Afloat in France operates five luxury péniche-hotels on the French waterways. The Grand Cru Cruise departs 14 July 2013. Throughout this special wine week, guests will taste 33 Grand Crus of Burgundy and along the way meet winemakers and also have exclusive access to private family run vineyards. Back on board the Amaryllys, apart from the cuisine created to complement the various wines, guests can enjoy the heated swimming pool - one of only two barges to have this luxury on the French canals. The week costs from £6,600 per person on an all-inclusive basis, including transfers from Paris. www.orient-express.com
