Here is the complete french-waterways.com list of 70 hotel barges in France. Each linked barge page has descriptive information prepared from owners’ own words – plus some key facts. Links enable you to request more information, make a booking enquiry or telephone direct.
Guide prices (per person, per cruise week) correspond to Style/Quality levels and are within the very approximate ranges $5,500-$8,000 (Grande Luxe), $4,000-$5,500 (Excellence), $2,000-$5,000 (Premier) and below $2,000 (Simplicity).
Make an enquiry for a firm quotation for the boat and time of year that interests you. Some barges book ‘Hotel Sailings’ (by the cabin) and others ‘Charter Sailings’ (the entire boat).
