The 6 passenger Nymphea is a classic Dutch design with shallow draft and is ideal for navigating the incredibly beautiful yet somewhat sandy reaches of the river Cher in the Loire valley

Enjoy a relaxing week long cruise aboard Nymphea, a converted Dutch barge travelling through France’s chateau country.

Her traditional interior, reminiscent of a classic yacht, features a warm d├ęcor of rich varnished hardwoods, stained glass and shining brass. The traditionally furnished saloon and dining area have a warm and welcoming country house atmosphere and there is an additional upper saloon area with more comfortable seating to relax in. Nymphea has three compact, but comfortable cabins, two twin staterooms and one twin or double stateroom, all with air conditioning and en-suite facilities.

Included are a variety of excursions, gourmet cuisine prepared by the onboard chef, wines and an open bar. The classic cruise is our most popular barge cruise itinerary.

Refitted throughout, her traditional ship interior features a warm classic decor of rich varnished hardwoods, stained glass and a welcoming country house atmosphere

Nymphea has three comfortable cabins providing two twin bedded state- rooms and one twin or double stateroom with en-suite facilities.
