Having had two very successful barge cruises in 2018 we are now offering another new barge cruise in 2019.  We have an exclusive charter of Deborah, also one of the CroisiEurope’s 5 Anchor barges, and we are looking forward to a special cruise along the Upper Loire from Nevers to Briare.     

This 7-day cruise will take us to the heart of some authentic terroirs and towns full of character and prestige as we cruise along the Loire, the royal river with a legendary beauty. We will visit some unique places including Nevers, with its famous pilgrimage site and interesting history; Apremont-sur-Allier,  listed as one of the prettiest villages in France, and Fontmorigny Abbey with its eight centuries of monastic history.  We will also visit La Charite-sur-Loire and our cruise includes the Briare Aqueduct,   one of the most prestigious waterways in France.   We have time to discover and enjoy the wines and gastronomic towns of Pouilly-sur-Loire and Sancerre. 

For those who wish there will be time to use the bikes to ride alongside the canal, including the chance  to cycle along a portion of the Euro Velo 6, the bike route travelling from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea.

All food is prepared and cooked by the excellent on-board chef and both lunch and dinner are 3-course meals accompanied by good wines.  All drinks on-board (wine, beer, spirits, fruit juices, water, tea and coffee) are included in the tour price and this also applies to all drinks from the bar except for champagne and wines from the special wine list.
