With our special offers and no single supplement for select April departures, traveling aboard one of our hotel barges is the perfect getaway for next Spring!"
Bonjour Aboard La Belle Époque
Celebrated in songs and captured in dazzling photographs, Paris in the Spring has been inspiring visitors for centuries. It's a bonus enjoyed by guests en route to La Belle Époque, who receive chauffeured transfer service to and from a designated hotel in central Paris. Then, cruising through Burgundy on some of Europe's most picturesque canals, they enjoy fine wines, tour charming medieval villages rich in history, and sample some of the finest local cuisine. The Burgundy landscape itself is also a treat in the Springtime, as it becomes home to blooming cherry blossoms and lilacs, forested hills, and rows of growing grape vines.
"La Belle Époque's itinerary is filled with trips that appeal to all the senses, from a private wine tasting at a renowned Chablis vineyard, to a tour of the exquisite Abbaye de Fontenay. Burgundy is a wonderful region for Spring enthusiasts, where you can feel the sunshine on your face, smell the cherry blossom and lilacs and drift slowly through a backdrop of rolling hills and vineyards," said Banks.
For Spring 2014, European Waterways' special offers include $2,000 off per cabin for the March 30th departure, no single supplement for April departures, and 10% off whole boat charters in April.

About European Waterways
The hotel barging experience is different from large vessel river cruising. It offers a slower paced, "gentle voyage of discovery" along the more intimate canals and waterways of Europe, allowing a small number of guests to become more fully immersed in the culture, history and gastronomy of the region. European Waterways is Europe's largest all-inclusive luxury hotel barging company, offering vacations in nine countries and carrying over 2,000 passengers a year. Founded nearly 40 years ago, they own, operate and market a private fleet of luxury hotel barges with cruises in France, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, England, Germany, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. Pioneers in hotel barging, they were the first company to operate a hotel barge on the Upper Nivernais in Burgundy, and the "real" Loire Valley. They are also the only cruise company offering barge cruises in Scotland and in the Venetian lagoon and River Po valley. Please visit http://www.gobarging.com for more information.
