Reviews for the The Languedoc Vineyards Cruise
Great boat easy to handle, great base for visiting the wine areas
We travelled to Narbonne and back and past Homps to Trebbes and back lots of good restaurants, vineyards and places to visit in fact whole week went too fast. Saw kingfishers and much wild life on the way. It was disappointing to see the Plane trees being felled.
We had two families cruising the Canal du Midi. This was arguably our best vacation ever as it blended family and good friends, great wine and food, amazing castles and villages, beautiful scenery and was the most relaxing trip you could imagine! We spent two nights in Carcassonne and that was definitely a favorite for everyone as our family had never been to Carcassonne and the other family had never been to Europe (let alone a castle!). But my most memorable aspect of the trip was just spending hour after hour casually cruising down the Canal in a simply stunning atmosphere!
The stop in Carcassonne was the main stop we enjoyed, spending two nights there instead of just one so we could see everything we wanted. The €20 per night we spent to park at the public dock was money well-spent (could get in to their shower facililties as well as laundry). But the things I would definitely recommend is to take advantage of as many of the local markets as you can, enjoy breakfasts of baguettes and and croissants and lunches of local meats, cheeses, breads, wines, etc as you are parked alongside the canal. Truly magical!
