Video: Hotel Barge La Belle Epoque

The 12 Passenger Hotel Barge La Belle Epoque is a spacious, luxurious hotel barge. Although she originally carried logs from Burgundy to Paris, she was skilfully converted into a delightful hotel barge. She is now the perfect vessel for cruising the Upper Burgundy Canal with its towpaths that are ideal for walking and cycling.

She has been designed with both elegance and passenger comfort in mind and offers a sun deck with spa-pool, wood-panelled saloon/dining room and other luxury amenities. She is also fully air-conditioned. The spacious cabins offer a choice of twin or double beds with marble en suite facilities. The Captain leads a crew of six comprising Master Chef, Deck Hand, Tour Guide and two Housekeepers.
