French Barge Vacations ...Changing your world, one vacation at a time!

French Barge Vacations.com
Welcome to the luxury of European barging. An extensive matrix of canals were built in France and throughout Europe approximately 300 years ago to encourage and advance commerce. The typical hotel barge is a flat-bottomed boat, originally built for river and canal transport and designed for hauling cargo through the canals of Europe, but these vessels are no longer large enough to compete in this industry by today's standards. Owners of these barges renovated them to use as luxury Hotel Barges, and today are transporting vacation seekers through the same canals they once hauled grain or coal through. The Hotel Barges cruise these waterways at a leisurely pace offering passengers the chance to enjoy the marvelous sights that might otherwise be missed.

The luxury barges that French Barge Vacations represents were picked due to the personal relationships we have with the barge owners, the quality of the food and service onboard and of course the quality of the cabins, and barge it's self. French Barge Vacations teamed up with individual barge owners and we represent them as an extension of their barge crew. This way we know you will be personally satisfied with your barge vacation experience all the way from your initial booking inquiry till you're safely on your way back home. Enjoy the vacation of a lifetime as you cruise down the canals and waterways of France and Europe, while being served fine wines, gourmet meals, and delicious regional cheeses.
