La Belle Epoque

Hotel Barge La Belle Epoque

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 in the late 1990's into a delightful hotel barge.
She is now the perfect vessel for cruising the 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.

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 Hostesses.
