Wine & Water Hotel Barge, Burgundy France

Jump to last reply

After not being able to locate information about “Wine & Water” hotel barge prior to our May trip to France, I wanted to follow-up on our excursion with a word of praise for this lovely experience. We were actually the very first guests on their maiden cruise along the Burgundy Canal in late May 2012.

It is owned by a French couple, Max and Bea Renau who are consummate and delightful hosts. They own both rental flats in Dijon http://www.dijon-rentahome.com/ and just this year began their own barge cruises in Burgundy.

As Max is fond of saying he was actually “born on a barge” because his father was a barge captain. Max has been captaining high-end barges for thirty years and just this summer inaugurated his own barge called “Wine & Water” that cruises the Burgundy Canal.

Two helpful links are: http://www.dijon-rentahome.com/barge-cruise.html and http://www.burgundyeye.com/accommodation/hotel-barges-and-boating/dijon-area/wine-water/

The trip fit our needs perfectly since it lasted 4 nights and combined some delicious meals on board and some in local restaurants. Max is a wine connoisseur, and we had marvelous bottles each afternoon and evening with many premier and grand cru wines.

The barge has been totally renovated over the last year (from a previous incarnation), and the three staterooms are lovely. We can highly recommend our experience. [Note: I am cross-posting this to both Trip Advisor and Fodor’s.]
