The Belmond Afloat in France fleet is comprised of seven luxury barges that cruise along the Canal du Midi (Alouette), Rhône River (Napoleon), Burgundy (Amaryllis, Fleur de Lys, Hirondelle), Champagne (Pivoine – New!) & Alsace (Lilas – New!).

Carrying between 4 and 12 guests, the Belmond luxury barge collection is amongst the most exclusive and lavish ever to navigate France’s waterways. Charter your own barge or reserve a cabin with other guests, as you uncover everything from the great cities to remote landscapes of forests, fields and hidden villages. Gourmet dining on board and visits to local sights are all part of the experience.

No matter which barge you choose in the collection, these individually designed craft are distinguished by their spaciousness and luxurious facilities, which on certain barges includes heated swimming pools, sitting rooms furnished with period furniture and state rooms with canopied beds.
