French Hotel Barge L'Impressionniste - Burgundy Bourgogne 2009 France

Due to the increasing demands for high quality wine visits and tasting, L'Impressionniste is returning to the beautiful Southern Burgundy region, cruising on the Burgundy (Bourgogne) Canal between Dijon and Escommes. The itinerary will of course include the "must see" tours of Dijon, Beaune, Nuit-St-Georges and Chateauneuf-en-Auxois. You can see from the new itinerary that this is a fabulous cruise, particularly for wine lovers.

We lived on the French canals for several years... on a private barge Black Moon outside of Paris on the Seine at Le Port Marly; around Paris on the Seine & Marne rivers aboard both sailboats we built in France, Loose Moose & Loose Moose 2; plus with Loose Moose 2 we cruised south and were neighbors of Liz & Rene's one winter in Frontignan back when they had a motorboat.

We love the French canals and we hope you will be able to take advantage of Emma's special offer and experience this unique vacation. It is a superb way to see another aspect of France.
