We have really enjoyed visiting the bateau rouge in Angouleme in recent years. Unfortunately it has a new proprietor who we found, today to be surly and rude, with no idea how to encourage customers to come back. His wife(or was it his mother?) was...More

Thank you for your opinion and the pleasure to see you again!

Thank you and my apologize for my english accent ! See you soon!

Regarding the boat hire, on their website...More
