Congratulations! You need look no further.
We can offer you the perfect cruise, right here!

We know that some barges offer too much of everything:
Copious amounts of  rich food, tiring excursions,
and not enough time to unwind, relax and simply ‘be’.

Welcome to the Home & Away cruise, our unique product  designed to introduce you to a more relaxed way of exploring Burgundy.
It’s the perfect solution for groups of friends and families alike.

How would you like to spend your time?
You can take a gentle stroll to explore one of the inviting quaint villages alongside the canal, or take a bicycle ride along the tow path.
A spot of fishing?  No problem… we’ll be happy to lend you our rods!
