12-star barge sailing through Burgundy

Decadent French river voyage from St-Jean-de-Losne to Lyon with Belmond

Belmond Afloat in France has unveiled details of a new week-long 12-star gastronomic barge voyage on the River Saône through Burgundy and Beaujolais.

Departing St Jean de Losne on 9 August 2020, the sailing adventure features a Michelin-starred restaurant every day, offering a limited number of guests the opportunity to experience some of the most celebrated cuisine in France, while also alighting for tours and private tastings along the way.

Paul Bocuse Restaurant

The gourmet experiences aboard Belmond Napoléon begin en-route to St Jean de Losne on day one, with a lunch stop at the two-Michelin-starred La Côte Saint-Jacques, just outside of Auxerre.

Day two includes a lunch sojourn at the three-Michelin-starred Maison Lameloise in Seurre, followed by a stop at the historic Clos de Vougeot, an ancient chateau that is now home to the Burgundian wine society, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin. The following day includes a private tour of the fabled Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, venturing behind its gothic façade to discover 500 years of Burgundian history and treasures including 17th-century murals, tapestries, paintings and furniture. Lunch is at the Michelin-starred Loiseau des Vignes, the first restaurant in Europe to offer an entire wine list by the glass.

Dinner on day four is another off-barge experience at the Michelin-starred Aux Terrasses in Tournus, followed up the next evening in Montmerle where guests dine at the world-famous, three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Georges Blanc. On day six, Belmond Napoléon arrives in Lyon and residents visit the city’s newly launched Cité Internationale de la Gastronomie, and enjoy their final dinner at the two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Paul Bocuse.

Belmond Napoléon has a capacity of 12 passengers, with the Epicurean Burgundy: A 12-star cruise priced from €7,350 per person (or €88,200 for the full charter).
