My Dutch barge, Waterman, is 90 years old, converted to a modern floating home. She has all mod cons and sleeps up to six people in three double bunks in separate cabins. Whilst we keep her in good condition she is a floating antique. If you are looking for something glitzy and modern we suggest you look elsewhere. If you are looking for an eclectic adventure with character, romance and charm then this is for you. You need to have adventure in your soul for the Waterman experience.

Très bon accueil et un hôte très disponible Logement propre en bon état Wifi du voisin... TV uniquement en anglais...

Response from Nigel:
The wifi connection I offer "from my neighbour" is a standard SFR hotspot for which I provide a user name and password. Jean Louis was offered the use of my wifi at my house 100m away which is a conventionaI fixed line setup. I have updated my details to ensure guests know the tv has only English channels.

Hôte très agréable et accueillant. La vie est paisible a bord du bateau de Nigel sur le canal de la Loire.

Gladwys, thanks for your kind review. I will address your private comments. There are about 12 photos of the barge already on airbnb many of which are interior shots.
