Belmond Afloat in France

Ship Specifications

  • GUESTS:12

Cruise Ship Accommodation Details


Travelling by luxury barge is about enjoying a gentler pace of life; one that’s altogether slower and more pastoral. It’s about dining on gourmet dinners in the evening before settling down to sleep to the comforting sound of the lapping waters, waking up to a beautiful morning with the only taxing thought being whether to leave the barge for a stroll along a leafy towpath, or to jump on a bike and head to the market.

The Belmond Afloat in France fleet comprises five finely crafted vessels (Alouette, Fleur de Lys, Amaryllis, Hirondelle and Napoleon) and a high ratio of crew-to-guests ensures impeccable service as you cruise along the arrow-straight, tree-fringed canals, passing meadows filled with poppies, glades of poplar trees and sun-drenched vineyards, stopping en route to discover great cities, medieval villages and Renaissance châteaux.

All of the barges carry only a small number of passengers, for a highly personalised journey, and boasts comfortably sized living space. With large picture windows, and fabulous roof decks, these barges are exquisitely crafted for an idyllic journey along these scenic waterways, whether you wish to privately charter your own boat, or book a cabin.
