Esperance is an Ultra-Deluxe category barge.
“Elegant”, “Exquisite” and “Perfect” are just a few superlatives that come to mind when trying to describe the Esperance! She is truly one of the most beautiful barges we have ever set foot on. You will not want to leave your cabin, but when you do it will be to relax in the superbly appointed salon or on the gorgeous sundeck with its jacuzzi and shade awning for al fresco dining.
Esperance epitomises “boutique” and the superb handmade ceramics and customised furniture personally chosen by owner and Captain Matthias, along with the unwavering attention to his guests’ comfort by he and his wonderful crew make this one of the most exceptional cruise experiences on the Canal du Midi. Cozy up to the chef for his wonderful recipes; he is also happy to share cooking tips and techniques!
Apart from his meticulous attention to detail and superb taste in interiors, Matthias has spent most of his life on the water, and the sharing of this passion and focus on warm, outstanding service will ensure the most discerning travellers will enjoy the perfect cruise in the sunny south, on board one of the most superb barges in France!
