French Hotel Barge FLEUR DE LYS - Southern Burgundy France

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

Barging in France aboard the French Hotel Barge FLEUR DE LYS

Barge Fleur de Lys cruises the southern Burgundy region of France. 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.

Depending upon your chosen itinerary, these are some things that you might do:
  • Visit Clos de Vougeot, headquarters of the Chevaliers du Tastevin
  • Tour the 11th-century Châteaux Marguerite
  • Taste wine in Beaune
  • Visit to Noyers-sur-Serein, one of the most beautiful villages in Burgundy
  • Explore Château de Rully
  • Shop at a traditional Dijon market and taste freshly-made local mustard
Available for private charters only, but Fleur de Lys will accept individual cabin bookings (shared barging cruise) during the months of April and May.

Fleur de Lys accommodates up to 6 guests in comfort. The air conditioned (and centrally heated) interior boasts a stately lounge with a grand piano, open bar and large windows that panoramically frame the passing countryside. The separate dining room accommodates the most elegant candlelit dinners. The furnishings are authentic pieces which were collected on a trip to India over 30 years ago. Fleur de Lys also has a large heated pool on its upper deck and 6 bikes for passengers to use at their leisure.
