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, private bathroom facilities and the delightful salon combines contemporary leather with more traditional furnishings.

There is a sun deck to relax on with a glass of wine as you glide through the pretty Burgundy countryside, a relaxing spa pool and, of course, bicycles for exploring along the towpath before rejoining the hotel barge at one of the locks up ahead.

Your crew of four comprises a Captain, Master Chef, Tour Guide and Hostess, all with a love of the Nivernais Canal and secure in the knowledge that their vessel represents "L'Art de Vivre" itself. The region simply oozes charm and the cruise is a journey back in time along a magical waterway.

L'Art de Vivre is also available for "Tandem Cruises" with the 12-passenger La Belle Epoque for larger groups of up to 20 passengers.
