The 6-passenger Nymphea is of classic Dutch design. With her shallow draft, this barge is ideal for navigating the incredibly beautiful yet somewhat sandy reaches of the river Cher in the Loire valley. Refitted throughout, her traditional ship interior features a warm decor of rich varnished hardwoods, stained glass and a welcoming country house atmosphere. She has three comfortable cabins providing two twin-bedded staterooms and one twin or double stateroom with en-suite facilities. The Nymphea’s crew of three – a Captain, Chef and Tour Guide – are exceptional hosts and their knowledge of all aspects of this fascinating area will ensure your journey is one to remember.
