About the barge "Mam Goz"

Photo of Mam Goz

Enjoy a gentle cruise aboard the Mam Goz, providing comfort and intimacy for 2 to 6 guests.

This luxe motor barge was initially built in 1923.  After many years at work along the waterways of Europe, she became a B&B barge in 2005 in the south of France before taking a journey to Belgium in 2016 for a complete refit. 
The resulting barge justly deserved the name Mam Goz, meaning "Grandmother" in the Breton language: She is exceptionally welcoming and designed to make you feel instantly at home.

In 2021 she will be the only 6-passenger barge operating exclusively in the delightful Provence & Camargue regions.
With an experienced English-speaking crew of Captain, Chef, Hostess and a tour guide,  guests can sit back and relax. 

As you board Mam Goz, you'll be delighted to find a superb outdoor lounge complete with a table for aperitif time,  and a further sun terrace providing an ideal spot to admire the views.
There is plenty of space and a 2-person hydromassage hot tub with chromotherapy so that you can enjoy the bubbles with a glass of wine!

On the lower deck, easily accessible via the stairs, there is a  light and airy saloon with comfortable soft-furnishings and a spacious dining area which can be set as one large table or three smaller ones. If you like peace in the mornings, a small table may suit you, while dinners are usually more convivial affairs!
With the galley just adjacent, guests can see the chef at work and see how local fresh ingredients are transformed into delicious mouthwatering dishes.

After a day relaxing and discovering the region with our tour guide aboard the Space Tourer Van, it's time for a peaceful night's sleep.

Mam Goz has three, tastefully decorated double cabins (107 sq feet) each with modern, private shower and toilet.
The portholes offer light and excellent views from the elevated double beds while the air-conditioning and heating guarantee that you'll be comfortable whenever you cruise.
A desk and comfortable armchair are provided, along with a wardrobe complete with a safe.
