The ancient Roman city and former prosperous seaport of Narbonne is famous for its magnificent Merchant's Bridges - one of the few remaining characteristic bridges that are lined with houses and shops. Before reaching Castelnaudary you will see many picturesque villages, beautiful vineyards and the medieval sprawling fortress of Carcassonne.

A stay in the sunny countryside and a cruise 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.
