Hotel Barge Savoir Vivre - Popular barge in Burgundy France

The French Hotel Barge Savoir Vivre has become a very popular barge for cruising the canals of Burgundy as you can tell by their calendar. It is the middle of February and even though the barging season hasn't started, they only have a few weeks available for 2014.

Only EIGHT weeks available

Savoir Vivre is a bit different to the other hotel barges that we represent as they do not have an onboard chef. Pastries for the continental breakfast are supplied by the local baker. Lunch is catered by professional chefs who meet up with the boat with their prepared meal. Dinners are off the boat in locally selected restaurants (included in charter fee).
