Just four privileged passengers travel in style aboard what is one of the most luxurious barges in France. The craft is yours as you float along the tree-shaded Canal du Midi between Carcassonne and Beziers. On deck, stretch out on a sun lounger, beneath a sheltering parasol, to view the passing villages and fields. Or step inside, where the spacious lounge—with its huge picture windows—has a library, writing desk and soft armchairs.



The spacious Salon/Dining Room is flooded with plenty of natural light due to the many picture windows.

It is a calm, inviting place to unwind with a book or seek shelter from the elements.

The decor is light and warm with unobtrusive colors that foment relaxation.

Other amenities include:

  • 1 comfortable sofa
  • Coffee table
  • 2 armchairs
  • Writing desk
  • HI FI stereo system with CD player
  • Guest computer with internet access
  • Dining table with seating for up to five (5) people


The modestly-sized Sun Deck offers an open-air gathering place for travelers who wish to view the surrounding countryside more intimately, or to engage in titllating conversation with fellow travelers amidst soothing French sunlight.  

The deck furniture consists of:

  • 1 table
  • 4 chairs
  • 1 parasol     


Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the onboard bicycles as often as they like. 

Most People choose to disembark the barge at a lock to visit local villages, then return to the canal and meet the barge further along (the barge travels slowly; therefore, this is not a problem).

An air-conditioned minibus is also available for excursions by vehicle.
