Canal cruise Burgundy

Luciole Blog

15th - 21st October 2017

Our final cruise to see in the end of the 2017 season couldn’t have been filled with a more wonderful set of passengers and extraordinarily sunny October weather to match. Charter leaders Stephen and Barton did a fantastic job of leading friends and family to fulfill hopes of a fantasy trip that had been dreamt up many moons ago. We are happy to report this included Stephen taking an autumnal (cool) river dip and painting the picturesque Burgundy landscapes as we cruised along our route for the last time this year from Clamecy to Auxerre. Guest Cynthia impressed the crew with her expert steering skills as we cruised into Accolay with the sun swinging low on the canal behind us, and with it bringing a time to reminisce on another season coming to a close.

All the fantastic guests, laughs and challenges we have faced along the way make for many comical, warm memories. The ‘Golden Book’ our reminder of those times and faces we don’t want to and won’t ever forget. Thank you to everyone who has walked the ‘plank’ and joined us through our doors this year for a weeks cruise, a drink, a bite to eat, a cup of tea or even just a chat. You have made the Luciole what it is! Lights out on one more season, we hope to see some of you back for more in 2018, many warm wishes until then, and keep an eye on our blog to see Winter updates from our refit (which will no doubt begin far sooner than anyone expects!)
