The contemporary and stylish Madeleine hotel barge offers its passengers the best in modern river cruising. Purpose-built, this brand new, intimate boat allows you to discover the hidden gems of a French canal cruise as we sail right into the heart of the charming towns and historical cities on our tour. We receive a first-class service from the dedicated on board crew who are on hand to help wherever possible.
Public Rooms & Facilities
The Madeleine is the perfect place to relax and watch the idyllic countryside float by as we sail along the peaceful waterways of France. Built with comfort in mind, soak up the views from the well-equipped sun deck or enjoy a complimentary drink whilst unwinding in the sun deck jacuzzi. You are also able to enjoy a ride along the towpath of the canal using one of the on board bicycles. After a day of sightseeing you may like to sit back in the cozy on board bar/ lounge and make the most of the all-inclusive drinks list (excludes Champagne, special wines and fine brandies).
Dining on The Madeleine is a memorable experience. With plenty of large windows letting in natural light, the elegant and state of the art salon is the perfect atmosphere in which to dine on a delicious and varied menu of traditional French cuisine. With lunches and dinners accompanied by carefully selected, complimentary wines you will find yourself always looking forward to your next meal. Breakfast is a relaxed self-service buffet with a variety of options available.
There are only twelve cabins on board, all of which are comfortable two-berths and situated on the lower deck. The ship has air-conditioning throughout but there are independent controls in each room. Every cabin has large windows and a private, en suite bathroom with a shower and there is plenty of storage space for your luggage. The modern design includes a flat-screen television, telephone, radio and safe.
