Soak up some seriously slow cruising, far from the madding crowd, aboard a classic 1922 luxemotor barge and my comfortable summer home.
Join her voyage of discovery through the river and canal navigations of France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and enjoy helping move a beautiful, historic barge through a small part of the extensive waterways of Europe.
Informal, fun, hands on barge holidays is what it's all about and although its preferable to muck in to get the best from the experience, there will be loads of time to relax as well.
Joining the barge makes you an integral part of the team. You'll need to be reasonably agile and willing to participate in most aspects of shipboard life.
This might include shopping for food at local markets, cycling off to find fresh baguettes and croissants for breakfast, assisting in the galley, tidying up, helping work the barge through locks, navigation, steering, and most importantly, telling the captain where to go....
You'll need to participate, make your own bed, have an open mind, great sense of humour and accept that things can and will go pear shaped sometimes. If you arrive aboard the barge with a positive mindset, you will quite simply have the time of your life.
Once aboard, I hope to indulge you in my passion for global travel, Belgian beer, local wine, tasty regional cuisine and soaking up the ever changing landscapes that glide ever so gently past the barge.
Nilaya offers most of the comforts of a home away from your home. Her two cosy cabins can be arranged as either twin or double and both have private en-suite shower rooms. She has a spacious saloon with big panoramic windows offering great views, day or night plus a well equipped galley.
The barge accommodates up to four guests, so once you've booked, it'll be a bit like having your own private barge.
Payments from guests provide for day to day running and most importantly, the large maintenance fund keeping my 88 year old, 82 ton barge afloat!
She's my wonderful cruising home for twenty five weeks each year and I welcome you to her unreservedly. Who knows? Barging in France might turn out to be one of your most Wonderful vacations?
They say that you only regret the things you failed to do in life? Just imagine that fun you've yet to have.
