Luxury Hotel Barge L’Art de Vivre

The Luxury Hotel Barge L’Art de Vivre was built in England during World War One as a supply vessel to the Allied troops battling in the Somme.

Today her life is a little less dramatic as she cruises one of France’s longest-established canals, the Canal du Nivernais.

She is very much a traditional barge in style, with original wood and brass features that emphasise her heritage and create a warm and inviting interior atmosphere. The comfortable, compact cabins all have modern en suite facilities and the delightful saloon combines contemporary leather with more traditional furnishings.

Outside, there is a sun deck to relax on with a glass of wine as you glide through the pretty Burgundy countryside and a spa pool to soak in. You can explore the ever-present towpath on foot or on one of the barge’s bicycles towpath, before rejoining the L’Art de Vivre at one of the locks up ahead.

This region of Burgundy with its charming villages and centuries-old history simply oozes charm and your cruise aboard L’Art de Vivre is a journey back in time along a magical waterway.

With a maximum of only eight passengers onboard (four rooms) L’Art de Vivre is perfect to charter for families or friends wishing to experience France in a safe and comfortable way and to creating your own unique travel memories and experiences.

Like the majority of luxury hotel barges in Europe, L’Art de Vivre operates between April and October every year. Cruises typically start on a Sunday afternoon and finish on the following Saturday morning.
