A Spotlight on Luxury Barge Finesse

Luxury barge cruise Finesse as she cruises Southern Burgundy - barge holidays in France

Gliding along a European canal, passing vineyards, villages, historic towns as that unparalleled feeling of calm and quietude almost overwhelms you… By now, you surely understand the appeal of a holiday aboard one of our hotel barges.

Luxury hotel barge Finesse is a long, majestic barge with an expansive sundeck and a double-decker layout, everything about her design is carefully chosen to give the feeling of space without compromising on comfort. You and your party will be put up in four luxurious, roomy suites, sleeping two passengers each. Wake up from a soothing night’s rest and wander to the saloon, where the port and starboard walls have panoramic windows, bringing you as close to the surrounding scenery as possible. For those relaxed outdoor afternoons you’ll be able to relax on deck, where you can spend a few hours enjoying a glass of wine and watching the world go by, or even take a dip in the spa pool.

We’re especially proud of Finesse’s demonstration galley: as you may know, all of our cruises are attended by a highly skilled personal chef, and you can expect an accordingly high standard of food. On board the Finesse, however, not only will you be able to enjoy the fruits of your chef’s labour, but you’ll also be able to watch him in action as he masterfully prepares gourmet meals for you and your fellow passengers. There are few greater pleasures than lounging in your saloon, surrounded by good company and with unforgettable views gliding past on either side, watching the work of a gastronomic artist.

Whether you’re looking to try hotel barge cruising for the first time or whether you already have fond memories of previous hotel barge cruises, this is a truly splendid vessel.
