HOTEL BARGES / LUCIOLE

Options

Over the years, groups of friends and family parties have frequently chartered the ' Luciole ' for their own exclusive use. Adaptability is the key to the success of these cruises and our flexible crew members are well accustomed to making these changes.

For children with family charter parties, alternative meal times and excursions can be arranged while for special interest groups individual cruise itineraries can be designed. Business gatherings can also be accommodated and our cruising timetable adjusted to suit a specialized schedule.
