Merry, Merry Christmas Specials!

Christmas is coming… and so are some exclusive special offers on luxury barge cruises…

If you are thinking of travelling on a luxury fully crewed barge next year, this is a fantastic opportunity to benefit from an excellent discount on the cruise, or the added “gift” of a free nights’ accommodation!

Offers include free hotel nights pre or post-cruise, and significant discounts on specific departure dates. Please apply to me personally at info@toujoursfrance.com.au for further information, specific details and dates

Here are just a few of the barges and itineraries you can choose from…


Cruising the magnificent Scottish Highlands
A cruise aboard this barge encompasses the true ‘spirit’ of Scotland and is one of the most spectacular cruises in our collection, through the Caledonian Canal and lochs of the Great Glen. From Fort William to Inverness, magnificent scenery, historic castles, picturesque villages and whisky tastings await you!
Visit Downton Abbey!
The cruise on “Magna Carta” on the Royal River Thames from Henley to Hampton Court is always magnificent, including visits to Hampton Court Palace, Windsor Castle & Clivedon… but in 2020, on 24th May, 2nd & 9th August you will also enjoy an exclusive visit to Highclere Castle, aka Downton Abbey!



Aristocracy, Wine & Chateaux
La Belle Epoque is an old favourite of ours – one of the longest operating barges on the canal, with gorgeous old-fashioned charm, a beautiful sundeck and a fantastic itinerary in stunning Burgundy. Highlights include dining with French aristocracy in their private chateaux and tasting wine in the beautiful town of Chablis.

Amazing chef Mike!

Cuisine, Wine & Medieval Towns
Finesse is a superb contemporary style Ultra-Deluxe barge in southern Burgundy which offers extra large cabins, large salon with picture windows and a demonstration galley for “Masterchef” lovers, along with a spacious deck for relaxing in the sun.

Walled Towns & Perched villages
We absolutely love Athos and so do our clients. Wonderful cruising in the beautiful south of France, on this lovely classic barge with large sundeck to lap up the southern sunshine. Dining al fresco as you float through the French countryside – what could be better?! On this cruise you will see the magnificent “fairytale” walled city of Carcassonne and the perched village of Minerve.

We have many other beautiful barges to choose from, on which there are a range of excellent discounts – please email me at info@toujoursfrance.com.au if you would like to speak to me further about a cruise and ask about the special Christmas offers that apply!
