Fleurey-sur-Ouche to Escommes
Day 1, Sunday
Meet at the **designated meeting point and transferred to the elegant L’Impressionniste moored in Fleurey-sur-Ouche for your cruise through Burgundy. A Champagne reception welcomes you on board and provides you with a chance to meet the crew. Dinner on board.
Day 2, Monday
This morning, experience your first day’s cruise along this enchanting canal, which also promises a walk or cycle along an ever-present towpath cruising past sleepy villages and pretty lock houses. After lunch we transfer to Golf Blue Green in Quetigny, situated just 5 minutes from the centre of Dijon in the heart of wine producing Burgundy, where you will find a short but technical golf course that runs along the river Mirande. Designed by Chris Pittman, and opened in 1990, this course offers a challenge for all levels of player; so do not be fooled by its length. Dinner on board. (18 Holes, Par 71 625m).
Day 3, Tuesday
After breakfast, transfer to Golf de Beaune Levernois. The course was designed in the middle of the vineyards of Burgundy, within a framework of relaxation and greenery. It is a technical course with 9 lakes and its bunkers of white sand as well as many large trees. This course is reserved for all levels of player. Return to the hotel barge for lunch and leisurely afternoon cruise to La Bussiere. Dinner on board. (18 holes, Par 72, 6473m).
Day 4, Wednesday
An exclusive tour of the magnificent 12th century Abbaye de la Bussiere. The ornamental gardens and lake, wine press, crypt and cellars are interwoven with ancient colonnades, stone staircases and huge stained glass windows. After a Kir Royale aperitif, we enjoy the gastronomic delights of Master Chef Emmanuel Hebrard in the Bistro or Garden Restaurant whilst enjoying a selection of local burgundies. This afternoon, we visit the moat-encircled 13th century Chateau de Commarin. Going back 26 generations, the de Vogue family ownership portrays an insight into the glamorous lives of the French aristocracy as well as showing off the Chateau, stables and landscaped gardens. Late afternoon cruise to Pont d’Ouche. Light dinner on board.
Day 5, Thursday
After breakfast, cruise to Vandenesse, passing grazing white Charolais cattle, rolling hills and picturesque villages crossing the only canal bridge on the Burgundy Canal. In the afternoon we drive to Chateau de Chailly golf course which was designed by Thierry Sprecher and Géry Watine, professional champion of France in 1989. Around its 16th century chateau, the Chailly golf course offers a magnificent course audaciously marrying the classicism of a formal garden and avant-garde golfing technology as regards the golfing construction. Dinner on board. (18 holes, Par 72, 6146m).
Day 6, Friday
Our last day’s leisurely cruise takes us to the canal summit, 1250 feet above sea level, just before the Pouilly tunnel. We then transfer to Club de Pre Lamy, situated among the rolling pastures of the Auxois as they meet the forest of the Morvan. Under the calm but ever watchful eye of the château and the Collegial church of Thil, the course provides a real test for experienced players. At the same time, in a calm unhurried environment, with beautiful sights, beginners will be able to improve their skills on a course well suited to their needs. Captains Farewell Dinner on board.
