Multigenerational Cruising on a Barge in Burgundy

Imagine traveling on a floating home-away-from-home, on flat, calm, canal waters in the rural French countryside, just a couple hours from Paris. Slow-boat-barging, 50 miles, not per hour, but in six days, is a gift. It’s family-fun time, alone together, on a fully staffed péniche (a former commercial barge converted into a floating hotel for six to 12 passengers).

Try Cooking, Sailing or Lounging at Trisara Resort

It’s not like Trisara Resort even needs to distract guests with things to do. After all, each of the two- to seven-bedroom villas at this luxury resort on Phuket’s northwest coast comes with its own private infinity pool that overlooks either the Andaman Sea or tropical gardens. The private beachfront is dotted with lounge chairs and palm chairs aplenty as well as hammocks on which to laze. And the huge oceanfront infinity lap pool has built-in loungers, whirlpool jets and a multi-tiered patioscape. But the property also offers so much more.

Relais Bernard Loiseau

I’m an unabashed Francophile, a former French teacher and a frequent traveler to France. After seven trips to Burgundy, traveling by car and on barge and riverboat cruises with my late husband or with friends, I returned alone, last September, to experience the vendange (grape harvest). I was in the vineyards and wine cellars at Olivier Leflaive and Chateau de Pommard, and met winemakers, innkeepers, sommeliers, a masseuse and a mustard-maker at Fallot, in Beaune. And, after many years on my bucket list, I finally had the opportunity to stay at a famous gastronomic destination, Relais Bernard Loiseau. It also happens to be a warmly welcoming, family-friendly, family-operated inn with two indoor swimming pools, located in the naturally scenic region of the Morvan forest, with its granite mountains, lakes and outdoor adventures.
