Two for the price of one in luxury on the canals or Burgundy in France

Secure savings of over $5000 on one of the best Hotel Barge cruises in France

This journey begins with a drive from Paris to Auxerre and the beautiful River Yonne, the river on which in mediaeval times they floated logs down to build the city of Paris.

The cruising and sightseeing itinerary will visit nearby Chablis with its flinty dry white wines, Avalon and UNESCO listed V├ęzelay and Clemency in the heart of rural Burgundy.

Interwoven with sections of the Nivernais canal, the cruise passes through 35 locks and past a succession of pretty stone-built villages following the path taken by Romans and pilgrims alike. It is a lush green rural landscape with Charolais cows grazing in the meadows and a rich history of gastronomy which includes such specialities as Coq au vin & Boeuf bourguignon.

Rarely is there such a great offer on such a lovely barge in such a picture perfect region of Burgundy in France. Cruising holiday specialists Outdoor Travel, based in Bright, Victoria, have a very limited number of cabins available where two can travel for the price of one on these dates in May:
