LOT 1 Le Phénicien combines luxury cruising with perhaps the most varied and fascinating route of all hotel barges; you'll see great towns and cities along the Rhone, and smaller villages of the Petit Rhòne and the Camargue. Le Phénicien's unique route allows it to meander through the Provence and the Languedoc-Roussillon regions, boasting thousands of years of culture, world-renowned wines, gastronomic food, glorious weather, and unspoiled nature. This family-owned barge boasts an incredibly authentic and intimate experience, bringing you to historic castles, exquisite countryside's and vineyards, legendary sights and medieval villages throughout France's Provence region. Your cruise begins in Avignon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for history, life, art, music and activity, all within its fortified walls. After this intriguing guided visit the barge will sail down to Aramon, a quiet and charming little port where you're invited to rest, take a bike ride or enjoy a game of pétanque under the plane trees in the village. Your last day is the perfect time to visit the marvelous natural beauty of the Camargue region, a botanical and zoological nature reserve, where you'll visit a working ranch (a "manade"), where the local authentic cowboys ("gardians a cheval") demonstrate how they tend the herds of bulls on their superb white horses. The Camargue never fails to surprise and delight its guests, and you'll head back for a farewell dinner! TERMS AND CONDITIONS: Travel package is non-refundable and subject to availability.
