Afloat in France - Fleur de Lys

Afloat in France – Fleur de Lys

Gracious elegance and pure Orient-Express style make a journey aboard The Fleur de Lys the ultimate in luxury barging.

The Fleur de Lys is furnished with authentic pieces collected on a trip to India 30 years ago. Of particular interest is the Telegraph that now stands in the lounge and acts as a night light. This gem of an item was discovered for sale on a street corner. A price was agreed with the vendor which included shipping. The Telegraph duly arrived six months later!

Gently travelling the classic Burgundy route, you pass through France’s famous
Cote d’Or. Drift past vineyards home to legendary regions such as Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune where Grand Crus wines can be savoured. Fleur de Lys also cruises the River Saone and teh Canal du Centre, visiting delightful towns and villages en route.

With a stately lounge and large windows that frame the passing countryside, this
peniche-hotel offers a cruise to remember. Exceptional on board dining and the chance to join in local life enhance this great experience.
