Le Phenicien

Le Phenicien is a luxury floating hotel. Passengers join a small number of guests - maximum 18 - for gentle luxury barge cruises along the Rhone, from the Avignon area to Aigues-Mortes in the Camargue. The vessel navigates the river for three to four hours per day, docking at riverside towns and villages for organized excursions and free time.
