Many captains of the ships going up and down the Seine retire to Conflans. They buy old barges
and fix them up as houseboats, then dock them along the Conflans waterfront.
There might be a hundred of them.
There is a public park on the hillside above Conflans, on the grounds of a former estate,
the Serre du Chateaux du Prieuré.
When I visited the chateau, this sweet couple was celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary!!!
No typo. 70 years. They were married in 1945.
