We have received the long-awaited photos of the French Hotel Barge Grand Cru who made their debut earlier this season in April 2018. We will be posting the pictures on our electronic brochure for Grand Cru as soon as possible, but we will treat you to a few in this blog post.
Grand Cru offers six night/seven day journeys on a route featuring "The Best of Burgundy's Best." With their gastronomic program, guests enjoy pours of Grand Cru wines with every lunch and dinner. Selected from France's famous wine region, these Grand Cru samplings pair perfectly with the Chef's gourmet cuisine. Other superior libations will be served as well, such as the "créme de la créme" of regional spirits and liqueurs.
The Grand Cru's eye-catching modern design effortlessly reflects the clean lines and open spaces of contemporary living. Four generously-sized cabins accommodate up to eight guests in beautifully-appointed staterooms, while the comfortable furniture throughout the spacious salon and expansive deck encourages hours of casual socializing. While cruising, guests can relax on deck and enjoy the unspoiled scenery along the waterways or explore the route's charming canalside villages riding the barge's bicycles or taking a bit of a stroll.
