Review of Rosa barge

The Rosa barge is a Tjalk-clipper style river ship. The vessel was built in 1907 in Holland (Dedemsvaart) under the name "Renaissance". In 1990, the European Waterways river travel company converted it into a luxury hotel barge for cruises on Canal des Deux Mers between Bordeaux and Toulouse (Gascony region, southwestern France. This barge ship was completely refitted during 2010 for cruises on Canal de Garonne.

The barge has an air conditioned interior, including a dining room, bar, saloon (lounge) and all 4 staterooms. Two of the cabins have double and two have twin beds. All accommodations provide full en-suite facilities. There is a spacious sun deck (outdoor top-deck area) with comfortable furniture. The crew of 4 includes a knowledgeable Captain, housekeeper, tour guide and master chef whose culinary masterpieces are a regular delight throughout the sailing. Eight bicycles are offerd complimentary for passengers to use ashore. The tour guide is an expert in the local area and always happy to provide tips and advise on the best itinerary routes for cycling.

Rosa, along with the Anjodi barge, was featured in the ten-part BBC Series about the 6-week journey of Chef Rick Stein from Bordeaux to Marseille along Canal du Midi and Canal de Garonne.
