The 8-passenger Hirondelle cruises some of the most tranquil and beautiful waterways in all of Europe: the Canal de Bourgogne, the Canal du Centre, the Canal du Rhône au Rhine and the River Saône. The vessel is a charming floating “country home”, featuring four lavishly appointed staterooms with large windows that open well above the water line and en suite facilities. Excursions to the region’s wineries and places of interest are provided by minibus but there are also bicycles on board which guests can use to explore the local area. Outside, the Hirondelle has a spacious sundeck with comfortable seating and sunshades, providing the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the scenery of Burgundy and Franche-Comte. The vessel is available for both charter and individual bookings from April through to October.
