Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
The brand new and gorgeous 8-passenger Burgundy barge SAVOIR VIVRE has announced a Burgundy Dine-Around Itinerary for 2010! Perfect for food-loving couple groups or families who want to float, bicycle and sightsee by day and "dine around" in Burgundy by night! Dinner will be taken at authentic auberges known only to discerning locals - some deep in untouched countryside, some canal front. Barging legend Francois Everson, assisted by his mate, June (picture attached) will operate SAVOIR VIVRE. Calling on 20 years in Burgundy and superior personal contacts, Francois will present the best vineyards, markets, chateaux - and yes, he's selected the dining venues too.
A brand new way to barge demands a brand new vessel. SAVOIR VIVRE is modern and comfortable - but with an easy, breezy feel. With quality wood paneling and decorator fabrics used throughout, the barge is appealing. Yet its design is also ingenious. Not a square inch of space is wasted. The kitchen is "hidden", the salon converts to a dining room in minutes, and the cabins boast good storage space, quality bedding, the right lighting and modern, tiled en-suite baths. Relax on either of two decks and watch amazing scenery go by.
Breakfast and lunch will be on SAVOIR VIVRE. But guests will want to save their appetites for dinner at such venues as "Auberge Saint Martin," hidden in a tiny village and known only to insiders. Or dine on the terrace at "L'Eire du Temps" - surrounded by centuries old buildings. The spectacular setting of the Chateau Saint Sabine (pictured) will enhance the gourmet dining experience there. Look across to the hilltop, Medieval village of Chateaux-en-Auxois, all lit up and lovely. (All reservations will be made before guests arrive and chauffeured transfers provided to and from the restaurants.) Six nights of authentic cuisine will provide memorable dining memories to last a lifetime. SAVOIR VIVRE is a perfect cruise for foodies.
Ellen Sack, The Barge Lady has consulted with SAVOIR VIVRE owner James Waggott from the beginning. Ellen says, "James represents a new and youthful approach to barging. The emphasis is on authentic cuisine and a direct connection to the culture and people of Burgundy. Perfect for guests who value experiences over amenities!"
Space is still available in 2010. Six night cruises depart every Sunday from Dijon for the 2010 dates April 18 to October 24. The charter price for 8 guests is $20,000 - and does not include the cost of six dinners off the barge. Guests settle directly with the restaurants. Savoir Vivre accepts Visa, Mastercard and AmEx. Call The Barge Lady at (800) 880-0071 to discuss a 2010 cruise on SAVOIR VIVRE.
