Truly France as it should be seen


Sunday: Paris to Escommes

Meet your chauffeur in a chosen place for your journey down to the Saroche at Escommes on the canal du Bourgogne. You will be welcomed with a champagne reception and have plenty of time to settle in before Dawn, your personal chef, presents you with the first of many gourmet meals.


Monday: Escommes - Chateauneuf

Today's cruise takes you down the flight of locks from the summit pound to the foot of beautiful Chateauneuf en Auxois. After lunch Jason will take you to visit a chocolatier for a delightful tasting and talk on this wonderful product.

With both lunch and dinner aboard today, relax and enjoy burgundy and canal life at its best.


Tuesday: Chateauneuf en Auxois - Pont D'Ouche

After breakfast Jason will drive you up the hill to the village of Chateauneuf en Auxois. This 11th century chateau is a famous landmark in the area and hides a quaint hamlet behind it. After a tour of the chateau there is plenty of time to enjoy exploring the village before returning to the barge for lunch.

In the afternoon we set sail and head down stream to Pont d'Ouche, our mooring for the night. There is a tow path all the way, and you can walk or cycle or perhaps enjoy the pace of life from the deck. Once moored up, Dawn will once again regale you with another gourmet feast.


Wednesday: Pont d'Ouche - Veuvey sur Ouche

Today we leave the Saroche and head over the hills to Beaune. In the morning Jason will do a guided tour of the Hospice du Beaune, as famous for its wines as it is for its tiled roof!

Today for lunch you will dine out in a gourmet restaurant in Beaune.

After lunch Jason will take you into the cote du Beaune, known for its soft reds and complex delectable white wines. You will walk in the vines and be given an explanation as to why Burgundy wines are so well renowned, before going for a comprehensive tasting in a private winery.

Returning to Saroche for a sundowner cruise before a light dinner on board.


Thursday: Veuvey sur Ouche - La Bussiere

After breakfast we set sail and cruise down to La Bussiere, with another gentle tow path for those who wish to walk or cycle. Lunch is on board the Saroche. In the afternoon Jason will drive you into the Cote du Nuits where first you will visit the Clos du Vougeot, the 11th century Cistercian monastic winery, now home to the Knights of the round table of wine tasting, before heading into one of the villages for a tasting. The cote du Nuits is famous for its red wines, and Jason will show you why the world raves about the Pinot Noir from this area.


Friday: La Bussiere - Gissey

Market Day. Dijon is the capital of Burgundy, once home to the Dukes of Burgundy and home to Gustaf Eiffel, who designed the market square. After a walking tour of the old town, you will have plenty of time to enjoy and explore the market and enjoy the classic French shops of Dijon.

We return to the Saroche for lunch before setting sail for Gissey our destination for the week. This beautiful village nestled in the heart of the Ouche valley is classically French and no trip would be complete without exploring the village.

Tonight Jason will be your host for Captains dinner where Dawn will round of your culinary experience with another gourmet delight.
