The Savoir Vivre is a modern, efficient and purpose-built boat, which displays the traditional lines of a barge.
She is the ONLY barge offering a Dine-Around cruise.
Each day a continental breakfast will be served, while later a substantial lunch will be provided by a local chef using fresh, seasonal and authentically French ingredients.
Evening meals, to include your selection from the menu and half a bottle of wine per person, are taken in a variety of wonderful, carefully chosen restaurants where the food and service go beyond expectation.
Aboard the Savoir Vivre, up to date technology includes digitally controlled air-conditioning, instant hot water, power showers and electrically adjustable beds.
All areas of the ship are common areas.
If you prefer to be inside, the saloon offers the perfect setting to relax and watch the world drift by.
Outside, the two sun decks, which are a feature unique to the Savoir Vivre, ensure both a shady haven and a glorious suntrap throughout the day.
So much space makes certain that a quiet moment is always possible.
Each day, discover more of the beautiful Burgundy region with guided excursions to local points of interest in the dedicated minivan.
All entrance fees are included.
Alternatively, take one of the bikes and head off on your own adventure!
After a day's barging, you will be ready to sleep soundly!
Each of the four cabins can be arranged with a queen size bed, or twins.
Enjoy the adjustable beds, ample storage, digital climate control, fresh air fans, full-height mirrors and desks for writing your postcards or cruise diary.
All of the full-size windows are above water level making the cabins a delightful place to relax during the day.
The en-suite bathrooms contain wet-room showers with no steps, glass enclosures and heated towel rails, all of which add to your comfort.
We offer a relaxed holiday and take charge of everything including transfers from Dijon TGV railway station.
The Savoir Vivre offers a chic, fun and 'ever-so-slightly adventurous' barging experience unlike any other, and her unique Dine Around cruise has proved very popular.
So, if you have a free spirit, come and join us for the holiday of a lifetime.

L’Auberge Gourmand, the "Greedy Inn" is in the village of Velar-sur-Ouch. Chef Christophe has mastered his cooking skills in resturants such as the Guy Savoy in Paris, Hotel Negresco in Nice and Restaurant Fredy Giradet in Switzerland. As the reputation of this restaurant is growing and has a very promising future we believe this is the “Savoir Vivre” time to visit.
