Welcome to the Après Tout

With over 30 years’ experience in the luxury hotel barge industry, Rory and Caroline are specialists in creating beautiful and memorable cruises for you, your family, and friends along some of the most beautiful waterways and regions of France.

Our luxury barge can carry up to a maximum of six people, in glorious surroundings for a six night all-inclusive vacation. The vessel cruises through the heart of France on the tranquil canals and scenic rivers, where there are a crew of five waiting to take care of your every need.

Each day the gourmet food is expertly prepared by Caroline, a highly experienced Corden Bleu chef, and all meals are paired with superb regional wine, most of which are Premier and Grand Cru.

We love to showcase these fabulous areas to our guests and have some wonderful memories of special weeks with so many of our passengers, many of whom have become good friends. You can read some of the lovely comments on our TripAdvisor page.

With such beautiful sites and stunning water ways on offer, what better way to enjoy them than by sipping a Grand cru or glass of Champagne on our beautiful teak deck, or from the hot tub whilst watching the world slowly pass by. You’ll feel so at home… You’ll feel like you never want to leave!
