Staying in the sunny countryside and cruising on the historic Canal du Midi is the perfect choice for both experienced and beginners. You can set sail from any of our five bases on the Canal du Midi to the heart of the Camargue and beyond - you'll lay out a tailor-made itinerary and journeys can be cultural, gastronomic, and above all leisurely. It's up to you to decide.

The canal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Canal du Midi was built by Pierre-Paul Riquet in the 17th century. It connects the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and invites you to travel, among other things, to the Languedoc countryside - the most prolific wine-growing region in France.
