La Belle Époque was designed and furbished with the height of elegance and comfort in mind. Her handsomely furnished open plan lounge, bar area and dining room allow plenty of space for guests to spread out or cool down if it’s too hot on deck. The lounge and the dining room are wood panelled, with a large, splendid bar area dominating one side of the saloon. The sun deck is large with solid, high quality chairs and loungers plus a luxurious spa pool. Cabins are a good size and the private en suite bathrooms are furbished in light grey marble. This cruise route is exceptionally good for walking or cycling cruises due to the excellent tow path that follows the route for most of the itinerary. On this cruise, one gastonomic dinner will be taken ashore.
La Belle Epoque can also cruise in tandem with the Art de Vivre (taking 8 guests, and subject to availability), thus accommodating charter groups of up to 20 passengers.
