Our new barge - Lafayette 22 passengers

We are pleased to introduce you to the latest barge joining our fleet!

Lafayette has been built in 1958. This classic Dutch passenger barge has been converted to today's standards of comfort in 1985 and has been re-furbished again two years ago. Like L'Estello, she is also a two-level barge. Plenty of light, airy, and a capacity for 22 guests

Dimensions: 39,05 meters by 5.05 meters

Lafayette can accommodate a maximum 22 guests in 12 cabins.

For your enjoyment, we have bicycles, fishing rods, an Ipod docking station and a home entertainment system.

E-mail facilities are available. Guided tours are given in an air-conditioned Mercedes van.

Also this barge is owner-operated. The crew is multi-lingual. They speak fluent English, but if you wish, will speak French with you.
