Newly upgraded with deluxe amenities and premium accommodations, the Prosperite offers every contemporary luxury in 6-star French barging, from capacious cabins to the most experienced crew.
Setting the standard for quintessential Burgundian barging, Prosperite was designed to represent the best of modern living, relaxed socializing, and lively entertaining – indeed, a state of “prosperity” brought to vibrant life. From the smooth ride of brand new Mercedes mini-van to the gleaming napkin rings of the elegant table settings, this delightful attention to detail becomes apparent.
The good life as a guest while privately cruising on the Prosperite begins with the recently refreshed cabins. Identical in size at 265 square feet, four sumptuous staterooms provide generous havens of tranquil comfort, perfect for travelers for whom abundant personal space is a necessary luxury. Furthering the elevated onboard experiences, all cabin bathrooms have received a series of technical improvements, and now benefit from attractive enhancements such as larger shower stalls, greater storage, and underfloor heating.
Owned by an American hotelier, these hospitable touches on the Prosperite are evident throughout the spacious public areas as well. Burgundy’s breathtaking countryside is best viewed while lounging on the spacious deck or lazing in the hot tub. Miles of manicured towpath along the canal beckon for leisurely walks or, for those who prefer the thrill of discovery on two wheels, exhilarating rides on one of the barge’s brand new bicycles.
A demonstration kitchen and fully-stocked open bar speak to the Prosperite’s extraordinary dining program. Exploring Southern Burgundy’s great tradition of gastronomy, the gourmet cuisine focuses on local ingredients, regional specialties, and special recipes, all paired, of course, with the splendid wines and small batch spirits of the Cote D’or. Furthering the authentic culinary experiences, a dedicated Chef invites guests to enjoy impromptu cooking lessons as he crafts each day’s delicious meals.
Guests are authentically introduced to the Burgundian lifestyle throughout the area’s iconic attractions. Escorted visits to boutique vineyards, tours of family-owned estates, and time to stroll through charming villages are just some of the cultural excursions available. A personable and attentive crew augment the many prosperous memories made aboard the Prosperite.
