The Barge

Built in 1930 in Holland, La Vie en Rose (formerly known as the Who Knows) was used for ferrying  grain, stone, wood and other dry cargo in Europe. The barge was laid up in the centre of Paris for 17 years, where she was owned and lived by the famous American Actor « Sterling Hayden ».

La Vie en Rose has three well appointed en-suite air conditioned cabins and two fabulous outside decks to take full advantage of the magnificent French scenery that slowly drifts by.
