Interaction with guests
There is a sailor living aboard in its complete separate quarters at the low and extreme back of the boat (which is 40meters long). Absolutely invisible, he appears morning (10 o clock and evening, 18h) to uncover or cover the pool. Of course, he appears kindly too in demand of passengers to provide information about the boat or anything useless around.

We stayed with my children for 10 days and it was fantastic ! The boat is close to the cite des papes but away from the agitated crowd. And the view is breathtaking. It was like sleeping on a boat that floated in the trees....More
