Rent a quality English narrowboat on the Canal du Midi and enjoy cruising through vineyards, picturesque villages and historical towns. Our boats sleep between 2 and 10 and offer every comfort for your self-drive canal boat holiday in the Languedoc.

We offer boat hire for short breaks, a one week, two week or 10 day cruise, or choose a 'Cruise and Stay' holiday, combining a week in our beautiful gite with private pool. There is no license required and no previous experience necessary.

Quality steel Canal boats

Choose from our range of high quality English style narrowboats, or rent a 'wide beam' boat, built specially for the larger French canals. All are stylish and built for your comfort with quality wooden interiors.
