The finest regional dishes are prepared by an onboard master chef and complemented by a wide array of fine regional wines. The experienced and knowledgeable crew are always there to attend to your slightest need.

Imagine the relaxation and enjoyment as your floating hotel carries you from one peaceful mooring to the next. Explore fascinating villages, see the historic sights, cruise the delightful countryside without the need to pack and unpack every day.
