Glorious chateaux, delicious wines, mesmerising scenery, a luxurious ship and the company of one of Britain’s best-loved chefs are all the ingredients you need for the perfect river cruise.
The Bordeaux region is where it all began for James Martin as a trainee in the Michelin-starred Hostellerie de Plaisance, Saint-Emilion. He’s been coming back to this beautiful part of France ever since and now you can join him and TV wine expert Susy Atkins in the breathtaking region.
On Good Housekeeping's exclusive eight-day trip, you'll try first-growth clarets, including tastings with wine expert Susy Atkins. You will also join James at an oyster tasting, hear about his life in a talk, learn how to cook French classics and enjoy a dinner designed by James himself.
You’ll take in farmers’ markets, go on guided tours and do yoga at Blaye’s historic fortress.
The SS Bon Voyage will be your floating home for seven nights and is one of the newest and most luxurious ships operating in France. It has been uniquely designed to immerse guests in French culture, art and wine.
