Hôtel Barge - Nymphea
The Dutch steel shallow-draft Hotel Barge, Nymphea, is the ideal design for sailing the sometimes sandy depths of the River Cher in the Loire Vallery. Taking just six passengers in three cabins, your stay aboard the Nymphea will feel wonderfully personal and very comfortable.
The interior is traditionally warm and classic, with rich varnished woods and stained glass. Each cabin has an en suite bathroom and is air-conditioned. There is an upper sun deck for relaxing and watching the world go by, and if you are feeling a little more energetic, there are six bicycles for guests to use along the towpath.
The crew of Captain/tour leader and Master Chef are very knowledgeable of the region's wine and cuisine.
