The Hautest, Most Luxurious Cruise of Burgundy, Franche-Comté & Beaujolais for 8

(Above: The Amaryllis)

Summer is over, whether we like it or not, and Fall is in the air.

Now might be just the time to venture out of L.A. for a little R&R. Abercrombie and Kent has just the jaunt for you.

You and 7 of your closest friends can cruise on ‘Amaryllis,’ a luxury barge in the Orient-Express collection, exploring some of the most romantic regions of France. From Burgundy & Franche-Comté, Amaryllis will venture lazily and luxuriously south through Beuaujolais to Lyon and the mighty River Rhône.

Amaryllis has a comfortable and tastefully appointed salon with large picture windows and a formal dining room for memorable candlelit dinners. Comfortable sun loungers and a heated pool beckon her guests on deck to watch the passing scenery.

The four spacious cabins are handsomely decorated in traditional style with a mixture of contemporary and antique Louis XV and XVI furniture, complemented by occasional tables from Li Puma of Florence.
