Food glorious food
An excellent continental breakfast and light lunch are included each day, together with one or two home cooked dinners during the cruise.
Breakfast usually consists of freshly brewed coffee, breakfast teas, fruit juice, cereals, baguettes, croissants, pain au chocolat, ham, cheese, jams, yogurt and on request, maybe even eggs.
A light lunch generally comprises freshly prepared salad, a selection of cheeses, cold meats, crusty local breads and time permitting, a hot dish such as quiche Lorraine, tartiflette, French fries or jacket potatoes.
Bread supplies are dictated by our mooring location and proximity to a baker that's open.
Dinners other than your 'included' meal are taken at your own expense in hostelries ashore and I generally recommend people budget for about 20-30 Euro per person, per meal out. The prices will depend on your choice of restaurant and costs can vary tremendously. My guide price does not include alcohol.
Dining out is all part of the experience and a must if you really want to get a feel for the country, it's cuisine and its culture. Should we find ourselves at a remote mooring with no restaurants, we'll provide dinner aboard.
We ask all guests to advise us of any likes / dislikes or no no's prior to joining us because we hate to cook things that you don't choose to eat. This includes things that you can't eat for medical reasons. Grapefruit for example? Please let us know as much detail as you can.
We will try to accommodate simple food allergies but only if you provide advance warning BEFORE you travel.
