Hazel Young, the owner of two luxury French canal barges, is offering a substantial discount on a private Burgundy Canal charter for four people on Fandango. Normally she gets $19,980 for an all-inclusive six-night charter; she’s now asking $15,000 for the same package throughout the 2009 season. The price includes all meals, either on shore or on board. (Hazel shops en route and serves exquisite regional cuisine with fine Burgundy wines. I know the meals are amazing because a foodie friend of mine has barged with her.) Fandango has an open bar, an English-speaking crew and lots more, which you can see on the website. Not interested in a charter? Hazel is offering a discount on single cabins as well: $8000 (two people, one week) vs. the normal price of $10,000.
