French Hotel Barge Anjodi Video
The 300-year old Canal du Midi skirts the sun-drenched shores of the Mediterranean before meandering inland through ancient villages, Roman fortifications and famed vineyards. The main canal is 241 kilometers long, and connects the Garonne to the Mediterranean from Toulouse to the Étang de Thau at Marseillan.

The French Hotel Barge Anjodi is of classic Dutch design, specifically rebuilt to navigate the 330-year-old Canal du Midi.
Anjodi is a very well-known hotel barge having achieved "film star" status some years ago following her many appearances in the television series Rick Stein's French Odyssey when she carried the eponymous chef on a voyage of culinary discovery through Southern France.
