Fleur de Lys hotel barge

Gracious elegance and pure Orient-Express style, make a journey aboard The Fleur de Lys the ultimate in luxury barging.

Constructed as a freight vessel at Oostkamp in Belgium in 1941, Fleur de Lys plied the waterways of Europe with a varied cargo.

Now, she gently travels the classic Burgundy route, passing through France’s famous Côte d’Or. Drift past vineyards home to legendary regions such as Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune where Grands Crus wines can be savoured.

Fleur de Lys also cruises the River Saône and the Canal du Centre, visiting delightful towns and villages en route.

Fleur de Lys sleeps 6 and boasts a stately lounge with a Grand Piano and large windows that panoramically frame the passing countryside.

Each of the 3 en-suite cabins are very spacious with 4 poster style beds, dressing room and beautiful tiled bathroom with either bath/shower combination or large shower.

The Fleur de Lys is furnished with authentic pieces collected on a trip to India 30 years ago. Of particular interest is the Telegraph that now stands in the lounge and acts as a night light. This gem of an item was discovered for sale on a street corner. A price was agreed with the vendor which included shipping. The Telegraph duly arrived 6 months later!

The separate dining room accommodates the most elegant candlelit dinners while the double state rooms feature canopied beds and en-suite bathrooms. Fleur de Lys also has a heated pool on its upper deck.

With a stately lounge and large windows that frame the passing countryside, this péniche-hôtel offers a cruise to remember. Exceptional on board dining and the chance to join in local life enhance this great experience.
