About Le Papillon

Region: France
Location: Burgundy
Capacity: 5/6 Guests
Web Site: Click here


One of the most charming and successful barges operating in France, the 5/6-passenger Le Papillon enjoys a superb reputation—and thanks to Ollie, Le Papillon’s amazing cook, its cuisine is justifiably legendary. Appointed with extremely attractive exteriors and interiors, Le Papillon is lovingly operated by Brits Bill and Jenny Higgs, whose unerring adoration of the true canal barge experience sets a standard for others to follow. New bathrooms with Provencal tile and tons of deck space for sunning or chatting with the captain make Le Papillon the plus-perfect choice for families or those couples who want barging at its customized and personalized finest. Le Papillon has chosen to spend most of her time on an extremely scenic stretch of the Canal de Bourgogne, which follows Ouche Valley in the heart of rural Burgundy between Pont de Pany and Pont Royal. An excellent choice with superb service, extraordinary cuisine, an engaging crew, and super-charming “French Country” interiors.

Booked as: Either a hotel basis for 2 guests or charter for up to 6.

Meeting Point: Sundays in Paris at one central hotel for Burgundy cruises and transfer to/from the barge by van.  TGV train tickets from Paris to Montpellier are included for Canal du Midi cruises.  Four night cruises have pick-up and return in Dijon.
