BARGE CRUISES: SEVEN DAYS/SIX NIGHTS
Special Places Travel Logo.  EMAIL: info@specialplacestravel.com or PHONE: 1-877-642-2743 (001.443.321.3614 outside US/Canada).The 18-passenger Le Phénicien combines the best of the Provence region -- cruising the Rhône River between Avignon and Aigues-Mortes -- with tranquil cruising on the Rhône-Sete canal amidst the marvelous natural beauty of the Camargue region. Le Phénicien's unique route allows it to meander through the Provence and the Languedoc-Roussillon regions, with thousands of years of culture, world-renowned wines, gastronomic food, glorious weather, and in surroundings of unspoiled nature.

Le Phénicien blends the spaciousness of a larger river cruiser with the intimacy of a well-designed and decorated canal barge. There are three cabins with twin beds and six cabins with a queen bed, all with ensuite bathroom with shower. The 1000-foot salon offers plenty of comfortable seating and dining area with large picture windows. While cruising, you can have a drink at the bar or take a comfortable seat in the lounge area and relax with friends, play chess, read a book, listen to music, or do nothing else but enjoy the sights as the barge floats through the French countryside.

Your meals will be specially prepared by the Chef from selected local ingredients. Breakfast and Lunch usually consist of a buffet while dinner is a traditional sit down, plated meal. You will discover a wide variety of local traditional specialties accompanied by great local wines, Champagne and other sparkling wines. Even the most sophisticated connoisseurs will be surprised!

Le Phénicien is owned and operated by the Joly family, who are natives of the region the barge cruises through. Two to six hours a day are dedicated to cruising which includes one or two excursions each day that are organized especially for you. You will visit some of the more well known historical sites and monuments, such as Avignon and Arles. If you're interested in cycling, you can cycle on your own into the nearby countryside and villages when the barge is moored from late afternoon to the following morning using the bikes provided on board. Or for more cycling you can choose the bike and barge program for groups. Le Phenicien also offers special golf and wine and culinary cruises. See the sample itineraries below for these cruises.

We have known the Joly family and Le Phenicien since it started cruising in 2004 and they still provide the same great French cruise experience in Provence. We have stayed on board several times and found that the cuisine and wines are always excellent. The excursions are often led by local guides who will give you a real understanding of the Provence area.

Bike and Barge Program
Le Phénicien offers a special bike and barge program for charter groups and designated individual cabin bike and barge weeks. The program includes all meals, wines with lunches and dinners and an open bar. Custom bicycles and helmets are provided as well as route maps and suggested itineraries. The daily average bike ride is about 35 km but serious bikers may opt for up to an 80 km route daily. The routes are mostly flat or reasonably hilly and are ideal for bikers who have experience with similar rides.

Passenger Comments:


All the cabins on the boat, although configured differently, were all equally decorated and comfortable. The service on the boat was wonderful. Everyone was kind and absolutely delightful to be around. We felt as though we were with family. Every meal was a delight for all the senses. Our excursions were designed to enhance our appreciation and understanding of the region. But as active as we were, we never felt pressured or exhausted. The high points were: the staff and owner - wonderful people. The boat is very nicely designed. Less formal than other barges we've been on, which was nice (very relaxing). High points were: walking all over the Pont du Gard, all the meals on board, Jim's cooking lessons, Chateauneuf, the Camargue ranch. The weather was ideal (not hot nor cold), the region was a favorite of ours, and we were looking forward to this trip for a year. It could have not gone better. Highly recommend this trip.
W.M. & J.W., GA, USA, June 2016

It was the highlight of our 4 1/2 weeks in southern France and NE Spain. We have always been independent travelers, non-tour, so weren't sure how we would like it. But it exceeded all our expectations. All our needs and wishes were met and exceeded. Every single member of the crew was unfailingly and sincerely pleasant, good at his/her job, and went above and beyond the call of duty. Michel's knowledge of the area and how to get things done there is amazing. The meals and wines were incredible. It was so fun to know that what we were eating and drinking was local to our mooring area. The Camargue is an area we had never visited as it's not easy to see it by public transportation. This was the perfect way to do it. It was not a busy route, so was tranquil, relaxing, and very beautiful. The locks, bridges, and water birds all added to the enjoyment.
S.T. OR USA April 2015

We had a wonderful trip. The boat was immaculate, the food tasty and ample, the service impeccable, the tours interesting and informative. The high points were 'Foie gras night', swimming next to the Pont du Gard, Les Baux (a medieval town/fortress). Really, it is hard to pick one or two things. My husband enjoyed the lovely tour guide in the Papal Palace at Avignon quietly demonstrating the acoustics of the chapel by singing the Agnus Dei in her silvery voice. Others loved the ranch and its owners, right out of central casting.
B.W. NY, USA, August 2014

Was great. Very 'decadent'. A really special and memorable vacation. Got to experience French cuisine and hospitality first hand. The barge was very well run, spotlessly clean and with very professional staff for whom no request was too trivial or impossible.
