Savoir Faire

The Savoir Faire has truly set the standard of excellence in European canal barging.  The sleek vessel welcomes its guests with warm interiors, elegant furnishings, spacious public areas and comfortable staterooms.

The Savoir Faire represents innovations in design:  the boat has been built on the largest hull able to cruise the whole range of European canals, from the small intimate canals of France to the great rivers of Germany.  By limiting the vessel to only 12 passengers, guests have much more space on board in both their staterooms as well as on the main deck's accommodations.

Savoir Faire's main deck boasts 2 separate lounges finished in mahogany, teak and brass.  There is an intimate bar lounge opening onto the aft deck of the vessel. For evening entertainment there is an upright piano, game table, stereo, CD player and library.  Those that feel like dancing will find the dining room easily converts into a hardwood dance floor.

Savoir Faire's staterooms are spacious, with either twin beds or a king bed.  All are equipped with private baths and ample closet space,  The boat's three full separate decks are exceptional to barging offering so much more space, privacy and views that typically found on other barges. An exceptional feature of the Savoir Faire is the 3rd level panoramic deck from which you can view the surrounding countryside. This deck is fully furnished with comfortable deck chairs and dining tables.
