Destinations / France / Canal du Midi

The Canal du Midi is an icon among destinations suitable for houseboat holidays. You'd be hard pressed to find waters in the world that have such a significant history but are still alive today. The Canal du Midi will not only get you the perfect amenities for a houseboat holiday, but also the unmistakable atmosphere of the French south that will get under your skin.

Significant history

The Canal du Midi waterway, which was built in the 17th century, is 240 kilometres long and connects the French cities of Toulouse and Sète. Together with the Garonne River (now a side canal along the river), the canal connected the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea, which is why it is still known as the 'Canal of the Two Seas'. Because it is a technically demanding and unique waterway, the Canal du Midi was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996.

Living presence

Although the canal is considered an important historical monument, it is still widely used today. The entire route from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean is functional and navigable - other houseboats, motor yachts and hotel boats will keep you company on the water. The area is ready for water tourism. In every village you will find moorings for smaller vessels, and there are also many marinas where you can replenish the necessary supplies. In the larger towns, you can also enjoy the charming southern French atmosphere in the many restaurants and cafés that literally dot the canal banks.

What awaits you

If you want to sail the entire Canal du Midi, you'll probably board near Toulouse, nicknamed the pink city thanks to its typical brick houses. Toulouse will get you not only with its relaxed student atmosphere, but also with its excellent French gastronomy, which is ubiquitous.

The current of the water will carry you on to Carcassonne, the best-preserved medieval fortress town in Europe. Although Carcassonne is a place that will captivate you, arm yourself with patience if you don't like crowds of other tourists.

Our other bases for sailing are located in the historic and artistic town of Narbonne, which is definitely worth seeing. Estimated to be more than 2,500 years old, Narbonne will give you a taste of antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the golden age of winemaking, which dates back to the late 19th century.

Between Fonsérannes and Béziers is a place that no cruise lover should miss. The nine locks of Fonserannes are an engineering marvel and a work of art at the same time. In particular, the lift to the town or the water lock roundabout for boats will give you a unique experience.

In addition to the historical sights, you will also enjoy the landscape near the canal, which you can explore by bike. The surroundings of the canal towpath will be covered with mature plane trees, pine groves and often picturesque villages with gothic bell towers. Most of the towns around the Canal du Midi have a long history. For example, stop in the fortified town of Villefranche-de-Lauragais or the villages of Gardouch, Montgiscard or Ayguevives.

And we don't even need to mention the obligatory stops in the surrounding sun-drenched vineyards of the Languedoc Roussillon region. The region is known as the number one wine producing region in France. Enjoy your glass right among the vines or open a bottle while watching the sunset from the deck of your houseboat. Both options will give you an unforgettable experience.

Useful information

  • The locks on the canal are fully automated or manned. Opening hours are usually 9.00-18.00, but check with us for information, as times often change according to the season. Also expect a lunch break between 12.30-13.30. Please be careful on public holidays, opening times may vary.
  • "Traffic jams" are not uncommon at the cascade of locks in Fonsérannes. We recommend that you take a boat above/below the cascade of locks and set off on foot or by bike to explore the old town of Béziers.
  • There is a charge for passing through the locks.
  • You do not need a skipper's licence on the Canal du Midi. Before you set sail, you will undergo training on how to safely sail, land and navigate the locks.
