The 6 Passenger Meanderer, originally a 1948 Belgian “Spritz” commercial barge, was converted to a luxury hotel barge in 1992. She now offers an exceptionally high degree of space and comfort. Meanderer is the perfect vessel for exploring the Upper Loire in style. It is total relaxation and pampering through this ever-changing region.

Meanderer Hotel Barge

Like the fine wines and produce of France, this historic countryside is best savored slowly, and there is simply no better way to enjoy France than to glide aboard the luxury barge Meanderer.

Originally a 1948 Belgian "Spitz" commercial barge, Meanderer was converted to a luxury hotel barge in 1992. Since her conversion she offers one of the most luxurious six passenger barge specification available in Europe.

A Meanderer voyage lets you have the French dream vacation on your terms.

With three en-suite cabins each measuring in excess of 125 square feet, large lounge and dining areas, a spacious, teak covered sun-deck and an outdoor heated spa-pool, she is the perfect vessel for exploring the Upper Loire in style.

The flexible twin or queen bed arrangements and newly decorated, air-conditioned cabins and salon perfectly complement the spacious outdoor space.

Gourmet dining on board is another part of the wonderful, relaxing week that Meanderer offers.

Dining al fresco under the canopy or inside in the elegant salon are both designed to be exceptional experiences. Menus are created to represent the dining for which France is renowned. All meals on board Meanderer are prepared only with the finest ingredients and presentation is exquisite.
