Liz sent us this short video to show René's most recent addition to their barge Emma that will benefit the comfort of their guests: a motorized awning that can be quickly and easily raised and lowered (to pass under bridges) by pressing a switch next to the wheel. No muss or fuss... It also shows their new deck furnishings.
FRENCH BARGE EMMA
EMMA is fully air conditioned and also has central heating, if needed. There are three guest cabins; one has a queen bed, while the other two can be configured as either queens or twins. Beautiful handmade Irish quilts from Oonagh Morisson add that extra touch of luxury. Each guest cabin has its own private, ensuite bathroom with sink, toilet and a normal sized shower with sliding doors. The interior is bright and spacious with beautiful arched double glazed windows which give you a good view of the outside countryside whilst cruising. The French oak furniture has been hand made by a master craftsman and the whole effect is warm and inviting.
EMMA has a spacious upper deck (385 square feet) with tables, chairs, and loungers. Shade from the sun, too, if you want it. This is a marvelous vantage point to see the wonderful countryside and a great place to enjoy cocktails before dinner. Later on, view the stars and set the world to right. And, of course, EMMA has bicycles and a minivan to chauffeur you to various excursions.Remember that EMMA can tailor your charter to your interests... wine tastings & vineyard visits, cooking, golf, tennis, walking tours, cycling tours, or just time out to relax and enjoy a side of France that most travellers don't experience.
Available for both private charters and cabin cruises.
September is always a popular month for barging trips and Emma currently still has TWO weeks available... one for a private charter and one for a cabin cruise.
