A well-appointed, chic, and comfortable barge, the Meanderer is proudly owned and operated by Captain George and Tour Guide Susan Kovalick. This personable couple make it all look easy due to their pre-barge stints in the travel, restaurant, and fashion industries.
As well, their personal lives – George grew up in Paris, Susan in London – and their personal interests of bicycling, hiking, boating, cuisine, history, and the arts – match them perfectly to the lifestyles of their guests. George is an avid cyclist and loves taking guests out on extended bikes rides! This idyllic cruise showcases the pastoral charms of the Canal de Briare with visits to family-owned chateaux, wine sampling in the vineyards of Sancerre, and an excursion to Palace of Fontainebleau. Gourmet indulgences such as this decadent dessert are created by the onboard Chef. Queen or twin bedded cabins. The services of the barge include round trip chauffeured transfers to/ from Paris. This canal is close to Paris, under a two-hour drive. Enjoy this short video to learn more about life aboard the barge Meanderer.
