French Hotel Barge ANJODI
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. They are all similar sizes and are equally comfortable.
Note: The measurements above
As singles they are all 2ft6" wide x 6ft long (80cm x 180cm)
As a double bed they are 5ft wide x 6ft long (1.5m x 1.8m), except Basilic which is 6ft7" wide (204cm) x 6ft (180cm) long
Bedding Note: There is a choice of twin beds or a double on Anjodi but TWIN BEDS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you select a double bed you must be aware that the person sleeping nearest the wall will have to climb across their partner to exit the bed (apart from the Basilic where you enter the bed from the end). Twin beds will be allocated if no preference is given. Bedding configurations cannot be changed once clients are onboard.
All cabin bathrooms are fully tiled and have a shower cubicle, W.C. and
wash basin. Each is supplied with towels, washing gel, hand soap,
shampoo, slippers and dressing gowns. Shower doorways are60cm (2 ft)
AMENITIES: Each guest cabin has closet space, hair dryer and 220-volt electricity for French two-pin plugs. There are safes in Cabins Romarin, Thym and Basilic. There is no safe in the Lavande but there is another safe onboard for passenger use if you need to store valuables and you are in this cabin. Please speak to the Captain on arrival.
ELECTRICITY: 220 volt electricity (French two-pin plugs). The barge 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. 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.
SALOON/DINING ROOM DIMENSIONS & DESCRIPTION
SUNDECK: 12' x 22' (3.6m x 6.7m)
CYCLING & WALKING
Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the on board bicycles as often as they like. Most people choose to disembark the barge at a lock and then visit local villages and then return to the canal and meet the barge a little further along. The barge travels very slowly and therefore “catch up” will not be a problem.
HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES
The region Anjodi cruises in is not suitable for hot air ballooning.
EXCURSIONS BY MINIBUS
9-seater (including driver) long wheelbase, air conditioned minibus.
FOR THOSE NOT WISHING TO ATTEND EXCURSIONS
You are welcome to stay behind on the barge if you would like. You can use the bikes, go for a walk or just sit on the shaded sundeck or in the spa pool with a glass or wine.
Wine Appreciation, Golf and Family cruise itineraries are available for charter groups, please the ITINERARIES page for more details. Special interest cruises often have a supplement and further information can be found on Anjodi's RATES page.
COMPUTER & TELEPHONE FACILITIES
Wi-Fi is available on board for passengers to connect to the internet if they bring their own appliances. This is subject to availability in more remote locations. There are no passenger telephones aboard Anjodi.
PASSENGERS WITH MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS
Anjodi has a boarding ramp with two rope handrails from the bank and then 3 steps to the deck. There are then 8 steps from the deck to the saloon and 3 steps to the cabins. There are adequate handrails inside to assist. The Anjodi is not suitably equipped to receive wheelchair users, for safety reasons all guests must be able to manage the 15 steps (including three to the gangplank) and the 30cm lip between cabin and bathroom and bathroom to shower area. Wheelchairs can only be to help get round visits. Excursions do include cobbled streets and rough ground.
The crew will assist in every way they can. Wheelchairs can be hired locally from a pharmacy and the cost is about €100 for 1 week’s hire. If you would like to hire a wheelchair so that it is available on your arrival, please notify us at the time of booking. The hire charge should be paid directly to the barge captain on arrival. If you have any mobility problems it is highly recommend that you book 2 single beds as access is easier.
Our barges have a strict non-smoking policy. Smokers are asked not to smoke inside the barge as this may give offence to your shipmates. Smoking is categorically not permitted in the cabins for safety reasons. If you would like to smoke you are requested to smoke outside on deck or on the tow path, away from fellow passengers.
