'La Belle Époque'- Burgundy Canal (2016)

Graceful 'La Belle Époque' drifts through Burgundy on a delightful itinerary between Venarey-les-Laumes and Tanlay. Visit Abbaye de Fontenay and Château d'Ancy-le-Franc, pausing for a private wine tasting in the fertile Chablis region. Also visit hilltop Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, where Chocolat was filmed, as well as Noyers-sur-Serein on market day. Then relax before your gourmet dinner, perhaps with a glass of Champagne on deck as you watch the sun set over the lush Burgundy countryside. Unique itineraries can be arranged for chartering parties with special interests, such as family, walking, golf or wine appreciation.
