Special Places Travel Logo.  EMAIL: info@specialplacestravel.com or PHONE: 1-877-642-2743 (001.443.321.3614 outside US/Canada).The 6-passenger Fleur de Lys is one of the most impeccably appointed barges in the world, with a gracious elegance and amenities that epitomize the concept of ultimate luxury. Similar in size to a large hotel barge carrying up to 22 passengers, the Fleur de Lys accommodates just six guests in 2500 square feet of living space. We have visited the Fleur de Lys many times and think the interior decor is quite stunning, particularly its collection of authentic Indian furnishings, ornate fabrics and art work.

Each of her three staterooms (240-320 sq ft) feature a canopied king or two twin size beds, dressing area and full ensuite bathrooms with twin basins. Two of the cabins have a bathtub/shower configuration and and are located on the lower deck and one has a shower and is on the main deck. The cabin on the main deck is perfect for those passengers who have difficulty with stairs. The stately salon with its grand piano and large picture windows is rich in texture and comfort, and the separate dining room has been tastefully decorated to host the most elegant five course candlelight dinners. For your pleasure, the Fleur de Lys has a heated plunge pool on its main deck.

The Fleur de Lys cruises the classic Burgundy Canal bordering France's famous Côte d'Or - composed of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune - where the legendary wines that are permitted to bear the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus labels are grown and available for you to enjoy. You'll recognize names like Meursault, Montrachet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Pommard and Santenay and sample wines that are rarely available outside the borders of France. She also cruises the River Saône and the Canal du Centre (built 1783-1791 to link the Loire and Saône rivers) visiting towns and villages enroute such as Beaune, Dijon, St Jean de Losne, and Chalon-sur-Saône.

Passenger Comments:


The cabins were beautiful, the meals and wines were great, the service was excellent and the excursions in Burgundy were very nice.
J.L., Hong Kong, August 2016

Overall a great experience.The cabins were wonderful, service was beyond expectations, meals were great, wines were good.
J&S P. CO USA August 2015

The Fleur de Lys crew were so good at anticipating things we might need, all the crew were friendly without being intrusive. Every meal was a work of art! We really enjoyed all the specially selected wines. Our cabin was large and comfortable. I enjoy history and have been on lots of "historical tours" but rarely have I run across a guide with the enthusiasm of Michael when he gave his lectures. We also especially enjoyed the door to door Paris transfer service.

FLEUR DE LYS'S ITINERARIES


SAMPLE ITINERARY*
Burgundy: Canal de Bourgogne
Dijon to Vandenesse- en-Auxois 2017

Highlights

--Château de Pommard: a delightful privately owned Château and renowned wine domain, built in the Regency style in 1726 by Vivant Micault, Secretary to King Louis XV. The new Château replaced a feudal château that had been mistreated somewhat by history. From the moment it was built, Château Vivant Micault regained its original splendour and, in its turn, played host to distinguished guests. Bonaparte himself is said to have honoured the Château with a visit! The visit includes a tour of the grounds and domain, the magnificent cellars and of course a wine tasting of the domain's finest appellations.

--Hôtel-Dieu in Central historic Beaune: A fascinating insight into the life and times of Chancellor Nicolas Rolin spanning 500 years of Burgundian history – with its gothic facade, varnished roof tiles and flamboyant colours, it makes up part of the patrimony of the Hospices de Beaune, a charitable institute created in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins. A recent exhaustive inventory includes 2,500 pieces of furniture and some 2,500 objects (tapestries, paintings, sculptures etc.) – a fascinating and informative tour.

--Abbaye de la Bussière: Lunch in this gastronomic restaurant, a stunning location and combination of architecture, history and gastronomy. Founded in 1131 by Etienne Harding 3rd Bishop of Citeaux, the Abbey counted 300 resident monks at the end of the 13th century. Although now a privately owned luxury hotel, the Abbey has lost none its majestic charm and attraction – an unforgettable treat.

--Dijon Market Day:
After an historical tour with your guide, what better way to enjoy a town and region than by visiting the local market? A chance to savor the colours, flavors and aromas of local produce and some free shopping time in the capital of Burgundy.

--Clos de Vougeot:
Perfect for history, architecture and wine lovers and originally a simple wine farm built in the 12th century by the monks from nearby Abbey of Citeaux. In the 16th century a splendid Renaissance-style château was added to the existing buildings – a tribute to the incredible winegrowing prowess of the Cistercian Monks centuries ago. Many famous guests have been wined and dined at the several banquets held each year.
