French Barge SAVOIR VIVRE: New Value Season Dates

We have offered the French hotel barge SAVOIR VIVRE since she was first launched into the charter fleet and have watched with pleasure as this barge has truly come into its own. The owner of Savoir Vivre, James Waggott, deserves much credit for the success of his barge as it is a bit different from the norm with their "dine like a local WITH the locals" dinners ashore each night.

Read what Savoir Vivre's guests from the 2012 season have said about:
“Savoir Vivre exceeded my expectations.  The service and the food were on par with a cruise we took several years ago on a more expensive luxury barge in the same area.”

“I am in the adventure travel business and therefore can be quite critical when traveling with other travel companies – but this was top notch.”

“I feel I definitely saw some of the real France.”
“The cabins were great! They were nicer than we expected. Very modern, clean and efficient. The bathrooms were super and the showers were great.”

“Our cabin was charming, nicely decorated and had more storage and a larger shower than expected.”
“To rate the crew as ‘excellent’ doesn’t do them justice.  The three of them worked exceptionally well together and were the major reason for our wonderful experience.  Jo, the Hostess, worked magic. Laura, the Guide, was well-versed in the history of the area and made it come alive.”

“Our crew was excellent.  I can’t imagine travelling with a better crew!  They were like family and I cried when we had to say goodby.”

“Captain Richard is the most friendly and outgoing person.  He handles all the personalities and still stays at the top of his game.”

‘Guide Laura went out of her way to supply a special wine that I had mentioned and was unable to locate thus far in France.  She surprised me with a bottle that  we were able to drink right on a spot overlooking the vineyards.”
“We enjoyed eating at various restaurants in the villages each night. This was one of the main reasons we chose Savoir Vivre, and it fully lived up to our expectations.”

“We would rate the cuisine as EXCELLENT.  The breakfasts were very nice – not too much food but just what we wanted.  LOVED the lunches – Chef Steve catered ‘to die for’ quiches and the most delicious salads of all types. On the last day, we had wonderful poached salmon.”

“The food was outstanding – breakfast, lunch and dinner.  But the evening meals on shore became everyone’s favorite and we looked forward to them all day.”

“We will miss the three salads, quiches, baguettes, real butter, meat, cheeses, two wines, desert and café served at lunch each day!”
