Late availability on the Canal du Midi with special offers applying
Luxury hotel barge operator European Waterways offers a range of relaxing, 6-night cruises on the waterways of France, including this Summer aboard the 8-passenger Enchanté, with its spacious cabins, which are the largest of any hotel barge on the 300-year old Canal du Midi, a UNESCO world heritage site.
The tree-lined Canal du Midi - with its attractive towpaths for walkers, joggers and bikers - runs along the sun-drenched Mediterranean shore of South-Western France before meandering inland with magnificent views of the snow-capped Pyrenees Mountains and the rolling Minervois vineyards.
Enchanté, with its double decks is contemporary in style, with 4 beautifully-appointed, en-suite twin, or double suites, air-conditioning, a large lounge/saloon, sun deck with hot tub, alfresco dining area, and a demonstration galley where guests can watch the skilled chef at work. The Enchante’s tastefully furnished interior features exotic hardwoods and a remodelled dining area with a stylish, contemporary twist, bring to this barge “a new level of luxury and comfort on the famed Canal du Midi,” according to Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways.
Currently availability exists on two 6-night, all-inclusive cruises aboard Enchanté, departing on either 11 or 18 August, with cruise fares starting from £3,170 per person, which include a £500pp reduction.
Like all the hotel barges in the European Waterways fleet, Enchante will be fully crewed with a captain, gourmet chef, hostesses and a tour guide. Based on double occupancy, all fares include: include: comfortable accommodation in air-conditioned, en- suite cabins, all gourmet meals on board, fine wines, open bar, daily escorted shore excursions, entrance fees, local transfers and the use of all barge facilities such as bicycles to explore the towpaths.
Alternatively, for those wishing to travel with friends or family - ideal for multi-generational holidays - Enchanté can be chartered exclusively at 10% off on two selected departures: 4 August and 27 October 2013. The cost for a 6-passenger charter: £22,842 including the 10% reduction.
