We are a quality canal boat hirer based in the South of France on 'Le Canal des Deux Mers' (the canal of the two seas). One of the most famous canals in the world and a world heritage site which links the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. We have two bases, near each end of the canal. Both bases are easily reached by road, rail or cheap flights.
Our base in the East is at Le Somail on the Canal du Midi is on 'le grand bief', the longest pound on any French canal with a 108km lock- free round-trip available through the heart of the Minervois wine region and close to the fascinating cities of Carcassonne, Narbonne and Beziers.
Our base in the West is at Meilhan on the Canal de Garonne which is close to Bordeaux and the canal runs through the unspoilt Aquitaine region, with superb scenery, interesting historical sites and it's own wine regions of Bordeaux, Graves and Buzet. This base also provides access to the stunning River Baise.
From both bases you will have a memorable experience of this waterway and region, along with gastronomic delights, following in the footsteps of celebrity chef, Rick Stein.
Our quality all-steel English canal boats, beautifully maintained, are excellent value for money at prices from only £127 per person per week *. We are the only English Narrowboat operator in the South of France.
Friendly, personal attention (English speakers) awaits you at both of our boatyards.
Sorry, but we cannot offer one way trips, other than our special offer trips.
Combine time on one of our boats with time exploring the whole Minervois region, based at our two bedroom gîte with swimming pool in Le Somail
