A Stylish Way to Cruise a Famous Canal
The Canal du Midi is one of the oldest canals in Europe. Linking the Atlantic with the Mediterranean, this remarkable 17th-century feat of engineering was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. This famous waterway meanders past sleepy canalside villages, sun-drenched vineyards, and offers view of the snow-capped Pyrenees.
The deluxe French hotel barge Clair de Lune cruises the Canal du Midi between the charming village of Le Somail and the fortified city of Carcassonne, where you will discover some of the most beautiful scenery in the south of France along the way. During your voyage along the tree-lined Canal du Midi you will visit historical sites such as the spectacular Cathar town of Minerve, the elegant city of Narbonne, and enjoy wine tastings at renowned local domaines.
From mid-July to September, Clair de Lune cruises an alternative itinerary on the Canal du Midi passing Carcassonne and Castelnaudary. Excursions included are to Limoux for a private wine tasting, the medieval Cathar town of Mirepoix and beautiful Lac de Saint-Ferréol.
