France revolves around exquisite food and fine wines - whilst other nations eat to live, France lives to eat! Every cruise on board Saroche is a gourmet experience. Whilst the majority of other passenger barges have a set menu each evening, Saroche offers a choice of dishes each evening on its 5-course menu. The chef will discuss your personal preferences with you and tailor the week's menus to reflect these. We also cater for special dietary needs.   


Saroche offers 3 en suite staterooms for 6 passengers. The vessel has a split level lounge/dining room (25' x 16'), a quiet shady garden lounge featuring a foliage surrounded fish pond (10' x 16') with waterfall and goldfish and a large sun deck and parasol-covered dining deck - for meals 'al fresco'. The lounge/dining area was designed to reflect the colours of Provence, its subtle peach and cream decor highlighted with accents of amber and turquoise. The cool mosaic tiled dining area and white oak floored salon are complemented by wrought iron and hardwood balustrades and a profusion of leafy indoor plants. Eight large opening windows and a hexagonal skylight flood the room with sunshine and fresh air, as rippling reflections from the water dance across the wood timbered ceiling, flashing across brass ceiling fans - all reflecting and absorbing the atmosphere, bright colours and sunshine of the French countryside. The comfortable armchairs, wood burning fire, hardwood fully stocked bar, stereo/CD player, satellite TV with CNN and CNBC, news, video player and library complete the cosy atmosphere - where passengers quickly feel at home.

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATION Saroche's staterooms reflect the high standard to which the vessel was designed. The largest six-passenger barge currently cruising in France, the staterooms are bright, luxurious and spacious - more closely resembling a hotel room than a ship's cabin. All the beds can be converted into either twin beds or queen sized double beds. Rooms have large wardrobes with ample hanging drawer and shelf space and alcoves with make-up/shaving mirrors above tiled washbasins. Bathrooms contain extra large fully tiled shower cubicles with high ceilings, easy access glass doors and adjustable speed shower nozzles. Hot water is abundant, hair dryers are provided in all cabins and large fluffy bath sheets add to the feeling of luxury. All cabins have opening windows, central heating and individually controlled air conditioning systems.
