Here are selected details from French Waterways’ comprehensive directory of hotel barges cruising in France. Each barge listed below has its own separate page of details with photographs. Links enable you to request more information, by email form or phone.

Guide prices (per person, per cruise week) correspond to Style/Quality levels and are within the very approximate ranges $6,000-$8,500 (6* Supreme), $5,500-$7,500 (5* Grande Luxe), $4,750-$6,500 (4* Excellence), $4,000-$5,000 (3* Premier) and below $2,000 (3* Smart).

Some barges book ‘Hotel Sailings’ (by the cabin) and others ‘Charter Sailings’ (the entire boat).


Boats are initially divided into Category groups, then listed in Capacity order.
