Canal du Midi
Enjoy a cruise in the sun and discover the “canal des deux mers” built by Baron Riquet (1604-1680). The canal du Midi is listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site and everything is untouched, from its round and oval locks to its arched bridges in romanesque style... From Agde, a famous little fishing town or from Homps, surrounded by the Minervois vineyards, the canal lazily meanders through a romantic landscape, full of a thousand Mediterranean fragrances.

Your cruise will be a never-ending delight under the sunshine which filters through the trees, among the shimmering tones of flowers and the chirp of crickets and grasshoppers. You will enjoy being with your family or friends, walking or riding on tow-paths, stopping at historic or gastronomic localities, totally losing track of time. These are the memories and images that we hope you will keep from your cruise on the Canal du Midi.

The Camargue is a wonderful destination where you can have a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Being on a canal boat is, in that case, the perfect place to be. You can easily reach a beach on foot or on your bicycle to have a break near the Mediterranean Sea or to discover the wild side of the Camargue : - It is a marshy land, with a large expanse of natural parklands and a magnificent Wild Bird preserve. There you can observe : pink flamingos, black bulls, wild horses and over 350 different species of wild birds.

Be ready for adventure and experience real maritime cruising on the Lake Thau ! Many friendly harbours such as Marseillan, Bouzigues, Mèze or Frontignan are open for delightful visits. Do not miss the cultural oddities of : - Aigues-Mortes, a medieval city whose history is linked to the kings of France. This town is protected by a 1640-meter-long rampart. - Béziers, located in Cathare land that you will cross if you cruise towards the Canal du Midi..
