Hotel Barges on French Canals

Explore the flavours of France in style on a modern 22-passenger hotel barge along the picturesque canals of some of France’s most beautiful areas.

With unlimited complimentary beverages on board, included shore excursions, all meals with fine French cuisine, Wi-Fi and use of bicycles on board, these are superb value cruises.

The CroisiEurope hotel barge fleet is the most modern barge fleet in Europe, with luxurious fabrics by Missoni Design. Every barge features a stylish lounge, bar area and restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious French cuisine prepared by the on board chef. Cabins are well appointed, with private en-suite facilities, television, radio and hairdryer. The Sun Deck is the perfect place to relax, with a Jacuzzi and barbecue area, while the on board bicycles allow guests to explore independently.

Our favourite cruises are the stunning upper Loire Valley on Déborah and the treasures of Provence and the Camargue on Anne-Marie. From the charming village of Briare, Déborah heads to the picturesque wine-regions of Sancerre and Pouillysur-Loire, where the famous Pouilly-Fumé wine is produced. Enjoy wine tastings at prestigious wine cellars and fascinating guided tours of traditional towns and medieval cities, plus sample local delicacies, including goats cheese at a traditional goat farm. Hotel barge Anne-Marie cruises along the beautiful Rhône à Sète Canal, exploring Provence, renowned for its beautiful lavender fields, and the picturesque Camargue, home to a rich diversity of wildlife, including the famous white horses. Discover the impressive Roman ruins in Arles and explore the old fortified city of Aigues Mortes. From Sete, there is a fascinating excursion to the beautiful Étang de Thau, one of the largest lagoons in the Mediterranean.
