The lady that owns the boat was very friendly and willing to speak English. She also kindly served us tea and sorbet despite how busy it was. I highly recommend.

In orchid pants and a purple scarf, the owner will passionately share with patrons the story of the return of the violet to Toulouse. There are many products from violet jelly , candy, tea as well as tea towels and violet candles.
