Savoir Faire

Hotel Barge Savoir Faire

Savoir Faire was built in 1932 before being converted into a hotel barge. She was given a substantial refurbishment a few years ago and passengers will appreciate the charming interior finished in mahogany, teak and brass and complemented by tasteful antiques and paintings.
Savoir Faire features six staterooms all of which are air-conditioned and have en suite facilities. Each can be configured with twin beds or with one queen bed. Two spacious sun decks offer magnificent views of the countryside and bikes are provided for those who wish to explore further.
You will be attentively catered for by six English-speaking crew including the captain, deck hand, master chef, tour guide and two hosts/hostesses.
