Champagne welcome at the start of your barge cruise
“We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Serenity Barge gliding along the river through the Champagne region of France. Our hosts, Claire and Graham, did everything they could do to cater to our wishes. The dinners they arranged for us were delicious. The outings were informative and tailored to our preferences. Salt and Pepper, the cats added a personal touch. Watching Claire expertly maneuver the locks was an adventure in itself. When it came to being pampered, imagine lazing in a hot tub and sipping champagne produced from the vines surrounding you. Ahh, this was the life. Viva la France!.”
