This beautiful barge carries just 8 lucky guests on France's oldest canal, the Canal de Briare.

What we love

The charming Renaissance is a former French cargo vessel, converted into a deluxe hotel barge in 1997 and fully refurbished in 2015. The beautiful interiors are designed to evoke the feel of a French manor house, and guests are accommodated in four generously proportioned suites, all with en-suite facilities. There is a spacious semi-covered sundeck with loungers, an al fresco dining area and a small spa pool, while inside is a cosy saloon with a fully-stocked bar.
