What a wonderful week. God has bestowed on each of you great talents and you have used them this week to the very fullest! You made us feel well cared for in every way. Each of you have such hospitality and a love for your ‘new friends’. Thank you for helping us love the French country side and French cooking ! This week has been such a pleasure cruising on the French canal !

Dear Courageous Captain Rory, Chef Extraordinaire Caroline, Charming Sommelier and Guide Nick and of course the lovely, creative hostess with the mostess – Hannah. You are the tremendous team of the Apres Tout – that we shall never forget. Thank you for your attention to detail, your personalities, knowledge and love of life! You have taken such great care of us this week that each have special, fond, wonderful memories to take with us. We are beyond delighted that we were with you all! Thank you, thank you!


We especially appreciate the great range of activities – wine, wine tasting, wine tour, wine schooling, barge trail walking, Burgundian history, art museums, market, museum, truffling, cycling and on and on; and what about the lovely clean cabins, fresh linens, personalized cocktails, creative menus, special napkin folding, fun music playing and where do we start to describe the food?! Beautiful fresh fruit and bread at breakfast – anything we would want. Lunches on the deck – gorgeous food prepared by Michelin star Caroline and accompanied by wines selected by Nick and then a fabulous dinner – different every day in every detail – wines again. All so special!! Besides just serving and selecting wines for meals – we appreciate Nick’s local knowledge of history, culture, and science of wine making.
