Escape to the sunny canals of Burgundy France aboard your very own private charter péniche.
The Randle is designed in the style of a classic cruising boat of the 1930’s, built of steel, hardwood & brass, with stone surfaces throughout, complete with air-conditioning for very comfortable summer cruising.
With 360° views from the deck house and helm, enjoy the countryside as it drifts by, whatever the weather. Shady and comfortable in the Summer, cosy and warm in the Autumn.
When you charter the Randle you also have the luxury of a crew of three, the Captain and owner, the gourmet Chef, and the tour guide and matelot, this happy band of crewmates are your personal servants for the duration your cruise. Because it is your barge for your cruise you set the pace, and the cuisine, we are able to cater for all dietary requirements, please follow the link to Fine Dining aboard the Randle to find out more.
Everything is taken care of from the moment of your pickup at your Parisian hotel, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the fine wine, cuisine, and the beautiful countryside as it drifts by.
All our cruises are curated to include cultural excursions to world heritage sites, vineyards, châteaux, art galleries, historic sites and other places of interest. From Palaeolithic & Roman era, to modern day, tailor your cruise how you wish, to do as much or as little as you desire.
You are also able to take part in as many shore-based activities as you wish, including cycling, balloon rides and trekking.
