Belmond Hirondelle Barge

Decorated in soft country shades, The Hirondelle’s relaxed atmosphere is perfectly in tune with the gentle scenery outside. Large picture windows and skylights flood the airy lounge with natural sunlight, making it the ideal spot to relax and watch rural France pass by.

Spend leisurely hours on the sun deck and sip Champagne as day fades into night. Enjoy a gourmet supper in the dining room, and then return outside to gaze at stars sparkling in the navy sky above.

Your day draws to a close in one of four spacious cabins, each with an en suite shower. This spacious barge can comfortably welcome eight people on board: it is the perfect place to reconnect with family and friends in true Orient-Express style.
