French barging with the JOLY family

We are a small family business founded in 2000 by Claudette, Michel, Bertrand and Marc. We have found that barge cruising is the best way to combine our love for canal and river barges and our attachment for our region, the south of France. Thanks to our luxury cruises aboard LE PHENICIEN, we are glad to share now this passion with you. From right to left in the picture above you can see:

Bertrand has worked in some of the most luxurious hotels in Paris. He is responsible for the crew who will attend to your every need and ensure your comfort on board.

Claudette had been in the restaurant business for 10 years before we started this venture and used to work as a professional decorator before. She is responsible for everything that looks nice or smells good here!

Michel has done a lot in the past 35 years, provided his ability to design and manufacture was involved. He designed and mostly made the barge "LE PHENICIEN" and is now responsible for maintenance.

Marc has worked mainly in the information technology and marketing fields. He is your privileged contact for commercial issues and also webmaster for this site.

He is not a member of the family but we are glad to introduce Thierry, our French Chef, who has been with us since the beginning of this joyful adventure! he is probably one of the happiest and best Chefs available among the whole barge fleet in France, as a matter of fact this is what happy passengers usually say!

We are all natives from the region we cruise through, this is why what you will find here, you will find nowhere else.
