About the barge "Saroche"

Photo of Saroche

Travelling through France this year?  Why not take a welcome break on your way to the south?
Or simply a few days in the beautiful, countryside as a peaceful getaway.

Saroche is the largest six-passenger hotel barge in France, and offers exceptionally comfortable, private accommodation on a Bed & Breakfast basis for 4 to 6 guests travelling together. 
Saroche is based at Renéve, on the Champagne Burgundy Canal.  (15 minutes off the A5), just 30 km north-east of Dijon, the former capital of the Dukes of Burgundy.

Opt for a 4-course gourmet dinner cooked by our on-board chef, or take a short drive to a local restaurant for your evening meal.

Completely refitted for 2019, the Saroche is the definition of a luxury hotel barge, inviting our guests to relax upon arrival. The vessel has a split-level lounge/dining room (25' x 16'), and a large sun deck with awning-covered dining area (45’ by 14’), for 'al fresco' meals during the day or indeed a drink around the fire pit at dusk. Inside the lounge/dining area has a warm ambience, Eight large opening windows and a hexagonal skylight flood the room with sunshine and fresh air, as rippling reflections from the water dance across the unique modern Art Deco birds eye maple interior, wrought iron and brass handrails and soft material covered walls, all reflecting and absorbing the atmosphere, bright colours and sunshine of the French countryside. The comfortable seating, BlueTooth stereo, DVD player and library complete the cosy atmosphere - where passengers quickly feel at home.

The three staterooms are richly decorated, luxurious and spacious - more closely resembling a hotel room than a ship's cabin. All the beds can be converted into either twin beds or queen-sized double beds. Each stateroom has built-in wardrobes with ample hanging and shelf space. All cabins have central heating and individually controlled air conditioning systems. Fresh air is provided by a modern integrated double flu VMC system providing sterilised filtered fresh air to each cabin.

All three new Art Deco style fully tiled ensuite bathrooms have shelves and alcoves with make-up/shaving mirrors above the washbasins. large rain shower cubicles with high ceilings and easy access glass doors. Hot water is abundant, hairdryers are provided in all cabins. As well as a selection of included toiletries, the large fluffy bath sheets that sit on heated towel rails add to the luxury.
