Boat hire

Yet another way of exploring the Canal du Midi!

Make yourself comfortable and set off for an hour, a half day or even a full day on the Canal du Midi on board a small boat that you can sail yourself.

With capacity for 5 to 7 people, renting one of these boats is a great way of enjoying the relaxing scenery of the Canal du Midi, a listed Unesco world heritage site. Set sail for a wonderful moment of peace and quiet on this part of the Grand Bief (or ‘long pound’) overlooking the surrounding countryside.
