Roi Soleil

'Roi Soleil' has more to do with luxury yachting than barging. Her lines and mahogany and brass trim are inspired by the classic motor yachts of the 1920's while her interior brings you the best of contemporary design and comfort.



The stylish Salon/Dining Room with its fireplace, bar and panoramic views through no less than 20 windows, offer guests a level of comfort equivalent to that of luxury motor yachts. Drenched in natural light and bright colors, its interior is warm and inviting, a charming place to pass time on board.

In the Salon, guests are welcome to browse the DVD library and watch their selections on the TV. They may also enjoy a drink next to the fireplace. The Salon/Dining Room furniture includes:

  • Banquette couch
  • Coffee table
  • Well-stocked bar
  • Dining table with seating for six (6)
  • Fireplace


The Sun Deck is a spacious open-air gathering area with plenty boasting a heated sunken Jacuzzi. Located at the aft of the barge, the deck has wrap-around seating under a retractable canopy and a teak table for 12 with roll-down sides for protection from the elements.

There is a separate Sun Deck area at the forefront of the barge which is perfect for sunbathing or greeting each new landscape.


Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the onboard bicycles as often as they like.  Most People choose to disembark the barge at a lock to visit local villages, then return to the canal and meet the barge further along (the barge travels slowly; therefore, this is not a problem).

An air-conditioned VW minibus and resident tour guide are also available to accompany guests throughout the cruise.
