Afloat in France - Amaryllis Barge

Afloat in France – Amaryllis Barge

The Amaryllis cruises through some of the most picturesque waterways in France, exploring the Burgundy countryside in exceptional Orient-Express style. Visit ancient chateaux and follow the wine trail through Beaune, or luxuriate on deck in the heated swimming pool as you drift past premier cru vines. The interior of this luxurious
peniche-hotel is traditionally French, with contemporary touches set off by Louis XVI and XV antiques. Settle into the comfortable lounge or linger over dishes cooked by cordon bleu chef and watch the magical French countryside unfold all around.

The barge carries up to eight people, making it perfect for large families, a reunion of friends or perhaps a group of wine-lovers enjoying the delights of Burgundy. Amaryllis has four generous cabins, each with king or twin beds. Each cabin has itw own en-suite bathroom crafted from marble, which either features a bathtub with an overhead shower or a shower with twin wash basins.

Lounge around in the heated pool during the day, then dine in splendour in the formal dining room. Or enjoy a delightful alfresco dinner as the main lounge doors are opened to the full width of the barge.
