European Waterways Announce New Barging Holiday to Sancerre

01, April 2015: With recent tourism statistics confirming barging as among the fastest growing holidays being taken up by international visitors to Europe, renowned luxury cruising company European Waterways has announced some exciting new itineraries to keep up with demand during the 2015 summer season. 

Exploring Beautiful Burgundy 

A spokesperson from European Waterways (Europe's largest luxury hotel barge cruising company) confirmed they had recently announced several new options for the 2015 cruising season, including one through the stunning Sancerre wine region of Burgundy, in France. "We're very excited with this new itinerary aboard the beautiful restored vessel, Savoir Faire," the spokesperson said. "With weekly departures from the end of May through to August, this is one of the best ways to explore the region and experience the famous wines of Burgundy." 

With plenty of opportunities to sample the famous wines of the region, the route of the Savoir Faire will take in the Canal e Briare and the Canal Lateral à la Loire, travelling between Rogny-les-Sept-Ecluses and Marseilles-les-Aubigny. Guests will be able to leave the vessel to go ashore to explore the attractions of this stunning area, but one of the major highlights is the crossing of the Pont Canal de Briare, the incredible 2,172 ft. aqueduct over the Loire River, designed by Gustave Eiffel. 

The extensive European Waterways' itinerary of Sancerre also includes shore excursions to the famous floral park at Apremont-sur-Allie, a visit to Rogny-les-Septs-Ecluses, the 1,000-year-old moated Château de Saint-Fargeau, Gien (famous for its beautiful glazed pottery) and the medieval UNESCO World Heritage site of Chârité-sur-Loire. 

The Savoir Faire began life as a grain barge, in Belgium, and, now, many decades later, she has been extensively refurbished to become part of the fleet of luxury hotel barges traversing the canals of France – complete with six superbly-appointed staterooms and two sundecks. The Savoir Faire plays host to some of European Waterways most popular canal cruises.
