Afloat in France


Cruise the picturesque canals and rivers of France at a leisurely pace aboard one of the seven luxury barges that make up the Belmond Afloat in France fleet. 

Enjoy exclusive wine tastings in Burgundy, forays into majestic cities such as Avignon, bicycle rides along sun-dappled towpaths, or simply admire the scenery from the sun deck, anticipating the next delicious offering from your private chef.

Every night the barge berths in a new location. Savor a gourmet dinner, served on board, before settling down to sleep, lulled by the lapping waters.


The stunning barges accommodate between 4 and 12 guests in total comfort.  Whether you want a family holiday, a reunion with friends or a romantic escape, we can create your perfect journey.  Travelling with a large group? Charter two or three vessels together. With added space and shared facilities, it offers exceptional flexibility.  Or, simply join on a per-cabin basis to one of the fabulous pre-planned itineraries.
Running from April to October, there are a range of itineraries, from classic to customized, to suit every guest.  Experience Burgundy, Champagne, Provence and beyond in total luxury. 


With a high crew-to-guest ration, bilingual staff, a personal guide on board, and a chef who carefully pairs fresh regional cuisine with local wines and cheeses, serenity and adventure in the French countryside lie just ahead.
