French Hotel Barge AMARYLLIS - Southern Burgundy France

We would like to welcome French Hotel Barge AMARYLLIS into the fleet of crewed luxury hotel barges represented by Paradise Connections.

Barging in France - Cruise the region of Southern Burgundy aboard the French Hotel Barge AMARYLLIS

Barge Amaryllis cruises the southern Burgundy region of France, as does her sistership, Fleur de Lys, mentioned in the post below. Travel along the Canal du Bourgogne on the Dijon to Escommes route, and for the Dijon to St-Léger-sur-Dheune itinerary you will cruise along the Canal du Bourgogne, River Saône, and Canal du Centre.

The 8-passenger, luxury hotel barge Amaryllis, cruises through some of the most picturesque waterways in France, exploring the Burgundy countryside in exceptional style. Visit ancient châteaux, follow the wine trail through Beaune, or luxuriate on deck in the heated swimming pool as you drift past premier cru vines.

Cruise Highlights:

  • Visit the Château de Longecourt, owned by the same family since 1631
  • Shop at a traditional Dijon market and taste freshly made local mustard
  • Explore the barge port at St Jean de Losne
  • Tasting at Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy
  • Tour Château de Germolles, residence of the Dukes of Burgundy

Amaryllis has two special weeks devoted to a Grand Cru Cruise. Taste the 33 Grand Crus of Burgundy, including Bonne Mares, Montrachet and Romanée Conti. No need to book the whole boat as it is open on an individual cabin, shared charter basis. July 17-23, 2011 and July 24-30, 2011

Amaryllis is available for private charters only, with the exception of the two Grand Cru cruises.

Amaryllis is fully air conditioned (with central heat, too!) and accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 large staterooms, each with private ensuite bathrooms. The interior of Amaryllis is traditionally French with contemporary touches, set off by Louis XVI and XV antiques. She has been decorated by some of the most respected names in France and Italy. Settle into the comfortable lounge with a drink from the open bar, take a dip in the pool, linger over dishes cooked by the cordon bleu chef, or simply watch the magical French countryside unfold all around. If you are feeling energetic, cycle along the tow path!
