Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2017

The Madeleine is a barge that runs between Lagarde and Strasbourg (or return) in the Alsace region of France. Whilst the barge can accommodate 22 passengers, we were lucky that there were only 10 of us.

We did have a problem at the beginning because the company didn't provide very good directions for our collection at Strasbourg station - we were all in different places! A map with clear instructions would help.

The food was exquisite as they served us food local to the region. Wine was included with lunch and dinner. Lunch also included beautiful cheeses which they described prior to the meal.

Cabin Review

Cabin 2

Cabins are small with twin beds & private bathroom facilities. There's a good amount of storage, considering the size.

Bathroom is obviously small, but serviceable.

It is clean and modern.
