Barging on the Canal du Bourgogne

A hotel barge cruise on the Burgundy Canal is a wonderful experience.  Burgundy boasts some of the world’s finest wines with around 60,000 acres of sunlit vines and arguably the prettiest canals in France. The Burgundy Canal winds its way in smooth curves through the heart of renowned vineyards, medieval towns, elegant châteaux, magnificent cathedrals, picturesque villages and wonderful local markets.

This is a region with a vast variety of cheeses, strong in character or mild and fresh and all can be enjoyed with full-bodied red Burgundies, or perhaps with lighter white Chablis wines. Burgundy’s gastronomic tradition is certainly rich and diverse and a sedate cruise on a hotel barge along one of its delightful waterways will allow you to indulge in good food and wine, two of the real pleasures in life.

The Euro Escapes Difference

Planning a Barge cruise vacation can be exciting, but also confusing. There are many barges from which to choose at different price levels. That is why we have taken the time to inspect  the barges that we recommend here.   Little things do matter, and the style of the boat, size of the cabin, type of food served aboard, crew, captain and tours offered make a big difference.

Let our experts at Euro Escapes help you choose the right cruise for you.
