Click here to learn more about the Alegria.
The 4-passenger Alegria is positively an ideal choice for two couples looking for an exclusive and enjoyable experience. Owned and operated by Olivier Baudry, a Frenchman with a vision, this barge features many “chic, sleek and unique” design features that you simply won’t see on other barges. One way glass in the cabins assures privacy even when the towpath is just feet away and a small freeform pool—imaginatively illuminated at night—adds flair to the deck space, spiced up with several cranberry-colored market umbrellas. Each cabin has their own mini fridge stocked with your preferences, and the creative ambience onboard displays treasures from around the globe. An impressive lunch served onboard concluded with softly spiced poached pears, served with ginger and lemon ice creams and cinnamon cookies—a favorite dessert during a 3-week trip in France! The translation of Alegria is joy, cheer or happiness, and all three are assured onboard this trendy and inviting barge.
Booked as: Charter only for up to 4 guests.
Meeting Point: Saturday afternoon at any one hotel or rail station in Carcassonne, Narbonne or Beziers/Montpellier (depending on cruise direction).
