Happy New Year! or as we say in France, bonne année!
Small group barge travel offers our guests an unique and privileged view of rural France and the French lifestyle well away from crowds and mass tourism attractions, working closely with local suppliers and families of the region we offer an intimate and detailed insight to French way of life not available to travellers just passing through.
2020 brought many changes to the world, but between lock-downs and quarantines we cruised and enjoyed the summer in France. Now with winter mists rollings along the canal we look forward to 2021 with increased hope and optimism that travellers will be able to return to France again.
Safely aboard the floating island which is the Randle, and your home for your stay aboard, the countryside just drifts by, what could be a better way to relax and escape the worries of the world.
Your private onboard chef prepares delicious cuisine from fresh local produce, enjoyed with fine wine from vineyards above the river we cruise. It is sometimes just the simple things; fresh bread warm from the baker’s oven, honey from the lock-keeper’s bees, and wild oak truffles in the autumn that make the French lifestyle such a daily joy to be lived, no wonder a two hour lunch break is still the norm, not the exception, what the French call the art d’vivre, the art of Living.
Small group barge travel offers our guests an unique and privileged view, if you thinking of travelling to France in 2021 or in the future then what better way to enjoy and explore than by a private inland voyage, please feel free to contact us anytime or at firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries that you may have about cruising through this beguiling and historic land.
May I take this opportunity to wish you a happy a prosperous 2021 wherever you are and whatever you will be doing.
