European Waterways is offering a selection of 2017 late-season specials with 10% off for cabins and whole boat charters.
The specials apply to hotel barges that cruise France’s wine-making regions during the annual grape harvest season.
These include L’Impressionniste in Burgundy, Anjodi on the Canal du Midi and Panache in Alsace & Lorraine.
Prices are based on double occupancy and the six-night cruises must be booked by August 29.
Among the hotel barges offering 10% off on selected departures is the 12-passenger L’Impressionniste, which cruises in France’s Burgundy region. The vessel goes to famous vineyards, including Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils, where guests are treated to a private tour of its extensive cellars and enjoy a private wine tasting.
Other tours on the itinerary are visits to medieval towns, châteaux and villages.
European Waterways is offering 10% off per cabin on the vessel’s October 1 departure, a saving of £750 off the £7,500 price for two people. Its October 1 and October 15 departures are also eligible for 10% off the price of a whole boat charter, a saving of up to £4,220.
Plus, a 10% commission applies to travel agent bookings.
