David C; September 2019 private charter for 4
5* for the barge, destination, service from Hotels Afloat and the website!
The on board service was personal, professional, super friendly and thoughtful of us as guests in every respect. This is what stands out the most from this great recreational travel experience. It was fun, educational and totally unique. Captain Olivier and our chef, Lynn, could not have been more gracious or kind. Alegria is a beautiful barge and the cabin accommodations are excellent with king beds as a huge bonus. The deck arrangements are comfortable and perfect for experiencing the Canal du Midi in all its glory and dining outside as the weather permits. The lounge is large, fully outfitted with reading materials and games and is thus well suited to comfortable relaxation or fine dining. The bar is fully stocked and the access to the local wines of region is excellent. All of our concerns and requests were handled efficiently and well. Bravo!!

Alegria was just as expected: Spacious, confortable, clean and impeccably well maintained. The captain runs a 'tight ship' and is present all while giving us privacy. good crew.
