Experience the peace and tranquility of the Canals of Burgundy and fly-in with Flitestar.


A serene exploration of France's waterways


Relish every moment of your journey as you glide along on one of our seven luxurious barges.

We make it a point of pride to ensure your every need is taken care of. Relax in stylish comfort and dine on sensational cuisine as you drift along picturesque riverbanks, then moor for tailor-made excursions. Our customised itineraries range from truffle hunting and go-karting to hot air ballooning and horse-riding.

The Belmond experience is defined by incomparable service, timeless retreats rich with culture, natural wonder and genuine care. Within our walls, our guests will once again experience moments of magic, among those who matter most. 

As your private cruise begins, toast your friends and family with a glass of exquisite champagne. Spend time reconnecting with loved ones, relaxing on deck as you soak up the views. Then head ashore together to discover the art of truffle hunting, go-karting or the secrets of Burgundy’s vineyards.

Accompany your chef to the market and pick out fresh produce for the evening’s dinner. Celebrate good times with your cherished companions and let your cares drift away.
