European Waterways is offering a free weekend at the four-star Hotel Westminster in central Paris for guests who charter the luxury hotel barge Renaissance during 2017.

The two-night hotel stay includes breakfast and can be used either pre- or post-cruise.

Offering a scenic voyage through France’s Upper Loire region on the Canal de Briare, the Renaissance cruise is 'the perfect setting' for a wedding anniversary celebration, or small family reunion, according to managing director Derek Banks. He said: “The intimate, eight-passenger Renaissance is the height of luxury and fine dining as it cruises France’s oldest canal through lush, rolling countryside and storybook villages. Guests can enhance their vacation experience with a stay at the ‘crown jewel’ of Paris hotels, the Hotel Westminster. Its central location will enable them to visit nearby, ‘must see’ attractions that include Place d’Opéra, the Tuileries Gardens, and the designer shops in Place Vendôme.”

Charter prices are from £29,900 and include all gourmet meals, fine wines, open bar, escorted daily excursions and transfers to and from the hotel barge and Paris.

To take advantage of the offer, booking deposits must be made by January 6, 2017.
