For couples especially, getting away from it all on a self-drive boating holiday is one of the most peaceful escapes. It’s a chance to leave everyday life behind and explore France’s beautiful waterways at your own pace, in comfort and seclusion. With the freedom to cruise as far as you like and stop wherever you fancy, you’ll enjoy authentic French life like never before, delving into village cafés and restaurants or loading up with local specialities to enjoy on board.
If you love gourmet food, fine wine and fascinating culture then, as a couple, you’ll be in good company. Hotel barging in France is all about enjoying the finer things in life with a handful of like-minded fellow passengers. Join a hotel barge for just 6 – 12 guests and with everything included, all you need to do is relax and share the experience of boutique luxury afloat.
For the ultimate secluded getaway or honeymoon, you could always book exclusive use of the whole barge for an unforgettable cruise in the most romantic country on earth.
River cruising in France is in many ways the perfect holiday for couples who enjoy travelling in luxury. The all-inclusive experience means you can sit back, relax and enjoy unlimited drinks, gourmet menus, exciting itineraries and, of course, each other’s company, all while exploring a fascinating, new destination every day. And with an average of only 160 passengers, river cruises give you the opportunity to enjoy your time together or to make new friends.
