European Waterways Anjodi Hotel BargeEuropean Waterways, Europe’s largest luxury hotel barge cruising company, has announced  savings onmany remaining 2016 departures across its luxury fleet in Europe.  In France, participating hotel barges include L’Art de Vivre and La Belle Epoque, cruising through the Burgundy region, and Anjodi and Clair de Lune, traveling the Canal du Midi. They are offering up to $2,500 off per cabin, based on double occupancy, with L’Art de Vivre and Anjodi also offering $8,000 off the whole boat charter price and Clair de Lune $6,000 off a whole boat charter for select departures.  The savings represent great value during the regions’ popular wine harvest season.


“You couldn’t ask for a better time to visit France. Popular attractions are less crowded and the temperature is perfect for walking, cycling and sightseeing,” said Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways.  “Every cruise is an adventure of discovery. The Burgundy Canal, for example, winds through  a land renowned for its vineyards, medieval towns, elegant châteaux, magnificent cathedrals, picturesque villages and wonderful local markets.”


Among the highlights of a Canal du Midi cruise is a visit to the ancient town of Carcassonne, a fortified citadel and UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its fortifications interspersed by 52 towers.  The lavishly-appointed hotel barges are ideal for slow-paced cruising through the rural landscapes of France, giving guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Autumnal beauty, culture, and gastronomy of the regions.


“The autumn colors, long sunsets, and distinct scents of the season are unforgettable,” said Banks. “Our last-minute special offers are a great opportunity to book the vacation of a lifetime.”


European Waterways is also offering a free hotel night for new bookings on all remaining 2016 departures in 2016 on select hotel barges in France. The hotel stay includes breakfast, can be used either pre-or post-cruise, and is combinable with any other current offer.

Booking deposits must be made by September 30, 2016 to be eligible for this offer.
