In keeping with La Nouvelle Etoile’s alternate name, “The Happy Wanderer,” itineraries are planned and timed for peak season in each region so that you always experience the best of the area you are visiting. Excursions to great vineyards, famous fromageries, ancient chateaux and villages in our deluxe land transportation, are complemented by the knowledge and flexibility of our tour guide, whose intent is to help you make the most of each day. Personalized tours are designed to let you do what interests you most. Go for a morning walk, bicycle along the towpath, jog in the countryside or simply luxuriate, sunbathing on deck as the barge slips down the lazy river. Pursue your interest in art at fine local museums or visit architectural marvels dating back to the Renaissance or Roman times. The possibilities, like the memories you return home with, are endless.
