LE SOMAIL TO MARSEILLAN

Day 1, Sunday - Le Somail
You are met in Narbonne** and transferred by private chauffeured minibus to Anjodi. Enjoy a chilled Champagne welcome with canapés and the opportunity to meet your crew, followed by time to walk around the charming village and perhaps explore its beautiful bookshop. Enjoy a short evening cruise before dinner on board.

Day 2, Monday - Le Somail to Sallèles d’Aude
This morning, there is a fascinating tour of Carcassonne. Dating back to the Gallo Roman era, this is the most complete medieval fortified city in existence today. With its 52 watchtowers, portcullis and extraordinary repertoire of defences, it resisted the many armies that tried to storm this Camelot setting. In the afternoon, cruise along the 330-year-old Canal du Midi and through a series of locks on the Canal de la Robine, with excellent walking and biking opportunities en route, to your mooring at Sallèles d’Aude. Dinner on board.

Day 3, Tuesday - Sallèles d’Aude to Capestang
This morning, cruise to Capestang, passing vineyards and pine trees, with magnificent views of the Pyrenées along the way. There is time to explore the village, once the summer retreat of the Bishops of Narbonne, with its magnificent 14th century collegiate church. After lunch on board, your excursion is to Minerve, the ancient capital of the Minervois, which boasts a 12th century Cathar fort surrounded by deep limestone gorges. Besieged by Simon de Montfort in 1210, its hilltop location affords spectacular views and the museum’s fascinating miniature recreation of the bloodthirsty Cathar rebellion completes the intriguing picture. Dinner on board.

Day 4, Wednesday - Capestang to Colombiers
This morning, visit Narbonne, a Roman Mediterranean capital where the Visigoth monarchs once lived. Tour the Archbishop’s Palace, Cathedral and Via Domitia and explore the indoor market at the hub of this bustling town, where you will have time to shop or simply absorb the vibrant atmosphere. Return to the hotel barge for a cruise via the world’s oldest canal tunnel at Malpas, perhaps pausing en route at the Poilhes brewery for a tour and tasting, to your mooring in the pretty village of Colombiers, which lies on an old Roman road, the Via Domitia. There may also be time to view the star-shaped fields and the 13th century irrigation channels of Montady from L’Oppidum d’Enserune. Dinner ashore tonight at a gastronomic restaurant in Beziers.

Day 5, Thursday - Colombiers to Portiragnes
After breakfast, cruise to Fonserannes and descend through the unique flight of 7 oval locks, before crossing the aqueduct over the River Orb to moor in Portiragnes where the Canal du Midi is at its closest to the Mediterranean. For those who are feeling active, the beach is only 20 minutes away by bicycle. This afternoon, enjoy an informative winery tour and tasting at the 14th century Château de Perdiguier, named after King Charles V’s finance minister and famed for its frescoes and Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. Dinner on board.

Day 6, Friday - Portiragnes to Marseillan
This morning, Anjodi sets off through the famous round lock and then the nature reserve of Bagnas, with potential sightings of flamingos, white egrets and other migrating birds before heading out onto the inland saltwater lake of Thau, past the oyster beds. After mooring in the fishing village of Marseillan, home of Noilly Prat vermouth, take an excursion to Pezenas, the delightful 16th century capital of the Languedoc mostly known for its associations with the French playwright Molière. On the way back to the barge, there is the option to visit a local oyster farm to sample its delicious produce with a glass of white wine while enjoying a view of the oyster beds. Captain’s Farewell Dinner on board.

Day 7, Saturday - Marseillan

Enjoy a chilled champagne welcome with canapés and the opportunity to meet your crew, followed perhaps by a relaxing stroll around the lovely lakeside village of Marseillan, home of Noilly Prat vermouth. You might also visit a local oyster farm, to sample its delicious produce with a glass of fragrant Faugeres and a view of the oyster beds. Dinner on board.

Day 2, Monday - Marseillan to Les Aresquiers
This morning, tour the 12th century Cistercian Abbey of Valmagne, renowned for the medieval medicinal herb gardens and some simply stunning architecture.

It’s an early start today as you spend the morning cruising towards the Camargue National Park past flocks of pink flamingos and wild white horses  to the ancient walled city of Aigues Mortes which was built for the Crusades. Lunch aboard and then it’s into the city to climb the 12th century defensive Constance Tower, originally built by Charlemagne in the 8th century.

Dinner is taken ashore in one of the many local restaurants specialising in dishes of the Camargue.

Day 4, Wednesday - Aigues Mortes to Franquevaux
This morning, cruise towards the Petit Rhone River. After lunch, visit Arles, the city famed for inspiring over 300 paintings by Van Gogh; explore the 1st century Roman Arena, St Trophime’s Basilica and the museum of Provencal life and stroll the pedestrianised sleepy heart of this old Camargue capital. Dinner on board.

Day 5, Thursday - Franquevaux to Vallabregues

FAMILY CRUISE

If you are a family with children, a bespoke itinerary is created and a maximum of 4 excursions from the Classic Cruise Itinerary is substituted with your preferred family activities.

The following activities can usually be arranged on-board directly with the barge Captain and included in your itinerary without any extra charge, unless otherwise stated:

Aqualand Park – Cap d’Agde (3 years+)
Situated on the southern peninsula of the ancient seaside town of Agde, this outdoor water park includes a large pool, several slides, a wave pool and a shaded relaxation area.

Prehistoric Caves at Limoussis
The prehistoric Caves at Limoussis are a series of underground tunnels dating back over 100 years. They also boast the largest array of aragonite crystals in the world. A fair level of fitness is required as the paths within the cave are relatively steep.

Tennis & Badminton
The International Centre of Tennis in Agde has 22 exterior tennis courts – 4 with Astroturf, 12 with grass and 6 with clay. The centre also has 4 badminton courts.

Pirateland – Water Activities & Theme Park (3 years+)

Oppidum d’Enserune – Pre-Roman Hilltop Settlement near Beziers
This fascinating pre-Roman site is one of the most important in Europe and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. First settled by the Celts in the 6th century BC, this site was inhabited until the 1st century AD after the Roman invasion of the region. The site also offers gorgeous views over La Clape, the Mediterranean Sea and the dried lake of Montady.

Canoeing & Kayaking
This is the chance to canoe and kayak in the gorges of the Herault River. Several time durations are available during the cruise, depending on the time slot allocated by the barge’s itinerary – the whole day (more than 3 hours of activities), half a day (from 1½ to 3 hours) or a quick tour (from 1 to 2 hours).
