French Hotel Barge Cruises in Champagne France

We have three luxury hotel barges that cruise through the Champagne region of France: La Nouvelle Etoile, Panache, and Savoir Faire. You can view their itineraries in their online brochures (click on links below).

Champagne Itinerary: Paris - Cumieres/Epernay -- Click map to enlarge
The Champagne region stretches from Meaux along the beautiful River Marne to the city of Epernay, home of many renowned Champagne producers, including Moët et Chandon, Pol Roger and Mercier.

Vineyards spread across the rolling plains as far as the eye can see, green with the new leaves of Spring, turning to gold as the grapes ripen in the Autumn. The region is rich in both modern and ancient history and during your voyage you visit such landmarks as Château Thierry and the Cathedral of Reims.

There will be plenty the opportunity to sample the sparkling wine to which the region has given its name, including a private tasting in the vast cellars of Moët et Chandon. As well as champagne, the region is rich in other delicious products, particularly its wonderfully creamy cheeses, with the towns of Meaux and Coulommiers at its heart.

Cruise highlights:
  • Cruise through Paris past the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame
  • Visit elegant Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte and its gardens
  • Explore the magnificent Merovingian Crypts of Jouarre
  • Visit Château Thierry, the scene of fierce battles in World War I
  • Enjoy a private tasting in Moët et Chandon's cellars.
  • Tour the majestic Gothic cathedral of Reims
