A boating holiday on the historic Canal du Midi will be calm sailing through southern France´s sun-soaked vineyards between Toulouse in the west to Agde close to the Mediterranean beaches to the east. Follow the meandering channel under the patchy shadows of the plane trees, through quaint little country towns as Trèbes and Homps, past green vineyards and yellow sunflower fields. Sail under beautiful oval arched stone bridges and on exiting elevated aqueducts.
Berth near the medieval citadel of Carcassonne with the famous intact old town. Study the ancient bookstores in the antiquarian town of Le Somail or taste the legendary stew Cassoulet in Castelnaudary - the town with the beautiful docks. Sail on the Canal de la Robine to romanesque Narbonne which boats an impressive cathedral and an interesting roman museum.
Adorable restaurants tempt you with typical local dishes and lovely Languedoc wines purchased in the local caves du vin (small wine stores), so why not moor along the channel for an extended lunch stop. Buy delicious food in a market or take a step back in time with some sightseeing. You could also just relax and enjoy the lovely surroundings, while the sun casts warm rays on the deck. Pour a glass of wine and savour wonderful southern France.
Sail from one of our 9 bases on Midi and possibly, on to the Camargue-area along the Mediterranean. You can sail round-trip or one-way.
