Thank you so much for making our time on the Luciole so special. Your caring ways with the children and never-ending attention to our needs and dietary restrictions were unparalleled and won’t be forgotten! The places we visited were beautiful and the adventure activities were so much fun. Thank you for the whole experience and all the lasting memories.

I love this barge! This week has been the best week of my life. To start off my birthday was the most memorable. Getting kicked off a horse to lava cave with candles. This trip has been so fun! Thanks!

Kudos to barge Luciole. Thank you for all of your efforts to make our celebration of my Mom’s 80th Birthday a truly memorable event for our whole family – from the youngest at 8 years old to our patriarch at 82.

Water holidays are my favourites, the high standard of Luciole facilities & beauty of the Nivernais always never fail.

I know that I speak for every person in our family when I say that the week was a magical one. It is clear to us all that your professionalism, dedication to service, concern for your guests, and aesthetic sensibilities are mirrored in your fabulous crew. We felt most fortunate to have found you !

Our photos are happy reminders of our incredible week aboard the Luciole. We are all going through "withdrawal" and finding it a bit of a challenge to get back to our every day lives...

Words cannot describe what an amazing experience we have had on this wonderful barge from beautiful scenery and lovely tours to making new friends and enjoying first class food and wine throughout our stay. Will (and have already) recommended this trip.

It's a week of refreshment and pampering that is good for the soul. You can't explain it in words. You have to experience it. Thank you!

Susan and I had never done a cruise vacation before. We've always been wary of larger cruise trips, but the intimacy of the Luciole was just perfect for us to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests and the crew.
