If you're a foodie like me, then I am super excited to let you know about a fabulous barge cruise in Burgundy, France that takes you to a Michelin-starred restaurant every day for a week.
Luxury cruise line Belmond announced a new cruise package that will take up to 12 passengers to six different Michelin-starred restaurants across France. The six-night voyage goes from St-Jean-de-Losne to Lyon.
Cruising through Burgundy and Beaujolais, from St-Jean-de-Losne to Lyon, Belmond's guests are invited to dine at a different Michelin-starred restaurant each day - experiencing a total of 12 stars throughout the week.
Restaurants include the famous three-star Maison Lameloise in Chagny, and the three-star Georges Blanc in Vonnas.
Experience a unique gastronomic adventure as you dine out at a different Michelin-starred restaurant every day. Treat your palate to some of the most celebrated cuisine in France as you cruise through glorious Burgundy, alighting for fascinating tours and private tastings.
Includes table d'hote meals and complimentary beverages. Dine at a different Michelin-starred restaurant every day. All excursions including exclusive use of onboard bicycles. Private guide. Return transfer from Paris.
The trip ends with a dinner at two-starred Restaurant Paul Bocuse, where guests can order a black truffle soup that was created for French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing in 1975.
But there's more to this trip than Michelin stars. There's also a stop at the historic Clos de Vougeot, an award-winning vineyard where monks started making wine in the 12th century, and a private tour of the stunning Hotel-Dieu in Beaune, which was founded in 1443.
You can either charter the entire barge, which fits 12, for $96,000, or rent a cabin for $8,000 per person. Of course this includes all meals, as well as transfers. The Napoléon has six elegant cabins with en-suite bathrooms and giant windows, as well as an outdoor hot tub on board.
Belmond Cruises: The largest of the fleet, Belmond Napoléon is a grand and stately barge hosting parties of up to 12 guests in six decadent en-suite cabins. After a day of touring France's most iconic chateaus, feast on gastronomic delights and take a dip in the jacuzzi. Then raise a toast as you sail along the river to revel in charming views.
