The Boat

barge_plans_large


The Apres Tout is a converted cargo boat originally built in 1950 and then transformed into a luxury hotel barge in 2004. She is 127 foot long (38.7 metres) by 16.5 foot wide (5.05 metre) and is truly sumptuous.

There are 3 very spacious cabins with Emperor size beds that can divide into twins, each cabin has an extremely efficient air conditioning unit or a separate heating system for cooler months. All cabins have large walk in showers and heated towel rails and are fully stocked with Occitane products.

The salon and dining area are very light and airy with huge picture windows, there is a Satellite television, a Bose DVD player and CD player and ipod docking station. Also there are two wifi systems throughout the boat, so coverage even in the Valley D’ouche is pretty good! There is also for passenger’s use a Mac desk top computer and printer in our bureau.

The deck is probably the best used area – a wonderful outside space with 360° views. There is a bubbling hot tub that can easily take 6 people, 6 deck chairs for sun seekers and a large canopied shaded area for dining – where all meals are served weather permitting.

For those wanting to exercise – there are 6 bicycles that are ideal for tow path riding or exploring further afield.
