Formerly known as ‘Le Premier’, the wonderful ’Après Tout’ was originally built to navigate the canals and rivers of Europe, but has now been completely refurbished to the highest standard to welcome discerning charter groups of up to six guests. She provides luxurious accommodation in three equal en-suite twin or double staterooms, each with superbly appointed bathrooms with double showers and luxurious ‘Occitane’ bath products. The boat is tastefully furnished with light oak furniture throughout, creating a bright and airy atmosphere. The saloon has a beautiful French oak floor and the attention to detail is noticeable. The separate library with internet for guests (large screen Mac computer and wifi) is in a charming private study where guests can relax ‘away from it all’ at any time. The spacious sun deck extends the full length of the barge, so offering delightful al fresco dining. The gorgeous hot tub and luxurious sun loungers also offer relaxation for guests after a hard day’s sight-seeing, and is the perfect place for taking in the views of the beautiful countryside, or perhaps catching up with a favourite book.
The barge’s owner-operators, Rory and Caroline Macrae, have more than twenty years of experience in luxury barging at an international standard, and are the warmest of hosts. They will also readily invite you into their personal work areas such as Caroline’s sparklingly immaculate kitchen and, of course, Rory’s wheelhouse.
Their classic Burgundy cruise offers everything for the discerning traveller, but if you have specific interests (wine, food, history, antiques), they will be happy to create a personalised cruise week just for you. Please simply contact us with your ideas or a request.
