French Hotel Barge NYMPHEA
Cruising the Cher River in the Loire Valley, France
Between Moulin de Nitray and Montrichard
Nymphea, a 6-passenger French hotel barge, is a classic Dutch design with little draft that makes her ideal for navigating the incredibly beautiful yet somewhat sandy and shallow reaches of the river Cher in the Loire valley. 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, two twin staterooms and one twin or double stateroom, all with air conditioning and en-suite facilities. Six bikes are always available for you to enjoy rides along towpaths and trails. Her crew of Captain and Chef/Housekeeper are most knowledgeable about the history in this beautiful area and are excellent hosts for your luxury cruise.
Discover the Loire Valley, France:
We are delighted to offer the only hotel barge navigating the heart of the Loire Valley. The Valley of the Kings is as rich in history and legend as it is in beauty, and over the centuries little has changed. The River Loire and its main tributary the River Cher have transported passengers and cargo for more than 2000 years.
There is much to discover in the Loire Valley, from the fabulous châteaux to the centuries-old villages dotted along the river. Wind your way through the narrow streets perhaps discovering hidden shops with hand-painted pottery or stumble across an open market. Meet a winemaker or a cheese maker and learn why his goat cheese is the most famous in France.
The proximity of such a wealth of gorgeous Renaissance architecture makes a cruise along this waterway a unique travel experience.
