BURGUNDY, aboard the 12-passenger La Belle Epoque
17 and 24 August, 2014 – offer price from £2,290pp  (normal price £3,090pp)
Renowned for its more than 60,000 acres of vineyards, Burgundy produces some of the finest wines in the world; the cruise features wine tours and “up close and personal” excursions into the everyday lives of its people, not usually experienced by the average tourist.

GASCONY & BORDEAUX, aboard the 8-passenger Rosa
10, 17 and 24 August, 2014 – offer price from £1,680 (normal price from £2,480pp)
With wine a major theme, hotel barge Rosa’s itinerary is perfect for lovers of fine vintages. Guests are invited to explore the 2,000-year-old wine-growing region of Bordeaux with its special ‘terroir’ – the unique composition of the land that imparts a unique quality to the wine – and participate in excursions that include a wine tasting at Château Bausejour-Bescot near Saint Emilion and visits to the medieval towns of Nerac, Vianne and Le Mas d’Agenais.

All bookings with the special offer applying are ‘subject to availability’, based on 2 people sharing a cabin.
