  • A door forward leads past the inside steering station onto a lovely lounging deck in the bow.
  • The boat has a sound system with a radio/CD player with MP3/USB connectivity.
  • Relaxing and dining on gourmet fare around the large L-shaped settee and table is a delight.
  • Three separate lounging chairs across from the table provide extra seating options. The large settee converts to one double bed.

The people at the base were very helpful and all wanted to make sure our vacation went smoothly. We had a battery issue and the base sent men to fix it as soon as we reported issues. This boat had enough room for us and was easy to use and navigate. We cooked our meals and had plenty of space to keep food and drinks cold. Showering worked great as did the top deck lounging.

The Service was excellent from start to finish.. We received a very warm welcome when we checked in at reception plus this Lady's English was brilliant. Such a multi talented lady. She was informative and very cheerful in her delivery of the information. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday on the Calypso. The upper deck was spacious enough to relax and enjoy the views or be the Captain for a while. The table was a little on the large side as it was in the way when not in use.. Having a BBQ on the upper deck was a great asset. If we book another Le Boat holiday then I think we would hire bikes too as touring around from the boat would be easier on wheels rather than on foot . We stopped by at very characteristic villages and really loved our holiday in Brittany.
