Wonderful French barge cruises uncover a hidden side of France!
Nilaya offers informal affordable 6 night barge cruises on some of France’s most beautiful waterways. They're relaxing, sociable, flexible and fun!
Just four lucky guests get to share two comfortable ensuite cabins while uncovering a hidden side of France that few get to see.
Stunning scenery, flexible dining and being able to tell the captain ‘where to go’ are just a few of the ingredients ensuring your trip of a lifetime.
Whether it's the champagne reception, substantial continental breakfasts, extensive light lunches or five course home cooked dinner, you're sure to leave Nilaya with the most wonderful memories.
Flexible dining allows eating ashore where the mood takes you, have your host provide additional meals or self catering as you prefer.
Nilaya cruises many spectacular regions every summer and during 2012, Alsace-Lorraine, Ardennes, Paris, Champagne, Vosges and Burgundy are all part of the plan. Guests create our five month voyage of discovery by suggesting where and when they'd like to cruise. I then try and accommodate those desires, culminating in our final overall route.
Nilaya's variable rates are some of the most reasonable to be found on the French waterways, offering an unbeatable quality of food, accommodation and experience for the price. Testimonials from previous guests back this up.
Singles, friends, couples or groups, all are welcome to join in the adventure. Nilaya's my wonderful cruising home and I welcome you to her unreservedly. Just think of the friends you've yet to meet.
With kindest regards
Skipper and Owner
"Kevin - Thank you for inviting us to your home and for introducing us to your world. It has been a delight to be welcomed, informed, instructed and amused. In short, to be surprised by joy at every turn of the river and the conversation. So many unexpected pleasures in this short week on the Meuse. You and the barge will be a part of our favourite memories. Thank you so very much for your generous hospitality"

"Kevin. We have sometimes sat beside canals saying "we wonder what it would be like to cruise on a barge." Well, now we have and we wouldn't have missed it for anything. The really great thing about the barge is that it is not just a means of transport, but your home and major life project. You have done a fantastic job and through your enthusiasm for river life, have enabled us to experience a little of the relaxing and beautiful Meuse. Thanks for being such excellent and tolerant hosts for the week."
