Le Phénicien’s cruises showcase the very best that France can offer: history, culture, nature, wildlife, gastronomy and wine! Her beautifully
serene, light and spacious interior has mature palm plants in huge urns giving the open-plan saloon/dining room/bar area a feeling of classical
elegance. The nine practically identical-sized suites on the lower deck are each furbished with colourful Provence-style fabrics and are
generously proportioned, each with en suite private bathroom in modern, light tones.
The sundeck at the front of the boat is a great place to relax and watch the scenery
glide by and the saloon has huge picture windows that also make viewing the scenery easy should the weather be less kind. This is the perfect
barge for groups of 18 (or less) who wish to explore this fascinating region of France.
Painting, art, history, wine, golf, cookery and nature
are just some of the specialised cruises that are available, in addition to the very popular ‘classic’ cruises which feature a little of everything.
If you have a different cruise theme in mind, please ask us, it’s very likely it can be catered for.
