Video: Experience the Magic of Holland in Spring: Aboard Hotel Barge Panache

Cruise the delightful waterways of Holland’s western provinces in the Spring past windmills sitting majestically above the polders. Springtime is, of course, the time of year when visitors can see the tulips at their very best, but lovers of culture also come from far and wide to tour the traditional Dutch cities and their many museums. Delft, Leiden and Haarlem will charm you, just as they did the great Dutch artists.

Visitors to Holland are entranced by the vivid colours of the bulb fields and the magnificence of the formal displays such as at the world-renowned Keukenhof Gardens which we visit. Other attractions, including the Royal Delft pottery and Zaanse Schans with its conservation area, are equally memorable.

Panache is a hotel barge that has been fitted out in traditional yacht style with brass and mahogany fittings in the spacious public areas and very comfortable cabin accommodation. In the saloon the panoramic windows let in plenty of natural light, and the tempting cocktail bar and comfortable leather sofas are enhanced by polished hardwood flooring and separate dining area.

The cabin accommodation comprises six generously sized junior suites, all with en suite bathrooms that have twin hand-basins and oversized showers. Outside, the spacious sun deck is the perfect place to unwind and admire the passing scenery from one of the comfortable chairs, whilst the heated spa pool and chilled glass of champagne completes the picture.
