Day
Step aboard and enjoy a welcoming champagne reception, meeting your crew and guide for your cruise along the waterways of France. Later this evening, enjoy your first gourmet dining experience on the barge. Your private chef will showcase the region's tastiest seasonal ingredients, paired with fine wines.
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 tour of the spectacular medieval fortress of Carcassonne. Explore the intricate fortifications of the two vast castellated walls, one inside the other, and enjoy the breathtaking views from the battlements towards the Pyrenees. Visit the cathedral, remarkable for its stained-glass rose windows, elegant Romanesque nave and Gothic transepts. Return to the barge in time for cocktails on deck and a sumptuous dinner.
Enjoy a leisurely morning cruise from the comfort of the sun deck, or perhaps walk or cycle along the towpath. Disembark mid-morning to discover Minerve, an ancient village perched on a limestone cliff, which overlooks the vineyards below. Its now-ruined castle was once a Cathar stronghold, besieged and captured by Simon de Montfort. Return to the boat for lunch and an afternoon cruise to our mooring at Homps. Tonight, enjoy dinner on shore at a charming local restaurant.
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 works. 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. On the way back to the boat, stop to sample wine from a local domaine before returning to the boat for aperitifs and a delicious dinner on board.
In the company of your chef, experience the wonderful covered market in Narbonne and help choose the ingredients for tonight's dinner. Narbonne is a lively Mediterranean town and 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 local bistro situated in the heart of the lively market, then return to the barge for an afternoon cruise to the port of Capestang. Dinner is served on board.
Relax on board as the barge navigates the final stretch to our mooring in Béziers. Admire the picturesque scenery along the Canal du Midi from the deck. After lunch on board, your guide escorts you 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 marvel at the engineering wonder that is the Fonserannes Locks. This iconic flight of staircase locks comprises eight chambers and nine gates. Return to the barge where Chef has been busy 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.
