Boat on the Canal du Midi
average rating of 4.6666665 based on 35 reviews

I didn't realise the boat was static when I booked!

  • 4 of 5

The boat was clean, had everything that was needed, however, was a bit cramped for two tall people. The restaurant at the lock served delicious food, and it was all very tranquil. Patrick was very helpful when we arrived, and meticulously showed us the workings of the boat. He was easy to reach via email too.

Wind in the willows on the midi canal

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on the little barge for six weeks. During that time we enjoyed the ebb and flow of life on the canal. The lauragais is a beautiful area and near Gardouch there are many beautiful villages. It is also within east striking distance of Gaillac, Revel, the Pays Cathar, Rodez, Bram and Andorra. Then there is all of the history and places underpinning the canal itself. There are some good restaurants (Envie de Mets in Gardouch) and the Hotel de France (Ville Franche de L) offers simple lunches. The Super U market in VF de L supplies everything you need.

The barge itself is small but well equipped. The two outside (fore deck and top) offer peaceful eating areas. Patrick provided battery lights that we suspended from the trees for the evening.

If you are tall you need to watch your head inside! The space is suitable for 2 adults and two smallish children, We had an extra couple of adults whom we knew well (and got to know better !) who stayed for four nights but longer would have been hard.

We had some equipment failures early (fridge and gas) but Patrick was terrific and fixed them up promptly. He was easy to deal with and is a very decent man.

Our time on the barge was very enjoyable. I am happy to recommend the barge to others.

Nous avons passé une agréable semaine sur le dimples, repos total, balade à vélo au bord du canal, visite de Carcassonne magnifique, les lacs , les gens tjrs agréable . Le bateau très confortable, bien équipé, et le propriétaire Patrick bayard vraiment très gentil et surtout serviable. D'ailleurs je le remercie d'avoir fais tout son possible pour retrouver mon sac de chaussures mis par mégarde à la poubelle. Merci mille fois . Pour tout les amoureux de la nature je vous le conseil.

Idéal pour sortir de son train-train quotidien

  • 5 of 5

Calme, sérénité, beauté des majestueux platanes. Promenades à pieds, à vélo le long du canal. Rencontres amicales, insolites. Proche de la mer, de la montagne. Ce logement sur l'eau est parfait. Le propriétaire est accueuillant, souriant et les brochures mises à disposition sont très bien. Alentour petits restos sympas !!!Admirer les bateaux, les péniches, la vie tout autour de l'écluse et la petite chapelle !!!! QUel dépaysement !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dépaysement et repos assuré !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 4 jours sur ce bateau. Excellent accueil (personnalisé !), cadre enchanteur, proximité de Toulouse, Albi ou Carcassonne. ! Quel plaisir de pouvoir profiter de manger sur le toit du bateau ou se réveiller avec vue sur l'eau. Un excellent endroit où passer quelques jours pour s'aérer l'esprit ! Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir !
