French Hotel Barge ANJODI
Canal du Midi, France
Between Marseillan and Le Somail
AMENITIES, ACCOMMODATIONS, LAYOUT
The 8-passenger Anjodi is of classic Dutch design,
specifically rebuilt to navigate the 300-year old Canal du Midi. She
has been completely refurbished in the tasteful tradition of African
hardwoods, hand-crafted panelling and shining brass, creating a
comfortable and charming ambience.
SIZES OF THE CABINS
4 staterooms, all with choice of 2 single beds or a double bed. If the cabin is configured as a double bed, one side of the bed will be against the wall. This applies to all cabins except Basilic where the cabin is slightly smaller and the bed(s) are accessed from the foot end of the bed and not from the side. All cabins are of similar size and are equally comfortable. Ceiling height is approximately 6'6" (2 meters) in all cabins.
Note: The measurements above
Each cabin has a stylish en-suite bathroom with shower, wash
basin, and WC. Please note there is a step measuring 10½" (27cm) to access the
shower cubicle. Each is supplied with washing gel,
shampoo, towels, bathrobes, and hair dryers.
AMENITIES: Each guest cabin has a fitted closet with hanging space, a small bedside table, hair dryer, and 220-volt electricity for French two-pin plugs. There are safes in Cabins Romarin, Thym and Basilic. If you are in the Lavande cabin and need a safe, please speak with the Captain as there is another safe onboard for passenger use. Each cabin has individually controlled reversible air conditioning.
ELECTRICITY: Anjodi is wired for 220 and 240 volts but not 110 volts. It is suggested that you bring an adapter for your particular appliance, which corresponds to the standard French 2-pin plug. If you wish to use an electrical appliance on board, please ask one of the crew when you arrive on board to ensure that it is suitable to the barge's electrical system. We cannot be held responsible for unforeseen voltage fluctuations which sometimes occur when swapping from one voltage system to another.
