We are cruising the most scenic French canals and rivers, offering Grand wine and gourmet holidays combined with romantic barge trips and activity vacations. Our exquisite hotel barge has only 4 Suites, thus ensuring the most spacious and comfortable environment for our guests.
Please take your time to explore our almost 100 years old barge. Feel the atmosphere of Burgundy already virtually and do not hesitate to ask us any questions. It is our personal goal to ensure that everyone who’s setting foot on the gangplank of La Reine Pédauque feels like a Queen or King of ancient times.
