French Hotel Barge Properite
Enjoy the space and comfort of luxury accommodations aboard the French hotel barge Prospérité who offers some of the largest rooms and highest level of amenities you will find on any of the barges in France.
Prospérité was expressly designed and constructed to meet the expectations of upscale travelers desiring to experience the luxury of barge travel in France. During the seven days and six nights of your cruise, Prospérité will serve as your floating home. At 128 ft long, this spacious barge accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 large staterooms (270 ft² each).
Time seems to stand still as the barge slowly motors by quaint stone churches and well-kept houses, periodically pausing at moss-covered locks, as it makes its leisurely way from one town to the next. You can catch up on your reading on deck, enjoy a delicious, well-prepared repast from the fully equipped kitchen or simply relax to the gentle sounds of water lapping against the hull, and enjoy the quiet sensation that comes with unplugging yourself from the 24/7 world on a luxury barge cruise.
Prospérité features daily excursions in their Mercedes minibus into the surrounding countryside. You will explore the local châteaux or sip the wares of one of the many local vineyards.
Barge tours are best enjoyed slowly, completely, fully. While you savor the taste of a crusty baguette whisked fresh from the oven, the exquisite bouquet of a glass of vintage burgundy or cognac, or the velvet texture of aged Camembert or Brie melting upon the tongue, luxiuriate on a French barge cruise. Pamper yourself and take a week cruising centuries-old canals through the verdant fields and picturesque villages of provincial France.
