Hôtel Barge - Rosa - Castets-en-Dorthe

Rosa - Castests-en-Dorthe is an old Dutch “Clipper” barge that was completely refitted in 2010 to a high specification. The air-conditioned interior includes a dining room, saloon, bar and four staterooms. Two of the staterooms have double beds and two have twin beds, all of which have full en-suite facilities. Outside there is a spacious sun deck with comfortable furniture. Along with Anjodi, Rosa featured in the hugely successful television series, Rick Stein’s French Odyssey.

The crew consist of a knowledgeable captain, tour guide, housekeeper and a master chef whose culinary master pieces will be a regular delight throughout your cruise. Eight bikes are available for use and your tour guide will be happy to advise you on the best routes to cycle should you wish to explore.



The master chef onboard is there to delight you with wonderful dishes concocted from local produce. Breakfast is a sumptuous spread of breads, croissants and pastries, fruit, yoghurt, fruit juices and, of course, copious amounts of delicious coffee.
