News update from French Hotel Barge EMMA

French Hotel Barge Emma - Barging cruises on the Canal du Midi, France

Liz from the French Hotel Barge Emma wrote to us this week from the cool mountains of Les Cevennes where they are taking a short break.

  • Emma will no longer be offering the 8-night surf & turf package with the Chateau Tower at Ventenac as the owners, Jodi and Peter, have decided to sell it and are looking for a larger property.
  •  For those of you who remember Emma's tour guide Rosie, she has just had her first baby, a little boy called Charlie. Hostess Amanda will be back on Emma for the second half of the season.
  • Barge Emma already has bookings for 2019 barging cruises on the Canal du Midi in the south of  France.
