La Nouvelle Etoile
Chablis Cruise

The La Nouville Etoile  slowly plies along picturesque inland waterways of Holland, France and Belgium lined with magnificent foliage and speckled with charming towns.

The La Nouville Etoile includes a large sundeck with jacuzzi, a main deck with a panoramic  lounge, a bar area with piano, a dining room, a fitness room and an elevator.  There are 4 oversized  suites (over 200 square feet), featuring flat screen monitors with internet connection, satellite television and video, double sink bathrooms with large showers.

Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout - from the selection of the linens, to the fresh fruit and flowers in each suite.  The warm, elegant teak interiors, subtle color schemes and pleasant furnishings invite you to relax and enjoy.

 

Paris to Auxerre

Sunday, Day 1 Paris
After being met by our driver you will taken to the barge moored in the heart of Paris for a wonderful champagne welcome. We have the afternoon to relax and cruise past Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. We will moor that night in the Latin Quarter where you will enjoy your first gourmet dinner on board. 

Monday, Day 2 Paris to Montereau
Scenic cruise out of Paris to Samois sur Seine. After lunch we will take an excursion to Chateau of Fontainebleau. To walk through Fontainebleau is to walk through the history of France. Every royal family has added its own architectural signature. Go on the charming village of Moret, where the Impressionist Sisley painted, and then rejoin the barge for an evening cruise to Montereau. 

Tuesday, Day 3 Montereau to Monterereau
A morning cruise on the upper part of the Seine to Monterereau, where the smaller river the Yonne meets us. After lunch we will take a drive out to the Medieval town of Provins, also called the "City of Roses". Here we will watch the magnificent show of the byrds of prey. Return to the barge moored in a beautiful country setting.

Wednesday, Day 4 Monterereau to Sens
A pleasant cruise along the beautiful river Yonne to the town of Sens, the oldest town in France. Visit the first great gothic cathedral, a magnificent building that dominates the main square. Time to shop, visit the museum or stroll around the town.

Thursday, Day 5 Sens to Joigny
Winding up on the Yonne River we reach the pretty riverside town of Joigny. The beautiful narrow cobblestone streets stretching their way up to wonderful churchs perched on top of the town takes you back to another era. In the afternoon we will take a drive out to Chablis. We select one of the small family operations for an intimate tour of their vineyards and cellar. 

Friday, Day 6 Joigny to Auxerre
Cruise along the upper reaches of the Yonne River to Auxerre, the most beautiful of all river towns whose skyline is punctuated by church spires and its streets lined with timbered 16th century houses. Time for shopping, visiting the old port or the 15th century clock tower. Farewell celebration on board enjoying your last elegant gourmet dinner. 

Saturday, Day 7 Auxerre
