A voyage made for the bon vivant
Cruising the majestic Rhône from Tain to Arles, take in the charms of Provence aboard Belmond Napoléon
Recline in luxury as peaceful meadows drift by and weeping willows dip into the water. Around-the-clock indulgence awaits. Sip cocktails under the stars and feast on local delicacies. Tour the postcard-perfect hillsides of Provence, then quench your thirst surrounded by world-class vines.
Napoléon is ideal for large, convivial gatherings, with its six sizeable cabins each boasting an en-suite bathroom. There’s also a stately lounge with a computer and WiFi connection. In addition to an elegant dining room, there’s a shaded area on the spacious sun deck where you can spend blissful hours soaking up the views or sip a cool drink and linger over a delicious alfresco lunch. Explore the wondrous sights of Provence by day; in the evening, sink into the onboard jacuzzi to watch the sun set, or swap stories over cocktails beneath the starry sky.
