BELMOND AFLOAT IN FRANCE
Our French river cruises offer a wide variety of itineraries, all visiting spectacular destinations. Explore the majestic vineyards of Burgundy or the medieval villages of Provence. Drift past blazing fields of sunflowers and hilltop châteaux.

What to Expect
Discover France at a leisurely pace, through picturesque locks and riverbanks lined with fishermen.
Every night the barge berths in a new location. A gourmet dinner is served on board before settling down to sleep, lulled by the lapping waters.
Lazy hours on deck are combined with exciting activities ashore. Bicycles are stored on board to explore the local area. Private transport is available for longer excursions, complete with a driver and knowledgeable guide.
