Overview

Savannah is a luxury hotel barge able to accommodate up to 7 passengers in luxuriously fitted cabins with both inside salon and dining rooms and a large deck to enjoy throughout the cruising season.

Initially built in 1938 as a cargo tanker specifically to the dimensions of the Royal Canal du Midi (30m x 5m) and navigating between Bordeaux and Sète, this barge was transformed into a luxurious showroom for the prestigious cosmetic group l’Occitane de Provence in the 80. The mahogany woodwork and ceramic tiles date from this period and have naturally remained as the signature of this unique canal hotel barge. Savannah was completely refurbished and decorated with luxurious contemporary furniture in 2014.
