Capacity: 8 Guests
The 8-passenger Horizon II is, quite simply, a gorgeous barge, cruising on the scenic Briare Canal. New soft furnishings throughout, chosen in rich jewel tones, and great new bathrooms with heated towel racks are just a few of the many impressive amenities of this elegant vessel. An extensive refurbishment has added deep cherry paneling and cabinetry, complemented by lovely fabric selections, a hallmark of this fleet. Owned and operated by professional and highly regarded French Country Waterways, Horizon II is an ultra-deluxe barge cruising in the Briare/Sancerre region. Of particular note, cabins can be booked on an independent basis, providing the ultimate in canal cruising luxury for just two people. With many special touches featured on the cruise route, such as dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant, Auberge des Templiers in Les Bezards, and an excursion to the largest of the Loire Valley chateaux, the magnificent Chateau de Chambord, this stylish choice, with its cheerful and professional crew, is a solid winner.
