Your Choice, Our Responsibility

Since founding Elegant Waterways twenty-two years ago, it has been the vision of the owners Earl & Candy Robertson and partner Spencer Hayes to build exquisite barges that feel like a luxurious home away from home. Our goal has always been to create intimate barge charters with elegant flare and a family atmosphere.


Now, more than ever, travel is the new measure of luxury. What Elegant Waterways has stood for since the very beginning comes to the forefront, demonstrating the advantages of intimate explorer barges in bringing families and friends together in their travels to explore one of the most beautiful regions in France, Burgundy.


With uniquely crafted experiences and an impressive nearly 1:1 guest to crew ratio, our barges offer exceptional personalized service, both onboard and on our tailor-made excursions.
