has a very modern and well-designed interior, offering plenty of natural light. Outside, guests can relax on the large sun deck with its alfresco dining area, comfortable seating, and spa pool.

With her attentive crew of five to look after you, Finesse is the perfect vessel on which to meander through the vineyards and undulating countryside of Southern Burgundy.
