Hotel Barges in France : The Master Directory

Here are selected details taken from the french-waterways.com comprehensive 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).
A booking enquiry response will provide accurate quotations for the type of boat and time of year that interests you.
Some barges book ‘Hotel Sailings’ (by the cabin) and others ‘Charter Sailings’ (the entire boat).
