August 2018 Exotic French River Cruise

Experience the true language of passion and fall in love on an Amour en Provence River Cruise, a luxurious, all-inclusive journey through the heart of the Rhône Valley in Southern France in late summer 2018.  Escorted by Kevin & Liz with PSC….it’s lifestyle-friendly and clothing optional at the pool. What could be more romantic than a French River Cruise in the nude?

August in Southern France? Mais oui.

Enjoy seven sexy nights and eight delicious days of sailing through the stunning, picturesque townscapes of Lyon, Chalon-Sur-Saone, Macon, and Avignon before we arrive in Arles. The Roman and Romanesque monuments of Arles put this region on the map and the inimitable artist Vincent van Gogh who produced over 300 timeless artworks while living in the area cemented its place in our cultural memory.

From the quaint romantic villages of Provence to grand cities bursting with historical landmarks, our guests will become immersed in la vie française.

Steeped in tradition dating back to Roman times, but with a dynamic cultural and nightlife scene, our itinerary will delight our guests with the paradox of old versus new. All of this culture and passion will be experienced on our included land excursions and aboard our all-inclusive river vessel featuring nearly seventy balcony and suite cabins.

We begin our frisky French voyage in Lyon, where you can explore Europe’s oldest Renaissance Quarter Vieux Lyon (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Our luxurious cruise will then meander through Southern France, taking in the stunning scenery, history, and culture of this truly romantic region dating back to 43 BCE. Castles, cathedrals, Roman amphitheaters all await us.

Live out your gastronomic fantasies in the birthplace of French Provencial cuisine and excite in the exquisite flavours of Beaujolais, Burgundy, and Chateauneuf du Pape wines.

Can you taste the flavors on your tongue yet?

Whether it’s local wine, artisanal cheese, or delicate truffles that get your gourmet mouth watering, you’ll find it all on the Amour en Provence River Cruise.

Indulge in all five senses with our nonpareil entertainment, lifestyle activities, and adults-only theme parties.

Leave everything to us and enjoy an all-inclusive experience on one of the newest and most luxurious river vessels on the Rhône River. Our Amour en Provence River Cruise will be a vacation that all connoisseurs of fine living will cherish!
