Amaryllis is flawlessly operated as a traditional luxury hotel, and just might be the most regal and elegant barge in all of France.
From antique furniture in the salon, to the chandeliers created by Italian craftsmen, to the Villeroy and Bosch china on the dining room table, the decor throughout this vessel is a treasure trove of elegant yet welcoming European design.
Plush seating and picture windows in the salon encourage guests to linger and relax a with good book and a glass of wine, or just marvel at the beautiful Burgundian scenery drifting by. The incredibly spacious cabins exude voluptuous comfort, while the immaculately bathrooms feature every amenity, including double sinks and heated towel bars.
Guests who enjoy outdoor activities will thrill to the many opportunities for cycling and strolling along the canal’s marvelous towpaths, and those who wish to relax onboard are invited to lounge on the sun deck, perhaps after taking a refreshing plunge into the swimming pool.
Menus are seasonally inspired by the region’s bounty, thanks to modern interpretations of classic Burgundian cuisine, and an attentive crew serves the carefully curated wine pairings. Excursions reflect the best of the Cote d’Or region’s attractions and activities, introducing guests to established and emerging vineyards, working artisans, and local culture.
