    Superb location

    The boat was comfortable and perfectly located. 5 min walk to the station and 15 min walk into the old city. Silent at night and very comfortable beds. We would love to come again. Thank you Yves.

    Stay for New Year's Eve aboard the barge Show original

    The barge is well located, close to the city center, old Lyon and public transport. The cabin "the square" is well heated and clean. The comfort is adequate.
