|Luxury barge cruise vacations on the French hotel barge EMMA, cruising the Canal du Midi, Provence and Camargue in the South of France|
||Born in Sète, the little Venice of the Midi, René knows the canal and surrounding area like the back of his hand. He has a good pedigree for Barge Cruising; his grandfather rounded the Horn in sailing ships in the 1900s, and his uncle was a violinist on the "Normandy" and the "France" in the heyday of transatlantic ocean liners. René is a qualified engineer with a passion for mechanics, ensuring everything runs smoothly on board.|
||Liz is a graduate from an Irish catering college and has spent many years in the hospitality business. Living in France for over twenty years now, Liz hails from Ireland. She is a superb chef and it is her ambition to serve the very best of French Regional Cuisine during your stay on board. Liz loves sharing recipes and ideas with her guests and her kitchen is always open. She buys the best of locally produced ingredients fresh from the market and then cooks them with flair and imagination.|
Together, René and Liz provide their guests an insight into local traditions and an opportunity to discover some of the lesser known treasures of Languedoc.
