4. The perfect barge cruise route


With so much to see in France it’s hard to choose which to indulge in during a cruise.

5. A Parisian Bonus


Visiting Paris is on many a travellers bucket list. Because the C’est La Vie is based near the capital city, you can conveniently fly into and out of Paris-Charles De Gaulle airport. Many of our clients cap off a cruise with us by spending an extra few days in Paris. Howard Stein did just that, you can read his travel blog here. During our time here we have also compiled a list of a few hidden gems in Paris.
