Saroche, cruising both in Burgundy and Champagne, has set a new standard in comfort, price and value.  The design is to the highest standards with respect given to the original lines of this wonderful Luxemotor barge. With a crew of four aboard Saroche, comprising of Captain, Chef du cuisine, Hostess and Deckhand you will be truly pampered and want for nothing.

Saroche hotel barge

Saroche is undoubtedly one of the most attractive barges cruising the waterways of France, with a classic hull, arched windows and sleek lines.

The 6-passenger SAROCHE was purchased in 2015 by Jason Ashcroft and Dawn Coles, who for many years owned and operated the 6-passenger barge Who Knows in Burgundy and Champagne. 

The crew's years of experience in hotel barging combine this experience to ensure that cruising on board Saroche is a relaxing, comfortable, informative and gourmet journey.

Jason and Dawn bring with them their enthusiasm about the fun and enjoyment of barge cruises along with their extensive professional experience in barging.

Passengers, who are made to feel at home and rapidly become friends, appreciate their friendly, cheerful personalities and sense of humor. Jason and Dawn are committed to offering guests not only quality in terms of the barge and its amenities, but also flexibility with regard to cruising, excursions and the food and beverages on board.

Cruising routes allow for 3 to 4 hours cruising per day, stopping each evening either in one of the towns mentioned in the itineraries or in a country village, depending on guests' preferences.

Wherever possible cruises can be tailored to fit in with passengers' requirements.

It is the Saroche's aim to provide a cruise tailored for you.

Guests are warmly welcomed on board and during the Champagne reception are encouraged to regard Saroche as their cruising home.
