La Belle Epoque is a spacious, luxurious hotel barge and sister ship to L'Impressionniste. 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.
The classic traditions of French and International cuisine are an unforgettable highlight of your cruise. The onboard chefs are experienced, highly-trained culinary artists, whose gastronomic creations are often rated higher by our discerning clients than those they have sampled in top restaurants.
La Belle Époque does not offer any dedicated enrichment facilities. She however visits many locations of historical or cultural importance. See below for the more information on the Upper Burgundy Canal.
Each hotel barge has a library, games and a CD player/iPod dock and some of them a spa pool on the sun deck, TV/DVD, or computer with internet access, often WiFi. Some even have a telescope for an after-dinner gaze into the night sky.
There is also, of course, an open bar stocked with a wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks.
Please note: La Belle Époque does not offer any dedicated Health & Fitness facilities. However, a spa pool is available on the Lower Sun Deck, and 12 touring bikes, as well as a tandem bike are available on request for anyone wishing to cycle around the areas visited.
Please note: La Belle Époque does not offer any dedicated children facilities.
