Our barge - L'Etoile

We took great pride in preserving and respecting the graceful, traditional lines of L'Etoile.

L'Etoile has been built in 1889. This classic Dutch passenger barge has been converted to today's standards of comfort. Her cozy atmosphere will make you feel immediately at home.

Her beauty is in the details.
