The cruise options set sail through the historical and beautiful Gascony & Bordeaux region of Southwest France on the canal and river system between Bordeaux and Toulouse. It is a region of rural calm, medieval villages, Roman art, some of the finest fruit in Europe, and of course in the Bordeaux area many of the finest vineyards in the world. There are scores of Bastides (medieval fortified towns), many in a superb state of preservation as well as more recent chateaux and churches. There are also some impressive examples of canal engineering -- such as the water-slope at Montech, and the aqueducts at Moissac and Agen.

You can pick from 2 luxurious hotel barges for this portion of your trip. Hotel barges are smaller boats that typically transports no more than 20 guests.
