France is eagerly anticipating hosting the Summer Olympics, an event that’s sure to bring a lot for us to enjoy. However, for those not attending the games, this period can mean hectic travel plans. With the influx of visitors, flights in July and early August tend to be busier and more expensive. If you’re looking for a peaceful and cost-effective alternative, why not consider one of the few remaining slots for a spring or autumn cruise aboard the C’est La Vie Luxury Hotel Barge.
Spring on the C’est La Vie is a season of rejuvenation. As the days grow warmer, the sun’s strength is ideal for basking without the overpowering heat. Evenings are cool, perfect for relaxing strolls along the canal or enjoying the scenic views from the deck. This season offers the perfect weather for exploring the French countryside, visiting local markets, and experiencing the vibrant bloom of nature.
Autumn brings a different kind of magic. The changing leaves create spectacular settings, transforming the waterways into a canvas of warm colours. The sun, still offering a comforting warmth, loses its summer intensity, making for pleasant days out. As dusk falls earlier, guests can enjoy the charm of dark evenings, perhaps with a glass of fine wine, experiencing the serene side of French waterways under the stars.
Not only do these seasons offer an escape from the summer rush, but they also present great value. With our off-season pricing, you still enjoy the same luxurious accommodations, gourmet dining, and personalized tours, all set against the intimate backdrop of France’s changing seasons.
A voyage with C’est La Vie during spring or autumn offers a unique opportunity to experience France’s beauty in a more relaxed, intimate, and cost-effective way. Visit our 2024 calendar to check availability and book now and discover the tranquil charm of these seasons on the serene waterways of France.
