Day
Step aboard and enjoy a welcoming champagne reception, meeting your crew and guide for the trip. In the evening, enjoy your first fabulous dining experience on the barge. Your chef will have prepared a feast showcasing the region's tastiest seasonal ingredients
Spend your first morning relaxing as you cruise along the beautiful Canal du Midi, one of the most stunning waterways in France. After lunch on board, alight with your guide for a visit to Fontfroide Abbey, a Cistercian monastery founded in the 11th century. Now privately owned, the abbey has been lovingly restored with a well-kept garden and peaceful cloister. On the way back to the barge, stop to enjoy a wine tasting at a local domaine.
This morning’s cruise brings you to Le Somail, one of the prettiest moorings along the canal, which attracts a host of local artists displaying their wares. After lunch, accompany your guide on a short drive to a local olive mill, where you can uncover the farmer’s secrets with a private demonstration and tasting. Return to the boat for dinner.
This morning, in the company of your chef, visit the wonderful covered market in Narbonne to choose ingredients for your dinner. Narbonne is a lively Mediterranean city and an important wine-producing centre. The historic architecture, shady boulevards and location on the banks of the Canal de la Robine all contribute to its charm. Enjoy lunch at a charming bistro in the market and then return to the barge for an afternoon's cruise to the port at Homps. Dinner is served on board.
After breakfast, visit Minerve, an ancient village perched on a limestone cliff, overlooking the vineyards below. Its now-ruined castle was once a Cathar stronghold, besieged and captured by Simon de Montfort. Return for lunch on board, relax and soak up the ever-changing views from the comfort of the deck, or perhaps walk or cycle along the towpath. Tonight we moor on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Trèbes, the perfect spot for dinner at a local restaurant.
Relax on board as you navigate your final stretch of canal this week. Admire the beautiful scenery along the Canal du Midi from the deck. After lunch, alight to tour one of Europe's largest medieval fortresses, Carcassonne. Explore the intricate fortifications of the two castellated walls, one inside the other, stretching about a mile in circumference. The views from the battlements towards the Pyrenees are stunning. Visit the cathedral, remarkable for its stained-glass rose windows, elegant Romanesque nave and Gothic transepts. Back on board, your chef is preparing your farewell gala dinner.
Please check out this morning by 09:00.
After breakfast, your crew bids you farewell as you disembark for your onward travel arrangements. We look forward to welcoming you back on board soon.
Please note, in exceptional circumstances it may be necessary to alter the route without prior notice.
