Relax on the splendid deck and splash in the petite swimming pool while the attentive crew serves canapes and pours champagne. Indeed, this is “The Good Life” aboard the Fleur de Lys!
Befitting the elite category of Ultra Deluxe barges, this opulent vessel’s signature exotic and elegant décor is enriched by ornate fabrics and furnishings, many of which are inspired by the colorful textiles of India. Stately cabins, each with a regal poster bed and separate dressing room, are among the most spacious and beautifully appointed in barging. Lavishly unexpected touches, such as the grand piano in the salon, add to the alluring ambiance.
Sightseeing spotlights Southern Burgundy’s modern charm and fascinating history, with escorted visits to family-owned chateaux; winetasting along the Route des Grands Crus; and walking tours of Dijon and Beaune, the region’s major towns. The sublime countryside is perhaps best discovered through active pursuits, such as strolling on the towpath or exploring the passing villages by bicycle.
Dining aboard the Fleur de Lys offers an authentically epicurean experience. Enjoy Chef’s selection of seasonally inspired recipes and contemporary French flavors while savoring the bounty of the iconic Cote d’Or vineyards, thanks to hand-selected wine pairings from local wineries. Luncheons will be served on the inviting deck (weather permitting), while candlelit dinner parties in the classically styled dining room are always an occasion.
For private parties of six who appreciate the finer things in life, Fleur de Lys blooms into the ultimate luxurious experience.
