Traditional in style and casual in feeling, the Nymphea is a perfect choice for those who enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and memorable sightseeing.

Built-in sofas line the salon for comfortable socializing, while freshly made canapes and glasses of wine are savored on the deck. Cozy cabins offer adequate space. The service oriented crew is enthusiastic to introduce guests to the delights of this exquisite region, and more active guests can explore the trails along the river by foot or by bicycle.

Of course, the highlight of Nymphea’s sightseeing is the Loire Valley’s many majestic and iconic chateaux. Famed, enchanting, and magnificent: the roll call includes Chenonceau, Amboise, Villandry, Valency, and Foulques Nerra. Visits to working wineries, rambling gardens, and lively markets further augment the vivid cultural explorations. Pre-configured bed types and varying cabins sizes.
