Prospérité is one of the top barges in France.  In 2003, Prosperité was created by an American hotelier and represents a successful new approach. Original ideas such as the demonstration kitchen and the “open refrigerator” with drinks, snacks and desserts available 24 hours a day, reflect modern living and entertaining.



The Salon decor pairs Italian leather couches with French accent pieces and other beautiful touches. Along with the separate Dining Room, the Salon is very bright and spacious with beautiful panoramic windows, which provide a good view of the outside countryside while cruising.

The Dining Room has a table seating eight (8), decorated in elegant, contemporary style, and is the perfect place to enjoy the chef-prepared gourmet dinners.


The Dining Room also boasts a fully equipped demonstration kitchen where the chef gives planned and impromptu demonstrations in French and Continental cuisine during the cruise.


A spacious Sun Deck with hot tub is a glorious way to experience the passing scenery on the beautiful Burgundy waterways.

With deck chairs and tables, sun-umbrellas providing shade, and open bar available around the clock, guests can spend much time here relaxing or partying together.

Guests are also welcome to join the Captain to observe cruising techniques and procedures while going through the locks.


Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the onboard bicycles as often as they like.  Most People choose to disembark the barge at a lock to visit local villages, then return to the canal and meet the barge further along (the barge travels slowly; therefore, this is not a problem). Bikes are always onboard and ready to go for casual rides along the towpath or into the countryside.

A 9-seater air-conditioned minivan is also avalable for transfers and shore excursions.
