Book Hotel Barge River Cruiser NAPOLEON with

The Napoléon is one of Europe’s finest river cruisers, combining all the amenities of a luxury hotel with the friendly ambience of a country inn. She accommodates up to 12 passengers and is beautifully appointed with large picture windows that provide unsurpassed views of the countryside.

The Napoléon cruises the Rhône between Arles and Tain l’Hermitage/Tournon; sun-drenched landscapes that inspired the great canvases of Cézanne and Van Gogh.

The region is full of sophisticated architecture dating back to the Roman civilization and ruins of fortifications, arenas and aqueducts which continue to amaze modern engineers. The endless vistas of tiled roofs, lavender fields and olive groves are synonymous with Provence.

Excursions are arranged to the wine region of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and the story book towns of Orange, Avignon, Arles, St Rémy, birthplace of Nostradamus, and the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of Pont-du-Gard and Glanum.
